Roses brief

January 2017 Newsletter

Dear Alumni:

I am writing to express my deepest thanks for your continued gifts of talent, time, and treasure to our association. Your membership contribution, your service to our committees, and your sponsorship toward our events clearly show your loyalty to our Alma Mater in Guyana.

When I accepted the task of leading this organization last April, I had personal goals to which you have all helped me to surpass within the last eight months. For that, I will always be grateful to you. With all that youve done to date and for all that you intend to do in the future, I rejoice for your deep commitment to our purpose:

  •   To improve the quality of education and environment of St. Roses High School, Georgetown, Guyana.

  •   To establish a community among past students of StRose's High School, hereafter referred to as St. Roses, to benefit students, their families, faculty, and staff of Georgetown, Guyana.

  •   To raise funds so as to meet the needs of present students, faculty, and staff of St. Rose’s.

Your support has repeatedly played a key role in our success. For the past eight months, your contribution, service, and sponsorship has provided the creation of a Language Lab, Language books, other text books, office supplies, computers, IT equipment, donation of sports equipment by some male alumni and scholarship awards to our Alma Mater in Guyana.
