SAINT LUCY SECONDARY SCHOOL is no more.
With the lowering of one flag and the raising of another, the lone secondary school in the island’s northernmost parish changed its name to the Daryll Jordan Secondary School, after a long celebratory double-naming ceremony in its auditorium yesterday.
To the tune of the military Last Post played by the Cadet Band, Jordan, the school’s first headmaster, watched the institution he led from 1971 to 1995 immortalize him on a steaming hot afternoon, minutes before the school’s new hall also took on the names of two other northern stalwarts: the late Esbon Ifill and Amory Phillips.
