Message from Desmond Johnson - Chairman 2013-2016

Chairman's Welcome Message 

Fellow Regentonians, it is with humility and gratitude that I take this opportunity to welcome you all to the Sierra Leone Grammar School Old Boys Association UK Branch communication medium. This site is one of our most important ways which we use to communicate to you all. Our web-master has done a fantastic job and continues to make the site even better.


As an Association, we continue to work very hard to ensure that our beloved alma mater is at the forefront where it belongs. As our former Chairman Mike Edwin always say ”we lead for others to follow”. The last three administrations or so have laid a very strong foundation we need to build upon. Our brand is not only strong and very popular but also prestigious. With all of your support, my administration will endeavour to keep it that way by God’s continuous grace.



As we are all aware, the new Thomas Peyton building was opened at the school on the 25th of March this year, with all the classes operational from the beginning of this school year on the 9th of September 2013. As Chairman, I will like to appeal to all Regentonians in the UK and the Diaspora to continue to support the different projects that are helping to keep the school at the pinnacle of high school education in Sierra Leone. You will all agree with me that our beloved alma mater in no small way played a major role in shaping our early educational journey, whatever each of us have achieved today in life is due to that fact. We must never forget that.


 I am confident that the site will continue to be very beneficial to all of us as a communication medium. As our Lord’s disciple St Paul wrote in one of his letters to the church at Philippines, Philippians 3:13-14”we should forget the things which are behind us and PRESS ON” (our motto).

May God continue to bless our Grammar School.
Floreat  Regentonia.
Desmond Johnson (7313)
