Comments by Vamba Fofana - Class of '86:
Members of the St. Patrick's High School (SPHS) Class of 1986 (famously known as the "Fortinbras Army") congregated at the Sacred Heart Cathedral (situated between Broad and Ashmun Streets in Monrovia, Liberia, West Africa) for their joint Commencement Ceremony (with St. Theresa Convent High School, STC), which, naturally, was filled with PRIDE, JOY and RELIEF. The joy of completion wipes away most tribulations of high (secondary) school.
Held in February, 1987, due, in part, to the late arrival of the results of the 1986 West African Examination Council (aka "National Exam") from Accra, GHANA, West Africa, the joint graduation ceremony was well attended. One of the largest graduating classes in SPHS history, the “Fortinbras Army,” among others, well DEFENDED (with PRIDE and DIGNITY) the “territorial integrity” of the now-defunct St. Patrick’s High School, once considered one of the BEST high schools in pre-war Liberia
