  • History of School:

     

    The Jordan Hill Presbyterian School was established on April 1st 1873 as a one room building on the Jordan Hill Estate, Princes Town.  The rapid increase in attendance followed by the closure of the estate led to the relocation and rebuilding of the school in 1944 at the present sit – Churkoo Village, Manahambre Road, Princes Town.  The present structure is there sixty-six (66) years old.  The school is located approximately 15 kilometers east of the city of San Fernando and 7 kilometers west of Princes Town.

    Many students are children of farmer workers of Caroni 1975Ltd.  Due to the closure of Caroni 1975 Ltd.  Many parents are unemployed.  About 15% of the parents are professional while the others are mainly primary workers.  Recent surveys conducted by the school revealed a significant number of pupils come from broken homes.

    Over the years the school has performed quite well at the S.E.A. Examinations with a large number being placed at five and seven year schools.

    Sports, especially cricket and athletics, have played a major role in the lives of our children.
