Our beloved institution is an icon of the San Fernando landscape. Generations have passed through our beloved campus, and at over 70 years old, restoration of the campus is sorely needed. Let’s work together to get our school back to it’s former magnificence !

Mikey’s Boys is an initiative that was started years ago to help our own Pres students who have difficult situations at home. It was discovered that quite a few students don’t get to have what we know as a ‘normal’ Christmas. No gifts, no food, no tree, no joy. In some situations, there was even no electricity.
We are Presmen. We take care of our own. Brother Michael taught most of us to look out for the less fortunate, and it’s in this vein that Mikey’s Boys was born. Brother Michael would have taken care of his boys, and we are honoured to continue his legacy.
Christmas PRESents is an initiative that helps other schools that are in rural areas and often forgotten about. Pres staff and students visit a chosen school every year, armed with gifts, snacks, treat bags and games, and spend a day with the school, ensuring that the Christmas spirit is PRESent. In the past, schools such as Icacos Primary, Rancho Quemado RC, and Granville RC primary , have all gotten their special day with Presmen. 2019 will see us heading to Mafeking Primary School, where we will undertake our biggest effort to date, with 383 students from Mafeking to treat.
This initiative is a fantastic lesson in charity and giving back for our Presmen, and takes its’ time firm place in our famed quest for all round development of our young men.
