From a Jamaican in San Francisco!

I saw your site and thought I might try to reach one of two (or both) persons I met and befriended in or about 1956 through 1957 in Kingston, Jamaica.
The two girls, (1) Alberta Harris, and the other, whom I recall only by her first name as (2) "Beverly" , were best of friends.
Both attended Saint George's School for Girls ( or St. George's Girls School ???), in Kingston, Jamaica. At the time, I attended Buxton High School, Kingston, Jamaica. My guess is that both girls were about 12 to 14 years old.
I was about 15 to 16 1/2 years of age. The three of us used to "hang out" and Beverly and I would take the bus home after classes, because we lived comparatively near to each other. I would walk with Beverly to her home/gate from our bus stop.
The problem is that neither of the two Schools exists any longer, and so I am unable to go through either institutions' registration records.
I would like to get in touch with either or both of my former contacts. I do recall that Beverly might have been sent abroad (from Jamaica) to be with her parents in Canada, the USA or England (just a guess!).
She was of very, very fair skin and beautiful. Alberta Harris was also beautiful.
I am not sure that you can help, but at a minimum, you might be able to find out whether St George's Girls School has "morphed" into a school by another name!
You can contact me at Gus
Thank you very much in advance for your help,
