Bishop: Reach for the stars
Students in newer Secondary schools are being encouraged to pursue success with the same vigour and pride as those in older secondary institutions.
This encouragement came from Barbadian-born Peter Fenty, suffragan bishop in the Diocese of Toronto and a former student of the St Leonard’s Boys’ School.
Fenty, who spoke to the DAILY NATION after delivering yesterday’s sermon at All Souls Anglican Church, said he believed that often graduates of newer secondary schools were not given the kind of recognition they deserved.
“The assumption always is that when people assume certain positions of responsibility in our society the first schools that are thought of are the older secondary schools.
“I think we need to encourage a lot of our students who go to schools like St Leonard’s and Parkinson and other newer secondary schools that they can equally achieve like anyone else if they put their mind to it and set themselves goals and pursue those goals,” he said. (AH)
