Call to help each other

Social Share

FORMER STUDENTS of Combermere School were urged to leave a legacy of sharing as the centenary of the Combermere School Old Scholars’ Association (CSOSA) was marked yesterday with a church service at Calvary Moravian Church in Roebuck Street, Bridgetown.
During his sermon, Reverend Adrian Smith, also a Combermerian, underscored the need to share with others in need, and leave that as a legacy.
He cited the Bible’s call for people to be their brother’s keeper, love each other, live with each other, take care of each other and have each other’s backs.
“We have become so selfish and we think that everybody who does not have [is the result] of laziness, but some systems are [unjust], some systems help push persons further down. We must not cast everybody in the same lot but we must still have eyes of compassion.
“We need to leave a legacy through work, work that builds social talents, that helps transform the nation and work that causes us to reverse the systems of injustice and promote human dignity,” Smith said.
The centenary is being celebrated under the theme, Combermere School Old Scholars’ Association: A Century Of Service And Continuing, Up And On.
CSOSA president Junior Jordan said the association had been helping students from its inception, with financial, educational and humanitarian needs.
Centenary activities will include a cruise in August departing from Florida, a centenary magazine and a Colours Of Combermere concert in November. Jordan said plans were also in place to rename some sections of the school. (LK)
