Welcome to the St Augustine's College High School Class Of 1971 web site. Feel free to browse and offer comments on how we can improve the site...
Class of 1971 & Friends,
We are in recovery mode from one of the worst natural disasters to impact the Bahamas this century. Earlier reports stated that we had not experienced such an event since the hurricane of 1929.
Many of our classmates have suffered varying degrees of loss as a result of hurricane Matthew. We commiserate with and continue to pray with and for our comrades, our citizens and our Nation.
A cloud of despair and hopelesness hovers over persons who were still reeling from the depressed economy only to be faced with the loss and destruction of their earthly possessions. We the Class of 1971 are a resiliant bunch and we appeal to those who are able to assist those of us who are less able. This exercise will not be as suucessful as it can unless we know what the needs of the community are. It is time to pool our resources, time talent and treasure for the common good.
There are three data bases which will help the process along:
1. Needs of the community with locations, by island, settlement and /or subdivision.
2. Skills Bank with locations, byisland, settlement and /or subdivision.
3. Resource Bank with locations, byisland, settlement and /or subdivision.
Recommendations and comments are welcome.
Our Alumni Association has launched a fund raising appeal to all Classes of our esteemed institution.
This month, May 2016, will mark 45 years since we held our commencement exercise in 1971. In commemoration of that event and consistent with the Philanthropic nature of the Class of 1971 we thought it fitting to make a donation to our Alma Mater, which will be earmarked for a project to be determined or identified by the school.
It has been proposed that we each pledge $1,000.00 or whatever amount we are led to give. Pledges have already started to roll in. One suggestion is that we allow persons to make installments over the next twelve months e.g. $100.00/month for 12 months ($1,200.00). We may wish to commit to multiples of 45 e.g.
12 x $ 45.00 = $ 540.00
12 x $ 90.00 = $1,080.00
12 x $135.00 = $1,620.00
Some persons have undertaken to raise their pledges.
We begin our appeal in earnest today 1st May 2016 and we look forward to your support.
Pledges may be in the form of cash, cheques, payroll deductions or electronic transfers. They may be given to our Treasurer Anthony Newbold or deposited to the class account at : CIBC First Caribbean International Bank, Bay Street Branch AC#2637744
