MBHS – 137th Annual Thanksgiving CelebrationSubmitted by Guest (not verified) on Wed, 04/06/2011 - 21:49
We are old pupils of the Methodist Boys High School (MBHS) located in Kissy Mess Mess, Freetown, Sierra Leone. If you attended MBHS and want to play a part in the life of current and former teachers, students and parents, join us now.
The Wesleyan Methodist Society opened the Methodist Boys High School in April 1874. MBHS is one of the schools that set the pace and standard for high schools that sprouted across West Africa.
It is interesting to note that MBHS still continue to play a significant role in the economy of present-day Sierra Leone. Because of Schools like MBHS, Sierra Leone became a magnet to students desiring higher education all along Anglophone (Englishspeaking) West Africa, Ghana, Nigeria, and The Gambia. Fourah Bay College graduates, from 1827 to the 1960s, were instrumental in promoting Western education across Anglophone West Africa and assumed top administrative and leadership positions in churches and schools across the region. Sierra Leone, therefore, became the seat of Christianity, Western education and culture, and English language in British West Africa. Freetown served as the intellectual center of Sub-Saharan Africa during the nineteenth century.
