It’s a double Roland Edwards celebration
WITH THE IDYLLIC SETTING of the Sugar Cane Club in Maynards, St Peter, as a backdrop, the management, staff, old scholars and friends of Roland Edwards Primary School gathered earlier this month to mark two special milestones – the 25th anniversary of the school, and the official retirement of early childhood coordinator Sherryl Griffith.
The school, the amalgamation of St Peter’s Girls’ and Speightstown Boys’ School, was officially opened on April 27, 1990, by then Minister of Education
Cyril Walker. It was named in honour of Curtis Van Roland Edwards, a former resident of Speightstown who wrote the music to the National Anthem.
