our mission

The Glenmuir High School Past Students Association (UK) Chapter is part of the Glenmuir High School international alumni association. Our mission is to engage with alumni past and present across the United Kingdom and continue to support our beloved alma mater Glenmuir High in Jamaica as well as students continuing their studies in tertiary institutions in the UK.

GHSpsa (UK) chapter President Kerry Ganna - 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!

Both teams worked well together on Saturday and have subsequently forged a partnership that will see us working together at the international level. Our vision is to not only be the best Robotics team in the Region but winners of international competitions.
