Heritage Week 2006
"Jamaica Then and Now"




Our Heritage Week celebrations got off to a rousing start at the
whole-school Assembly on Monday 9th October. Although
it was a tight squeeze to fit everybody into the Hall, we all
thoroughly enjoyed the programme, from the very youngest
Kindergarten child right up to our Sixth Form students.

We were reminded of 'Jamaica Then' with a sparkling selection of
folk songs performed by the Jamaica Folk Singers. These outstanding
performers received thunderous applause from a most appreciative
audience.

We were brought up-to-date with 'Jamaica Now' by Matthew
Williams (Grade 6) and his 'Welcome to Jamrock', while the
winner of Mrs. Lee's Spot Prize for Heritage Knowledge won
a Bob Marley beach towel.

The High School concert started with the dramatized story of Sam
Sharpe retold by the Upper School and Sixth Form. We were entertained
in verse, dance and drumming both by visiting performers and by our
own very talented students. Although the emphasis of the concert was on
our Jamaican roots and heritage, we were reminded once again of '
Jamaica Now' with the ever-popular fashion show, staged by our own
High School 'models'.
Heritage Week continues with debating, Field Trips and class-based
activities, culminating on Friday 13th with our Food Fair and Artisan
Exhibition.
