The Kingston Bookshop was pleased once again to salute teachers in a series of luncheons across the island...

Teachers’ Days went off with a bang on Monday, May 2 in Montego Bay. That was followed by Mandeville and culminated with Kingston on Teachers’ Day, Wednesday, May 4.

This annual activity is gaining in momentum. Thanks to the JTA team headed by Secretary General Dr Adolphe Cameron, we had six outstanding teachers on our honour roll. The list included two former JTA presidents – Mr Ray Howell, principal of the Drews Avenue Primary School (Eastern region) and Mr Byron Farquharson, principal of the Mandeville Primary & Junior High School (Central Region). Mr Farquharson is president of the Caribbean Teachers Association.

Other awardees were: Mrs Margaret Waugh Lee and Mr Altiman Haughton, principals of the William Knibb High School and New Hope Primary & Junior High School (North-Western Region) respectively; Dr Polly Bowes Howell, principal of the Stony Hill Primary & Junior High School (Eastern Region) and Mrs Elvris Hewitt Buckle, principal of the Knox Community College (Central Region).
Our guest speakers were all well-known Jamaicans who are positive contributors to our nation. They were the Most Hon Edward Seaga, Distinguished Fellow in the School of Graduate Studies & Research, UWI (Kingston); the Rev Oliver Daley, Pastor of the Ridgemount United Church (Mandeville) and Mr Ruel Reid, President-Elect of the JTA (Montego Bay).

The programmes were interestingly drawn together by chairpersons Ms Fae Ellington (Kingston), Rev Wayne Vernon (Mandeville) and Mr Ray Howard (Montego Bay).

Other contributors to the programme included managing director Mr Steadman Fuller, Director of Administration, Mrs Sonia Fuller, members of the management team and the general staff.

The functions were well attended and expressions of appreciation were offered to the company.
