CEMETRY RENOVATION PROJECT

As you all know, the Old Lawrencian Association (OLA) had taken up the challenge of restoring and maintaining the School Cemetery. Those of you who have visited the Cemetery in the recent past would have noticed the sad state it is in with the compound wall broken, graves damaged and the graceful statue of the Angel vandalized.

Many of you have asked us why spend money on the Cemetery when there are more pressing infrastructure projects to fund. The answer to this is that the Cemetery is an important part of the School’s history and heritage and should be as dear to us as the Clock Tower, 67 Steps or Top Flats. To restore and preserve their graves would be to show respect to the staff members and their families who helped build this great institution.
