In a bid to strengthen its links with the school and provide much-needed inspiration to the current student population, the St James High School Past Students' Association (StJHSPA) staged a motivational concert at the institution last Tuesday to mark Peace Day 2016.
Down Sound Records' hottest commodity, recording artiste Nature, whose given name is AndrÈ Ellis, led the impressive list of past students entertainers, who included Mackie Conscious, Sonny Ranking, King Chavez, Ignite and Satta Ranks, Ranking Bagga, and Myco Wave (formerly Mickey Ranks), who dazzled with solid performances.
"When it came to Peace Day, we figured that we should have got the artistes who passed through the school and are doing well in the business to come back and perform at this concert," said Mackie Conscious, who serves on the StJHSPA executive.
Mackie Conscious explained that the StJHSPA had been playing an active role in the school over the years. He said that the organisation was assisting the school through cash donations and other gifts as part of its mandate to boost student development, raise self-esteem, and change the stigma that once tarnished the school.
