St. Kitts and Nevis (WINN) – The Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC) is celebrating its 35th anniversary under the theme “honouring the past and exploring partnerships for an enriching and sustainable future”.
The Founder’s Day celebration starts on Tuesday, September 26, 2023, launching a year-long calendar of events.
CFBC President Andrew Abraham commemorates the Founder’s Day and 35th Anniversary in an address to speak about the year’s events.
Lecturer at the CFBC, Seana Rogers, was a guest on WINN’s Island Tea on September 26 to speak about the significance of Founder’s Day, the year-long calendar of events to celebrate the 35 years and the need for emphasis on the historical context of just how far the college has come in the 35 years.
“We’re also thinking about how we bring persons into the college, see what we’re doing, how we have family-oriented events that the whole family can come and enjoy… I really do agree with us presenting that historical context to students so that they can understand exactly how far we’ve come. And then also who were aligned with as well. Who see us as so valuable that they have aligned with us as well -all these MOUs that we have with these different institutions… what does that mean for your life moving forward? What does that mean for greater access as well?”
The then College of Further Education (now the Clarence Fitzroy Bryant College (CFBC)) was established in 1988 with the mandate to consolidate and augment opportunities for tertiary-level education in the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis through the amalgamation of the School of Nursing inaugurated in 1966; the Teacher’s College established in 1967; the Technical College in 1971; and the Sixth Form.
