The annual carol service was interspersed with prayers and worship by pupils of the school alongside teachers and parents who were in attendance to grace the occasion.
The carol service was organized under the Distinguished Grand Chief Patronage of Mr. Mackotie Sesay, Principal of the Royal Academy International and his wife.
The Head Boy of the school, Mr. Yusuf Kamara gave the welcome address during which he thrilled the entire congregation based on his eloquence in the Queen’s language disclosing how the school is one to reckon with and is one among schools in the country that has been doing well in terms of enhancing educational standards. He expressed appreciation to the guests for attending the service.
The Church Local Preacher, Reverend Arnold A. Smith, in his sermon, advised parents to always teach their children how to pray, stressing the need for all children to be very close to God. He explained that with prayers children will grow up to become good and important people in society.
‘’Prayers will help the children to grow up and become good people,” he emphasized, adding that parents must also care for their children’s needs at all times so that the children will always feel that they belong.
The service was filled with praise, worship alongside the singing of carol tunes as well as the performance of skits by the children.
Delivering the vote of thanks, on behalf of the school, Head Girl, Miss Aminata Mansaray, extended thanks and appreciation to the parents and all the attendees.
She spoke on the need for parents to always care for their children, stressing that when children are cared for they will grow up to become productive people in society.
The School Head Teacher, Mr. Sheku Gibrill Kamara, noted that the East End Primary School was founded wayback in 1939 and since that time up to the present moment the school has produced Lawyers, Doctors and other personalities who are contributing towards the socio-economic development of the country.
He noted that the school has a policy aimed at providing the best tutorials for pupils, a reason, he said, which is responsible for putting the school in an enviable position.
