CedarBridge celebrates anniversary in style
CedarBridge Academy celebrated its 20th anniversary with a banquet this weekend.
More than 300 people attended the festivities, which featured a range of live entertainment from CedarBridge alumni.
Among those at the event were Colette Codrington-Ford, Phyllis Harshaw, Alfreida Dill, Devina Butterfield, Victoria Outerbridge, Karen Simons, Robert Steede and Kalmar Richards, who have worked at CedarBridge since its inception.
Gina Davis, who hosted the event with student and musician Jonathan Simons, said: “We had students from the first class in the school, along with former teachers and staff.”
Guests were entertained by the Simons Brothers Band, the Onion Pack, the Bodhi Dance Company, and the Noire Theatre Company, all made up of former students and staff.
Brothers in Music, a brass band with current students, had the audience dancing and S4 student Chenin Waldron wowed the audience with gospel songs.
Those attending were invited to share their memories.
Ms Davis said: “Students recalled trips they had taken with Ms Matthews, who took them to Europe and Africa. Some recalled teachers who pushed them to apply for scholarships and, had they not, their role in society would not have been possible.”
