SALCC to hold two graduation ceremonies


PRESS RELEASE – Sir Arthur Lewis Community College, announces that its 30th Annual Graduation Exercise will be held on Sunday December 4 th, 2016 at the Johnson’s Centre at Reduit, and will for the first time comprise two ceremonies.

The first ceremony, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., will see graduands from the Divisions of Teacher Education and Educational Administration (DTEEA), Arts Science and General Studies (DASGS) and Agriculture (DAGRI) and the Department of Health Sciences (DHS) cross the stage to receive their Certificates of Achievements.

Later in the afternoon from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. students from the Division of Technical Education and Management Studies (DTEMS) and those who completed their programmes through the Southern Extension Centre (SEC) in Vieux Fort and the Department of Continuing Education (DOCE) will cross the stage to receive their certificates.

The change to having two ceremonies is the College’s effort to accommodate all graduands and their guests. An unprecedented number of graduands, more than five hundred (500), have expressed their desire to attend the graduation ceremony this year.

The College looks forward to marking the success of its students. The public is invited to join it in the celebration via NTN.

  1. Crap- if that were the case there would be a greater equality in the separation of number of people to graduate at each ceremony. This is just another way to discriminate against south and part time students. That has always been the case with this college. Thos new principal just seems bolder.


  2. Rubbish this to accomadate the small venue they choose.... Why not leave it in the school and solve that issue since accommodating the guests in the school was never an issue... Forwards SALCC....why pay a venue for two long ceremonies..... So you telling me the valaditorian have to speak twice welcome remarks twice guest speaker twice etc.. Too much drama...the graduants should boycott that.
