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!

LABOR OMNIA VINCIT!!!

Merle Grove High School NEW
by: sandra redwood

I too loved Miss Lynch, Miss Hewitt and Mr Paisley. It was so wonderful to see a post on my old school and teachers who was still in my heart although their names had sled into the recesses of my memory. I was also totally in love with Mrs.Barrows. I think that was her name, maybe someone seeing this can help. LABOR OMNI VINCI
Labor conquers all. Indeed.

I was student from 1962 through 1965. My favorite teachers were Mrs. Martin, Mrs.. Grant and ms. HEwitt. Ms. HEwitt thought us manners and to be ladies. Mr. Passley. All my teachers were great. I received a great education
