The West African Methodist Collegiate School in collaboration with the West African Methodist Collegiate Old Boys Association (WAMCOBA) has on Sunday 6th June 2021 celebrated their Annual Thanksgiving Service at the WAM Samaria Church in Freetown.

The President of the West African Methodist Collegiate Old Boys Association, Rodney Kallon, brought together the old boys of the great school so that they can work as one to put things in good order in the school, and also discipline the present pupils of the school who may want to behave contrary to the principles of the school.

The Chairman of the Old Boys Association Alex Manley thanked the President and Vice-President of the Old Boys Association for their great efforts in bringing the old boys together and relentless towards rebranding the school for the present pupils.

The Preacher in the Thanksgiving Service, Rev.  Canon Elkanah Thomas, who is also an old boy of the school, during his preaching admonished present pupils to take their work seriously, and not to follow bad friends.

He advised them to study hard in order to produce very good grades and to raise the school flag high by coming out with the best grades in both the BECE and WASCE every year.

Rev. Thomas continued that during their school days they were the best students in School and were not causing problems for their teachers and parents and advised them to respect their teachers and parents.

He encouraged them to put their school work into practice so that when they finish schooling, they will become good pupils in the county by becoming Lawyer’s, Doctors, teachers among others.

During the Thanksgiving Service certificates were given to the best old boys of the School and both the past and present pupils matched from Samaria Church on to their School compound.
