High School Honey. This kind that comes in a bottle…..not the other kind that you might remember from your school days. On May 20th, The Star Newspaper featured the school’s agricultural program, (programme for British spellers), headlined – FARMING IN THE CITY, written by reporter Sashana Small.

CLASS OF ’68 CELEBRATING 50 YEARS

SENTIMENTAL, EMOTIONAL, NOSTALGIC…These are the words driving an ardent group of graduates from the class of 1968 who are busily planning their 50th year reunion, to be held September 14 to 16 in Kingston, Jamaica .
The seed for this reunion was planted by Edward Campbell at a meet-up of four past students from the batch of 1968, in Grand Cayman in November of 2017.
Paulette Anderson, who was among those at the meet-up, was immediately sold on the idea, and on her return to the US despite her having an extremely busy and challenging schedule, she wasted no time in setting the ball in motion .
Six months later, with the help of a few other committed batchmates, the reunion has taken shape and what began as a mere suggestion, has morphed into what will be an activity filled weekend.
The event is open to graduates of the class of 1968 ONLY, and their invited guests.
With just six weeks to go, we are bubbling with excitement to connect with our classmates, batchmates and long-lost friends. Commitments to date indicate that this event will be a resounding success. Continue reading CLASS OF ’68 CELEBRATING 50 YEARS
