GHSpsa (UK) chapter President
Kerry badaloo - in her own words...
As the GHSPSA (UK) Chapter President, may I welcome you to our online space. Since 2010, a small group of alumni here in the UK would meet up and subsequently decided to formalise links with our alma mater Glenmuir High School in Jamaica. I am particularly proud of the fact that the UK membership conceived and initiated the GHS Breakfast Programme project back in 2017 which has since proven to be of immense benefit to disadvantaged students. We have joined forces with the other GHS Alumni Associations and together we have been able to complete and dedicate the Dr. Sydney Scott Auditorium. 2020 has brought the worldwide pandemic of Covid-19. Nevertheless, we were able to answer Principal Dr. Marsha Smalling's call for assistance with learning resources and personal protective equipment for the staff members. Going forward, we will continue to strive to increase our membership as well as assist our school. The fire still burns - here in the UK!
