Principal of Herbert Morrison Technical High School in Montego Bay, Paul Adams, says the institution will launch its 2016-2021 development plan later this year, to take the teaching-learning process to another dimension.

Speaking to JIS News, Mr. Adams said the launch of the plan forms a major part of the school’s 40th anniversary celebration activities, to be held during the week of November 20 to 26.

He said the launch will be held during an event entitled, ‘Roll of Honour’, where outstanding students of the school, past and present, will be recognised.

“We are going to look at where Herbert Morrison is going. It is very important for persons to hear about our 2016/2021 plan, after seeing our achievements from 1976 to 2016,” Mr. Adams said.

He pointed out that after 40 years and the many  accomplishments of the school, its leaders and students, the stage is set for a week of activities, which will bring together most of those who would have passed through the institution.

Activities to mark the 40th anniversary include a church service to be followed by a day under the theme: ‘Celebrating our Curriculum’,  in which members of the public will be allowed to visit the school to observe the teaching-learning process.

The week’s celebrations will come to an end on Saturday, November 26, in a grand ball entitled: ‘Celebrating Under the Stars’. Except for the church service, all events are set to take place on the school grounds.

Herbert Morrison Technical High School was opened in 1976. Back then, it was known as Herbert Morrison Comprehensive High School, until in the mid 1980s, when  the name was changed.

The institution was named after one of Montego Bay’s most prominent sons, the late Dr. Herbert Morrison, and opened under the leadership of Lloyd Whinstanley, who served from 1976 until his retirement in 1999.
