Chairman's Report - 2017

 

Brief History

In 1977 the late Canon Gordon Hazelwood extended an invitation to me to become a member of the Board of Management of the St. Cyprian's Preparatory Boys' School.  I readily accepted the offer. In 1986, a company was formed to take over the current operations so as to ensure the continuation of the School. Mr. Trevor Pinto who was appointed as one of the Directors of the company is still with us today. In 1987, the School was re-located from its original site in Belleville to its current location. Sadly, Canon Hazelwood passed away in 1990.  Canon David Murray subsequently took up the vacant position on the Board. In 2006, Mr. George Edghill also became a Director.

 

Staff

To our teaching staff, the board appreciates your loyalty and dedication. Some of our staff have been with the institution for over forty years. The ancillary staff also lend their support to the fullest. Our appreciation also goes out to Reverend King from St. Cyprians Anglican Church who visits the School on a weekly basis for devotion with the students.  I also extend appreciation to my husband, Tyrone Small -you have given me valuable support behind the scenes with administrative matters. I could not have lasted this long without your help. Finally, to our Principal who gives 100% at all times, you are encouraged to keep up the good work.

 

General

As per the founder's wishes the School has remained an all-boys institution. It strives to provide an all-round education to all students. Not only do we stress on the importance of academic subjects but wherever possible our boys are exposed to various games and other disciplines. We continue to work with many dedicated parents who go beyond the call of duty to assist wherever and whenever possible. To them, we extend our appreciation.

 

Summary

I am pleased to say that I have now completed forty (40) years of dedicated service with St. Cyprian's Preparatory Boys' School. It has been a long and challenging journey but one that I have enjoyed and cherished.

On behalf of my fellow Board members, Mr. Trevor Pinto, Mr. George Edghill and Canon David Murray, I wish you God's blessings.
