BGST Convocation 2012

21st convocation

On Saturday 26 May 2012, the BGST family gathered at the historic Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church for an important milestone in the life of the school: the 21st Convocation and Thanksgiving Service, and the 12th TENT Graduation.

The Convocation Address was delivered by Rev Philip Sinden, Vicar of St George’s Church, on “Ministry Under the Cross (1 Cor 4.1-17).” Referring to the example and teaching of Paul, Rev Sinden challenged us to consider the true Christian leader: a servant of God entrusted with the mystery of the Gospel, and a fool for Christ who lives over against the winds of prevailing culture. It was a timely message especially for our new graduates.

We are especially joyful for the graduating class of 2012, the largest ever in our short history. The Council, Principal, Faculty, and Staff congratulate the following, and wish for them God’s richest blessing and empowering.
