10 years of ex­cel­lence

Jamaica Gleaner - - INTERNATIONAL NEWS -

TROY HIGH School was com­mis­sioned in 2007 un­der the North-Western School Pro­gramme. Since its com­mis­sion­ing, the school has led the way in dis­pelling the stereo­type that non-tra­di­tional high schools will in­vari­ably per­form be­low tra­di­tional high schools.

I must take this op­por­tu­nity to com­mend the ad­min­is­tra­tion and its teach­ers for their ef­forts and ded­i­ca­tion in en­sur­ing that the lit­er­acy and nu­mer­acy lev­els of the stu­dent are dra­mat­i­cally im­proved from their start­ing point. This is ev­i­dent in the per­for­mance at the CSEC level.

The school main­tains a cov­eted po­si­tion in sports and is highly sought af­ter by stu­dents as a pre­ferred in­sti­tu­tion of choice.

The school has em­barked on a holis­tic ap­proach in its train­ing pro­gramme and have recorded ex­cel­lent per­for­mances in the cre­ative and per­form­ing arts.

Troy High School is not only a top con­tender in the Ja­maica Cul­tural Devel­op­ment Com­mis­sion (JCDC) na­tional com­pe­ti­tion de­signed for high school, but it is in fact among the top re­cip­i­ents of JCDC awards at the parish level.

The lead­er­ship of the Trelawny Mu­nic­i­pal Cor­po­ra­tion, on be­half of the peo­ple of Trelawny, of­fers our warm­est and deep­est con­grat­u­la­tions to this im­por­tant and sig­nif­i­cant in­sti­tu­tion, as they cel­e­brate 10 years of ex­cel­lence.
