The Daryll Jordan Secondary School has embarked on a number of initiatives aimed at reversing the decline in the number of students attending the institution.
Word of this from Chairman of the school’s board of management, Peirson Springer, who explains the student complement has gone from over 1100 to just about 500 in recent years.
Speaking during a ceremony to mark the school’s 49th anniversary, Mr. Springer outlined strategies to put the school front of mind.
Among them the renaming of the school’s pavilion in honour of past students and former West Indies cricketers Vasbert Drakes and Ryan Hurley.
Acting Principal, Cheryl Gill, says the tradition of excellence continues with the school’s current students.
