Students at the Frederick Smith Secondary School have received an early Christmas gift.

Following the staging of a peace rally yesterday from Jubilee Gardens, The City to Queen’s Park, the students were given early Christmas holiday.

To this end, parents and guardians of students of the Trents, St James, institution are asked to note that there will be no school for students today, Thursday, December 12. School resumes after the Christmas holiday on January 6, 2020. (PR/AGB)
