Wolmer's Boys' School held its first general assembly in its new state-of-the-art auditorium on Monday.

The occasion marked the first time in 24 years that the school was holding its general morning assembly inside an auditorium, after the previous building was destroyed by fire in 1991. Generations of Wolmerians had to endure whatever nature had in store at least twice a week for the morning devotions. Project lead Douglas Orane, a Wolmer's 'Old Boy' and former chairman and CEO of GraceKennedy, expressed his exhilaration at the moment on social media.

"First morning assembly in new auditorium at Wolmers. Our young gentlemen finally out of the sun and rain after 24 years!" Orane said.
