SPRINGER MEMORIAL turned 50 yesterday and celebrated with Minister of Education Ronald Jones unveiling a plaque during a ceremony featuring poetry, songs and the steel pan.

Jones gave the school words of praise, calling it the “beacon of Government Hill”, while featured speaker Roger Husbands told the girls to respect themselves and pursue knowledge and education.

Chairman of the 50th anniversary committee, Nellis Cobham, said it was all to promote the image of the school.

“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 celebrations would continue today with present versus past competing in netball, volleyball and possibly tug o’ war.

There will be a dinner and awards ceremony on Saturday at the Hilton Barbados and a Caribbean cruise next April. (CA)
