The C. R. Walker High School family celebrated their accomplishments yesterday in grand style as they took to the streets of New Providence in a motorcade.
The Knights, according to their Principal Tina McKay are simply celebrating the excellence that the school has been exuding over the past year.
“I’m so proud of my Knights. Today is a day where we are rewarding excellence and excellence not only in sports, but academics as well,” she said.
For more than four years now the school has been the winner of the Government Secondary Schools Sports Association’s (GSSSA) Track & Field meet and has added the Young Chef and Junior Minister of Tourism Speech Competition to their list of victories.
Mrs. McKay stressed that the school has always been known for good academic results, but says that the school is victorious all over.
The principal also credits the Royal Bahamas Police Force (RBPF) with playing a major role in ensuring that the day to day functions of the school are carried out efficiently.
“We are so very grateful to our Commissioner of Police Ellison Greenslade for giving us permission and for allowing us to use all of his officers from Urban Renewal,” she said.
“Sergeant Berkley Johnson, he is an awesome guy. We make a great team here at C. R. Walker. The administrators along with our school police, we love it. We’re working well.”
The motorcade, which began at the school, headed north on Market Street, east past the post office, South on East Street and back to the school.
The Knights’ marching band accompanied by hundreds of the school’s students filled the streets with music and dancing as they celebrated their several accomplishments.
