Springer celebrations continue
THE PARTY WAS at Springer Memorial today as the school celebrated its 50th anniversary to the day.
After an official ceremony with a plaque unveiling by Minister of Education Ronald Jones; an interactive and well received inspirational talk by Roger Husbands; poetry; songs and steel pan, the Springer girls let their hair down and raised the roof in a DJ session.
Chairman of the 50th Anniversary committee, Nellis Cobham said the activity was part of “Springer in the community” where staff and past and present students could indulge in karaoke, games, food and fun.
“We want the students to recognise Springer is going somewhere, so we are showing there is something happening here and we are not looking back,” she said.
Cobham said the activities would continue with present versus past tomorrow at the school in netball, volleyball and possibly tug-of-war.
There will also be a dinner and awards ceremony on Saturday at the Hilton Barbados and a Caribbean cruise in April next year. (CA)
