Jamaica School Resources

UK supported fund raising charity for school equipment.

Jamaica and Great Britain have much in common as well as having a shared history there are many cultural, political and trade links between the two countries.

Although initially prosperous after independence several unforeseen events in the 1980s affected the economy of Jamaica from which it has been difficult to recover. The reduced gross national product has led to a strain on the financial resources available for critical services such as education.

Jamaica School Resources is a charitable, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to supplying much needed equipment to Jamaican Schools, through British based organisations, groups, businesses and individuals.

Thank you all, for your continuing support for Jamaica School Resources.

We have been asked by the Ministry of Education in Jamaica to support literacy and numeracy in the Schools in the Parish of Hanover, Jamaica, where many of the pupils’ achievement in these subjects is below the national average. The schools that need the support are:

  • Chambers Pen Primary
  • St. Simon Church Hill primary
  • Cove Primary
  • Middlesex Corner Primary
  • Clifton Primary
  • Pell River Primary

Your practical support, including your donation for books and other resources, will be very helpful to ensure the project succeeds. (Kingston bookshop is the supplier of the books that are most appropriate for the needs of the identified Schools).

I also need you help as an ambassador for JSR. You may have contacts with one or more UK primary schools, either as a parent, grandparent, and governor or in a professional role. May I prevail on your good will and commitment to JSR and request that you approach any school that you believe would be interested in twinning with one of the schools in this project?

If your enquiries are received with interest, please contact me by email with the name of the school, the address and the name of the head teacher or principal and I will follow up.

Yours sincerely
Douglas Morgan
Secretary Jamaica School Resources

The following schools are involved in the second phase.

Name of School Parish
Ferris Primary Westmoreland
Haddo Primary and Infant Westmoreland
Inverness Primary St. Ann
Lower Buxton St. Ann
Central Branch Primary Kingston
Richmond Park Primary Clarendon

A big thank you to Delwyn Gordon in Jamaica who has dedicated his time to contacting a number of School's principals to participate in the Voucher scheme.

This is very difficult and time consuming task to coordinate. Firstly the Principals are contacted to identify pupil/s in their School needing essential support and then to contact the parents of the children involved. The Principals then have to work towards engaging their local shop owners to exchange food for the voucher/s. A big thank you to all involved.

I will let you know the outcome of the second phase when we have achieve our goal.

Our task is to support families and make Children 'lives better'.

Please direct Family and Friends to our website.
