Change the name and you will change the culture

Dear Editor,

Re: Avele one of the finest institutions in Samoa

The Avele name has been misleading some students for many years. Avele is the school of male whose passion is to win everything. 

Becoming a real Avele student is like taking oath in the army, which encourage you to take pride in the school name every where. 

The name has hallucinated some students to act the way they thought would hail them as saints or heroes of the school. 

In depth, the school has developed talented and academics people like you have mentioned. 

The fact is, they do not care at all. About 85% of Avele old students send their children to Samoa College, St. Joseph, Robert Louis etc 

Did you study that?

No you did not, but would help you ease your loyalty to the school name. 

Change the name and you would change the culture of the school. Change their ethics would also change their attitudes. This is coming from an ex-student who cares so much about the school.
