THE WEEK OF ACTIVITIES marking the 50th anniversary of The Alleyne School Alumni Association came to a close over the weekend with an educator urging the former students to make a stronger bid to woo younger members to the fold.

The advice was given by school principal Julia Beckles as she addressed the grand reunion awards dinner on Saturday at the Sea Rocks Dome, Barbados Beach Club, Christ Church. The room was filled to capacity.

“Dwindling numbers can equate to dwindling finances and, in some cases, influence and commitment, and this could undermine the alumni’s ability to fulfil its mandate,” Beckles said, while noting that the average Alleynian joined the organisation 15 years after leaving school. (WILLCOMM)
