Eunice has a very special tradition when it comes to celebrating the birthday during the month of May. The celebration serves as the perfect time to reunite all her daughters from years gone by. Old Girls visit the school on her birthday to motivate present learners and paying tribute to our school so dear.
Eunice women join together at a special assembly to observe a common day of prayer in March each year. Eunice ladies join hands with woman across the world to become more aware of the other countries and cultures. This special moment serves as a reminder to the girls that they must use their strengths and use them in the service of society. The World Day of Prayer aims to demonstrate that prayer and action are inseparable and that both have immeasurable influence in the world.
Eunice ladies celebrate their womanhood in August each year prior to National Woman’s day. This assembly serves as a reminder of the privilege we have to be part of Eunice and the many blessings we enjoy as girls in green.
