Dominica Grammar School Prepares For Their 120th Anniversary
The Dominica Grammar School (D.G.S) one of the oldest learning institutions in Dominica, will be celebrating 120 years of existence.
It is one of the most prestigious secondary institutions on Island.
Principal of the DGS, Mrs. Alicia Jean-Jacques says many distinguished persons in the community have gone through the D.G.S, and she is calling on them to celebrate with the school for the anniversary.
The theme for this year is “120 years of honouring the past, celebrating the present and building the future”.
Promotions Officer and teacher at the school, Ms. Narlie Bertand, says they came up with many activities to raise funds for the grand celebration on January 16th, 2013, including a car park, a booth at Creole in the Park, and a garage sale in November.
For the garage sale, they are asking people to donate things that they do not use, so that they can make the official celebration a great success.
There will also be Saturday markets where they will be cake sales and fig and codfish.
There are also asking the parents to give their children 120 cents a month to go towards the grand celebration in January.
There will also be a panel discussion comprising both past and present students in January.
