San Pedro High School which commenced with a twenty five student enrollment and graduated ten in its first class has passed with flying colors its mission statement - that of providing secondary education to a wider community. Founded in 1971 when there was a yearly average of two students going to high school in Belize City, this year SPHS marched 91 seniors up the aisle at the R. Angel Nuņez Auditorium. Graduation ceremonies and Commencement Exercises were held this Saturday, June 15, 2013, in a ceremony which has been described as historical with the largest graduation class ever.
The highlight of the ceremony was an extraordinary speech delivered by Giselle Flores Lobos who is English teacher and head of Language Department. Giselle remarked that exactly ten years ago and on the same date she was sitting there among the graduates of 2003. She stressed on love of Alma Mater and service to community and urged the graduates to move on in their studies with a mind of returning to their community and serving as doctors, nurses, business managers, entrepreneurs and yes, as teachers too.
