There’s a new principal at the helm of the Barbados Community College.

She is Annette Alleyne, a Barbadian educator with over 30 years’ experience at the tertiary and secondary levels.

Alleyne took up her new duties on May 3, this year, and is now leading the oldest community college in the region.

She holds a Masters in Education from Miami University; a Diploma in Education (Dist.) from the University of the West Indies (UWI), Cave Hill; and a BSc. in Chemistry and Biology (Hons), from UWI, Cave Hill.

For the past 19 years, she has been part of the faculty of the BCC, where she served as a Chemistry Tutor; Chemistry Coordinator, Tutor 1; and more recently, Senior Tutor in the Division of Science.

Alleyne spearheaded a number of fund-raising initiatives, as well as innovative practices in the delivery of science education, infused with an interdisciplinary approach to learning.

Prior to joining the Barbados Community College, she taught at Queen’s College and at a secondary school in Bermuda, where she also served as Vice President of the West Indian Association of Bermuda.

Alleyne believes that varied interests and competence in a range of

disciplines fuel a creative approach to problem-solving. She is the author of textbooks in Chemistry; has acted as both examiner and assistant examiner for the Caribbean Examinations Council (CXC), and also served as a member of the Regional Review Panel for CXC Chemistry.

Alleyne has also authored children’s storybooks and has been the writer, producer and director of stage plays, screen plays, skits, sketches and monologues, which have won national awards, inclusive of a NIFCA gold award for film.

She is currently the director of the multimedia production company GR8T GIRL, and has been an administrator for a number of associations and enterprises in the performing arts, sports and tourism. (BGIS)
