Enjoy your website and make it part of your life going forward. Use it to connect and look up as many of your

Life is truly a journey. Back in the day, all we as students could think of was finishing off at school.
Today as we reminisce, most will attest to the fact that your school days is undoubtedly the most unforgettable.
Rylands High School, its educators and all those that formed part of it certainly shaped us into what we have
become today. Our lives are so busy today that we don’t pause to acknowledge relationships of good
friends and mentor that shaped our lives so positively. Make this website your portal to connect and keep in
contact with as many old friends and ex educators.
This is exactly what this “Rylands High School Alumni” body wishes to achieve with this Reunion and all other
activities related thereto. What a wonderful way to celebrate our ageing by remembering those that
shaped it for us and who was part of our journey, be it friends or mentors.

A decade or two ago, ours was a tiny, struggling school. Today our students and scholars cover the globe and their contributions
to society make a difference wherever they are. As alumni who truly love and faithfully support this great institution, i know you share a pride in what we are intending to do and where we plan to go.
Alumni are one of many titles that you bare and it is also a title that lends definition to your life in certain respects.
The word itself is derived from the latin verb “alere”” to nourish” and literally means “nourished ones”
The alumni presents us with an opportunity to reflect upon our school life.these thoughts compel us to recognize and thank the school without which our achievements in life,whether huge or small,would not have been possible. We all play a role in the wider society. We should use our positions of influence, to direct the development of our society and in particular the aims and objectives on the alumni association.
I call on all of our ex-students to be a part of this alumni and in so doing act as an inspiration to society and the educators and learners of Rylands High school.
