St. Edwards Celebrates turns 89

It was overwhelming colourful past Sunday as Saint Edwards Secondary School celebrated its 89th birthday at the May Park ground.

Proud Edwardians, old and young, cheerfully celebrated the school’s birthday in a grand and unique style.

The celebration is seen by many as a threshold in the restoration of the school’s glory of excellence in the field of education.

Saint Edwards is one of the few schools that have acquired remarkable achievements years and years past.

Edwardians, in their speeches, admonished pupils to work toward their goals and try to live up to expectation.

They called on the pupils to bring back the school’s previous respectable status.

An old boy, Mr. Ishmael Tarawalie, who works in the office of Nation Security (ONS), was at the high table and delivered a speech on issues bordering on education.

In his statement, he emphasized on the theme ‘falling educational standards and how to revitalize it.’

To a galaxy of Edwardians, he said, retrogression of the educational standard, Indiscipline, poor dress code is order of the day and has swallowed the glory of the school.

He reflected on how Saint Edwards used to be a fountain of hope and an epitome of academic excellence.

That the political history of S/L can never be said if names of prominent Edwardians such as Mr. Albert Margai and Ex- President Kabbah are not mentioned.

He said Saint Edwardians schools have been excelling and are still standing out as one of the best.

He further called on the pupils to work assiduously in rebranding the status of the school.

“We can all achieve our goals with a concerted effort, as this will also compliment President Koroma’s clarion call for attitudinal and behavioral change.

He encouraged the teachers to work in the interest of the school.

The school’s flag was then raised following a song by Mr. Gbril Saccoh, who doubles as Deputy Director General of NASSIT.
