‘Always bear in mind that your own resolution to succeed is more important than any other’ -Abraham Lincoln
Looking back in time, I reminisce being confronted by challenging experiences and obstacles as Founder, Principal and now, Director of St John’s Co-Ed School. I was the Principal of the school from 2001-September, 2010, at a time when the school was going through much turbulence, engulfed by gigantic and insurmountable challenges.
There’s much I’d like to say, but in essence all I ever wanted, and continue to want out of life, is to be committed to, and give the best to whatever I’m doing, and then let the results speak for themselves.
Today, the past is a closed door for all of us at St John’s. Establishing this school has been a joint venture of many hardworking, committed and supportive people, who placed their faith in the cause of education and focused steadfastly on the vision of the school.
I’m thankful and grateful to God; Whose Mighty Hand has been over us through all! On this note I’d also like to thank Mrs. A. Ireland the Co-Founder of this Institution, and the entire family of St John’s Co- Ed School, staff, students, parents, friends, and well-wishers, who have contributed and assisted towards the establishment and progress of this Institution in various ways. I’d also like to thank the support staffs who have given unconditionally of their time and service over the years. All in all, we are now rated as one of the premier institutions of the city. I am indeed overwhelmed by the progress the school has made within so short a time!
Through all these achievements we are grieved to have lost two of our very dear people, Late Mrs. O. Innis, and Late Mr. D. A. Ireland, who are now with the Lord. St John’s will always miss them as they were instrumental in shaping the destiny of the school. Though not with us now, their contribution to the school permeates the portals of this great Institution.
We have progressed immensely since the inception of this school, as is evident from the fact that we have introduced Class XII commencing in the year 2013. All efforts are being directed towards providing quality education to our students which are in keeping with modern school developments and teaching, learning methodology.
I welcome all parents, students past and present, friends and well-wishers to visit the school from time to time. I once again reiterate your continuous support and goodwill to propel the Institution to far greater heights!
As Chairman of the institution I decree God’s blessing and provision upon the school as it marches ahead into a promising future!
