  • History of School:

     

    School’s Establishment:The Jubilee Presbyterian School was established in the year 1918. The school was rebuilt on more than one occasion. In its early establishment it consisted of a two storey wooden structure and originally was two separate buildings with the Infant Department separated from the Standards.

    Early School Days

    The Original Motto of the school was “Deeds not Words”, was subsequently changed to “To the stars through adversity.” Today the school’s motto is “The Journey to the Pathway of Success”.

    Famous Past Pupils

    Some famous personalities who were past students of the school are:

    • Professor John La Guerre ( Past Chairman of the Equal Opportunity Commission)
    • Ramsewak Family
    • Aaliyah Mitchell ( Athletics)

    Religious Individuals

    As an institution that was built on religious beliefs two persons of repute who served the school to conduct worship sessions were Rev. Cyril Paul (deceased) and Rev. E. T. Sieunarine. However, many other ministers and church workers also served in developing the school’s clientele spiritual awareness.

    Early Employment

    The first cleaner employed at the present school site was Mr. Sookram Singh.

    Agriculture in the Community

    From the early 40’s to the late 70’s the community of Guaico Tamana was regarded as the fruit basket of Trinidad & Tobago as it produced large quantities of cocoa, coffee and citrus. More than 50 acres of dasheen and cassava was produced as the Government gave incentives to plant the land. This led to the teak plantation which is the 3rd largest and most productive in the country. Today the community of Guaico Tamana boasts of the famous bat caves, a stone’s throw away from the school’s location.
