The National, Monday October 14th, 2013
THE once rundown Kerevat National High School, in Gazelle district, East New Britain, was in high spirits last Friday when it saw 87 Grade 12 students graduating after its restoration programme last year.
This was the school’s 38th graduation but the first for the renovated and upgraded school after it was closed three years ago because of the poor condition of infrastructure there.
Principal Ray Rieme Alo told a hall full of parents and students the secret to success was God.
“I have seen his divine intervention in this school. I must say that I have experience but I found this school to be the most difficult to deal with. God was the secret to this success,” he said.
Alo thanked the students’ representative council, saying it was the best as it provided strong leadership and gave the school a chance to rise up and be different.
“Many schools in the country go down because of the type of leadership provided by their student representative councils,” he said.
He urged the graduating classes never to give up in life.
