Teamwork Makes Scott's Hall's Dream Work

Posted on 10/10/2017

"Teamwork makes the dream work," stated principal, Eunice McKenzie, as she relates how Scott's Hall Primary in St Mary pulled itself up from near the bottom of the school effectiveness ranking established by the National Education Inspectorate (NEI). In November 2011, the NEI graded the school's overall effectiveness as unsatisfactory. The chief inspector was very critical of the unsatisfactory quality of the leadership and management of the school, noting that the then principal had "a vision for the future development of the school but did not sufficiently involve all staff in the implementation to make it meaningful."

Reformation - B.B. Coke High School Cuts Shift System, Offers More Subjects And Co-Curricular Activities

Posted on 10/2/2017

These days, the B.B. Coke High School in Junction, St Elizabeth, no longer faces repeated requests for the transfer of students placed there through the Grade Six Achievement Test. That reflects brighter days for the school, which has been turning around its performance and image since receiving a rating of 'unsatisfactory' from the National Education Inspectorate (NEI) in January 2015.
