Old scholars ‘must give back’
MINISTER OF EDUCATION Ronald Jones has raked old scholars over the coals for their lack of contribution to their former schools.
And rather than boasting about the institution, he said it was time that they put some money where their mouths were.
The minister issued the challenge yesterday at the launch of the sixth form of Alexandra School in St Peter, the ninth secondary institution to make such a transition.
He hinted that financial issues might have affected the implementation of the additional form.
“I don’t only want to see fancy dresses in nine-inch heel shoes or men dressed in the best suits. I want to see your commitment to the school that nurtured you to be what you are today,” Jones said in his message to old scholars. (WILLCOMM)
