We are proud of our achieve­ments

Jamaica Gleaner - - 40TH ANNIVERSARY -

THE HER­BERT Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School fam­ily beams with pride in cel­e­brat­ing 40 years of pro­vid­ing qual­ity sec­ondary ed­u­ca­tion to the na­tion’s chil­dren, par­tic­u­larly those in west­ern Ja­maica.

Our four decades of success speaks vol­umes in sports, cul­ture, aca­demics, tech­ni­cal and vo­ca­tional ed­u­ca­tion, mu­sic and stu­dent lead­er­ship.

The first prin­ci­pal, Mr J. Lloyd Whin­stan­ley, a most in­sight­ful ed­u­ca­tor, con­cre­tised the foun­da­tion in the

schools motto ‘Strength and Per­se­ver­ance’ on which we pro­mote a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence. Hence our theme for the cel­e­bra­tion, ‘Cel­e­brat­ing our Strength and Per­se­ver­ance in Pro­mot­ing a Cul­ture of Ex­cel­lence’.

Her­bert Mor­ri­son Tech­ni­cal High School, through its cur­ricu­lum of­fer­ings, is the ‘Home of sci­ence tech­nol­ogy and tech­ni­cal vo­ca­tional Ed­u­ca­tion’. We are un­de­ni­ably the lead­ing tech­ni­cal high school in Ja­maica with per­for­mance which puts us among the top­per­form­ing sec­ondary schools in Ja­maica.

As we cel­e­brate, we are aware of our recog­ni­tion and achieve­ments, but will also ap­pre­ci­ate that con­ti­nu­ity and growth are im­por­tant for sus­tained success. We face the next decade aware of our mis­sion and man­date to give each child an ex­cel­lent chance at ac­cess­ing qual­ity ed­u­ca­tion.

May God con­tinue to give us the strength and per­se­ver­ance as we con­tinue to pro­mote a cul­ture of ex­cel­lence. PAUL ADAMS Prin­ci­pal
