“These were the words of our Lord Jesus Christ to his disciple Simon Peter when he found him at the Sea of Galilee. We as old boys of St Mary’s have an obligation of launching into the deep for our country, for our children and the generations to come. We need to hold onto and make use of our education to become productive citizens and members of society.”
