I am a former student of St. Mary’s Secondary School. After being away for a while, I decided to visit my old school to see how it looked now.
I was amazed. It is not finished yet, but it is beautiful. It is bigger and it surpassed my imagination. Less yardway but more class space.
I have one main disappointment, nothing gives honour to a wonderful lady why brought it from junior secondary to secondary. Some of the founding teachers are still there.
Mrs. Stevens, Mrs. Hoyte, Mrs. Wallace and Mr. Skerritt. I think they deserve to be memorialized with the lady who started it all, Ms. Myrna Isaac.
Please, stamp these names in the school’s history in a tangible way.
These are the people who carried this school from a war zone to an institution of excellence producing doctors and other professionals.
Give them their flowers now.
