Work in progress. Return here for updates January 3.
On Thursday, March 15, 2018, it was an exciting day at Bahamas Academy of Seventh-day Adventists. It was Commonwealth Day. The offical Commonwealth Day was celebrated on March 12, 2018, but the school had to postpone due to inclement weather.
The special guests were Dame Marguerite Pindling, Governor-General of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas and the Royal Bahamas Defense Force Band. The students were thrilled with the presentation by the Governor-General, but moreso by the up-beat music by the Royal Bahamas Defense Force Band. Also in attendance were Pastor Lenoard Johnson, president of the Atlantic Caribbean Union of Seventh-day Adventists and Pastor Paul Scavella, president of the South Bahamas Conference and chair person of the Bahamas Academy School Board and Mrs. Joan Scavella, Director of Education for the South Bahamas Conference.
