JAMAICA COLLEGE- Academic Year: 2021-2022

Jamaica College believes that extra-curricular activities are an integral part of the school’s programs. We encourage all students to take advantage of the opportunity provided to participate in one or more of the extra-curricular activities provided by the school. We firmly believe that through participation in extra-curricular activities young people may gain experiences which will give each and every one of them the opportunity to develop the skills and values needed to become a valued student within the school community.
