“On Friday 19th January, we’re having an anniversary luncheon and fun day starting at 11a.m. Tickets are $25 per person with chicken, fish, pork, mutton, seasoned rice, rice and peas on the menu.
“On Saturday, 3rd February, 2018, will be the staging of the Mr. and Miss EPPS Show at the Cultural Complex beginning at 7 p.m.,” she said.

“There are different segments that we’re going to have, the normal fanfare segment, there’s the Sporting segment, Talent, of course, Professional Wear segment… where the students depict a profession they would have chosen. There’s also a Question and Answer segment,” the Principal said.
Other items scheduled for the school’s celebration will include an Awards Ceremony and Cocktail on a date to be announced. The public will be invited and a fee will be attached.
Ms. Pemberton also expressed her gratitude to the community for their assistance over the years.
“It’s the 10th anniversary, you’re welcome to celebrate with us and I take this time to say thank you to everyone in the public who would have sponsored or assisted us over the years. We’re very grateful,” she said.
