On Friday, November 22, St. Clement’s School marked the Feast Day of our patron saint with a special assembly.
St. Clement’s School was founded in 1901 by Canon Thomas Wesley Powell, the rector of St. Clement’s Church, using the church’s parish hall before establishing it in its current spot just down St. Clements Avenue.
The School, the church, and the avenue, were all named after the 1st century Saint Clement of Alexandria who is venerated not only in the Anglican Communion, but also the Catholic, Lutheran, and Russian Orthodox churches and many other Christian denominations. The St. Clement’s Cross features on our school shield.
Our St. Clement’s Day Assembly included performances by the Primary Choir and the Chamber Choir and a visit from the Youth Minister of St. Clement’s Church, Dr. Vivia Kay Kieswetter who provided background on St. Clement and inspirational words on the importance of tenacity and determination.
