Dozens of parents and guardians of pupils of a local Pentecostal Church School in the borough of New Kru Town, Bushrod Island were amazed when one of the graduates believed to be in his early 50s was recently called in to receive his certificate as one of the graduates at the school’s 6th graduation ceremony for Kindergarten students.
Dressed in his school’s uniform (Yellow shirt with black strip around the caller and sleeves, and with a black long trouser) with a pair roses given to him by one of his relatives, energetically walked towards the podium to receive his certificate from the principal of the school, many watched with amazements backed with murmuring.
However, the graduate himself paid no attention to the audience as he walked with his fellow graduates with dignity and pride, even though all of his fellow graduates who appeared on the podium to receive their certificates worth to be his grandchildren, he was determined to acquire his education be what matter it could be.
But for this gentleman, 3ft 4” tall who prior to this report begged not to be named in this article, expressed thanks and appreciation to the teaching staff to be an alumna of the school, noting, “I have gone the first step, I will not relent until I enter a university or college,’ the 51-year-old kindergarten graduate in a joyous mood told our staff.
Few years ago, another lady believed to be in her late 60s graduated from a local kindergarten school in Paynesville, outside Monrovia along with some of her great grandchildren with pride as she also received her certificate.
