As the School approaches its 175th Anniversary celebration, the general membership of the Annie Walsh Old Girls Association has released the prescribed dress code for all old girls.

Centered around modesty and class, the dress code is worn to mark the Thanksgiving celebration of the school.

As prescribed every year, all old girls are expected to wear a knee-length white dress with a hat and black shoes.

According to the Awoga’s notice, the headgear should be full white hat or boater and members are forbidden from fixing long and colored unatural hair.

The dress should be at knee length and must be pure white not off-white.

The Annie Walsh Memorial School is the oldest Secondary School for girls in the Sub-Saharan Africa. Based in Freetown, Sierra Leone, it is considered as one of the best in the country. It was established in 1849 originally in Charlotte, a newly established village for recaptives. Over the years, the school has consistently outperformed its peers in terms of academic achievement.
