His Lordship Bishop Gabriel Malzaire made his annual visit to Convent High School on Wednesday, April 30.

There, Bishop Malzaire participated in the morning assembly which was animated by Integrated Science and Spanish teacher, Miss Euvilla Lewis. The Bishop was formally welcomed to the school by Deputy Principal with Responsibility for Pastoral Care, Miss Annette Austrie.

In his address to the students and staff of the school, Bishop Malzaire congratulated the school on the occasion of its 150th anniversary.

“One hundred and fifty years is a long time for a school to be in existence,” he said. “This means that there must be something good that has been happening for the school to continue to exist.”

The Bishop also encouraged the students to take an active role in their education at Convent High School.

“You are part of a rich tradition,” said Bishop Malzaire. “As you know, traditions are very important. Convent High School has a tradition of success. Your presence at this school is a formation of what is to come in your future life.”

As part of the event, the Bishop also blessed the school. Later, entertainment was provided by the students of form 4-A, the Form One Choir and the CHS School Band. Several departments designed displays which were exhibited in the auditorium, the library and the computer lab.

After the students were dismissed, the teachers met with the Bishop in the auditorium to discuss challenges and successes of the day-to-day activities of the school.

“It is always fitting for the head of the diocese to visit the Catholic Schools,” Bishop Malzaire told his staff. “My purpose is to encourage both staff and students. I worked as a teacher for many years and I know it is a difficult task to be a teacher today.”

In his continued efforts to have a presence at Catholic schools, Bishop Malzaire will visit Convent Prep on May 14.
