Jamaica College Sixth-Form Block Gets $10-m Makeover

Written by ruth on . Posted in General, News, Old Boys

Sixth-form students at the prestigious all-boys” institution, Jamaica College (JC), are now smiling from ear to ear following a multimillion-dollar donation that saw the complete makeover of the institution”s sixth-form block.

The money was a gift from Tara Abrahams-Clivio and Jason Abrahams in memory of their late father, Eric Anthony Abrahams. A former politician and broadcast journalist, Eric Anthony Abrahams has been recognised as one of the many brilliant minds who passed through the halls of Jamaica College.

The project, completed last year, saw extensive upgrading work carried out to the infrastructure of the block. This included new furniture, the painting of walls, repairs to flooring, new fans, and the installation of both wired and wireless Internet service. Laptops and desktop computers – for use by both students and staff – were also purchased.

The sixth-form block was also named in honour of the late Abrahams.


A worthwhile investment

Addressing the dedication ceremony for the building on Wednesday, principal, Ruel Reid, described it as a worthwhile investment for the school and the future of Jamaica. He said the sixth-form block now serves as a model to which students in the lower school could aspire.

“We can hold it up bet online casinos with pride and say to all of you “This is sixth form. This is the best sixth form in Jamaica,” then all the other students will aspire to become sixth-formers. They will display those characteristics of leadership and excellence that all schools demand.

“This is an investment, and in spite of some of the negatives that are attached to Jamaica, certainly, as your principal and someone that has worked with you, I am so positive, so confident that we can inspire them to be the next generation of leaders that will take the baton and not only complete the transformation of Jamaica College, but indeed, transform this country,” Reid said.

Adding that he was “very happy” that an agreement had been forged to undertake the transformation of the block, Reid

assured the son and daughter of the late Abrahams that their father would have been satisfied “with the choice of your project and the strategic objective of why we chose the sixth-form block”.

He gave the commitment that he and his staff would honour the contribution.

President of the JC Old Boys Association, Christopher Williams, in thanking the family for its contribution, said: “What we have in the investment from the Abrahams family is something that will be teaching our children to think for themselves.”

Jason Abrahams, in his address to the audience, encouraged educators at the institution to use the donation “to craft men of vision and reason”.

He added: “I ask on behalf of my father that you teach your charges to think for themselves, to arrive at their own conclusions.

“To the students, Tara and I only ask that you never stop questioning, never stop seeking answers, never accept the status quo. JC is a school that has a history of demanding more from its students, a place of education where students, in turn, demand more of their school. We ask that you all demand more of yourselves, of your leaders, and of your country,” he said.
