A pil­lar of strength

Jamaica Gleaner - - 40TH ANNIVERSARY -

... the school has been a pil­lar of strength serv­ing the peo­ple and ed­u­ca­tional needs of our coun­try, and west­ern ja­maica...

IT IS a spe­cial plea­sure for me to join Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School in cel­e­brat­ing the mo­men­tous mile­stone of your 40th an­niver­sary as a sec­ondary in­sti­tu­tion of­fer­ing high-school ed­u­ca­tion of the high­est qual­ity to the youth of West­ern Ja­maica. I am proud to have been a mem­ber of the ad­min­is­tra­tion that built Her­bert Mor­ri­son High as part of one of the most mas­sive pro­grammes of ed­u­ca­tion expansion ever un­der­taken in Ja­maica.

This in­sti­tu­tion was cre­ated with the ob­jec­tive of ex­cel­lence in mind. It was in­tended to harness, mould and un­leash the tal­ents of our youth for their to­tal de­vel­op­ment and con­tri­bu­tion to their com­mu­ni­ties and coun­try. I am pleased to see that the school is in fact well on its way to ful­fill­ing this mis­sion.

MOST SOUGHT AF­TER

The in­tro­duc­tion over the years of var­i­ous pro­grammes of sci­en­tific, tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional stud­ies has made Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal one of the best and most sought-af­ter sec­ondary in­sti­tu­tions in Ja­maica.

The stu­dents of this in­sti­tu­tion con­tinue to dis­tin­guish them­selves in aca­demics, sports, co-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties and ar­eas of tech­ni­cal skills. Your grad­u­ates are lead­ers and achiev­ers in var­i­ous vi­tal ar­eas of life in Ja­maica and nu­mer­ous other coun­tries around the world. In these way and more, the school has been a pil­lar of strength serv­ing the peo­ple and ed­u­ca­tional needs of our coun­try, and west­ern Ja­maica in par­tic­u­lar, for 40 years. This is a proud record with which the en­tire Her­bert Mor­ri­son High fam­ily can be pleased.

CUL­TURE OF EX­CEL­LENCE

I of­fer sin­cere con­grat­u­la­tions to the board of man­age­ment, prin­ci­pal, staff and stu­dents of Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School as you cel­e­brate your strength and per­se­ver­ance in pro­mot­ing a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence for 40 years. I also salute for­mer prin­ci­pals, past board mem­bers, ex-staff and alumni who have con­trib­uted in very spe­cial ways to growth and de­vel­op­ment of the school.

Con­grat­u­la­tions and best wishes. POR­TIA SIMP­SON MILLER Leader of the Op­po­si­tion
