Merl Grove High School! It produces conscious LADIES!

by Jean Tinglin Scott
(St Andrew, Jamaica)

The teachers here serve the school long, it does not have a high staff turn over, and they teach good christian values! I attended between 1962-66.

My favourite Head Mistress was Miss Muriel Lynch, who later married named Rackham. She was most thoughtful and caring of the welfare of all students.

Mr Albert Karram was the Chairman of the Board & loved the school & served and supported it faithfully for over 20 years! As soon one project was over, he would ask Miss Lynch, what else does the school need?

We ended up with the first vast auditorium of all schools, and was the first school with a public address system!
