Glenmuir High school ignited the streets of May Pen, Clarendon, with their first ever spirit day and road march last Friday, September 14, 2018.
The event was one of many events planned for the school’s Diamond Anniversary celebrations, which officially began on September 9 with a thanksgiving service at the school’s auditorium.
Last Friday, which was observed as Founders Day, saw students- past and present, congregating at Bargain Village in May Pen to kick start the day’s road march and parade. They journeyed down Main Street, then along Manchester Avenue, up Glenmuir Road then ended on the school’s lawns.
The participants were also accompanied by a marching band and a motorcade, which featured classic cars.
“The support was absolutely excellent and massive – we had staff, past and present students, students who are at UWI presently, parents and business owners. In addition to that the energy was up, the vibe was good,” Renee Mair, PRO of the Glenmuir High School Past Students Association, said.
Principal Dr. Marsha Smalling, who is a past-student of the institution, said a special planning committee was formed to satisfy a number of objectives.
“We’ve had a plethora of persons who have contributed to the rich legacy of the school over the years, and I value these people a whole lot. Past principals and teachers, members of the alumni, members of the PTA, members of the business community and the neighboring churches have always shared the vision of Glenmuir and have invested in the school,” Smalling said.
