Sacred Heart pupils bound for high school

Sacred Heart primary School (SHS) held a graduation ceremony celebrating pupils’ advancement to the Saba Comprehensive School. The ceremony was held Saturday afternoon in the new building auditorium of the Saba University School of Medicine in The Bottom. A substantial number of family, friends and teachers turned out for the event filling the large auditorium. Commissioner of Education Chris Johnson held an official congratulatory speech for the school teachers and parents who overcame transitional challenges and focussed on his personal involvement in giving Saban history lessons to the pupils. He is impressed with the large graduating class and aided by his daughter he handed each of the pupils a book, the “Saban Lore -Tales from My Grandmothers Pipe” written by his father Will Johnson. He encouraged them to read about the history of Saba and take pride in its unique aspects. He said, “We are the first real Sabans” as the Amerindians and Arawaks were transient, spending only a few months a year on the island.
