There was much to celebrate at Queen’s College today.

And this morning, students, Principal Dr. David Browne, Chairman of the Board Novaline Brewster, Minister of Labour, Dr. Esther Byer-Suckoo and other old scholars, parents and friends of the Husbands, St. James school assembled at the Western Light Church of the Nazarene in Oxnards to celebrate the 130th Anniversary of the founding of the school.

Not only did Browne outline the achievements in a number of areas such as academics and sports, he also told the congregation that Queen’s College was also one of the leading schools in the region.

“This is a time where we put God first and we reflect on our achievements. I always say that schools are like civilisations, they rise and they can fall. You just need one mistake for us to fall and we would not let it fall. We are going to continue to rise,” Browne said.

In his sermon, Dean Dr. Frank Marshall gave the congregation the history of the school from the church’s perspective and he told them that to whom much is given much is expected.

Queen’s College was founded in 1883. (DS)
