School sign  ‘a big surprise’

Social Share

STUDENTS OF Grantley Adams Memorial School took matters into their own hands and constructed a new sign on the school’s property.The project, which was carried out by the school’s prefect body, was financed by “students, family members and friends”. Headboy of the St Joseph school, Alan Thompson, said yesterday that the sign, which was installed over the weekend, “was a big surprise to the principal”. “The old school sign had dropped down, so the prefects of this school decided to recreate one that would be better looking and attractive. While the idea was on the market, we put out sponsored walk sheets, we washed cars and did anything good that brought in money. “We would like to especially thank the person who did the sign; he did a wonderful job and charged a wonderful price,” said Thompson.Principal John Mascoll told the DAILY NATION that the previous sign had been “in bad condition” for about two years. He described the students’ initiative as “a perfect example of leadership”.“While approaching the school this morning, I saw the sign. I said to myself ‘Who could put something on the premises without informing me?’ When I got closer I found out that it was this wonderful sign. It is fitting and something that will last for a very long time.” (AH)
