Munro College Jamaica 

Munro College Jamaica stands regal on the slope in the cool hills of Potsdam St Elizabeth known locally as Munro.  It sits on many acres of grounds on the hill with a marvellous view of the Caribbean sea in the distance

In the early 18th century  these lands were donated by a landowner to a trust with instructions that a school should be built for the local “poor children”.  

While a few decades passed before this wish came to fruition, come it did and Munro College has seen many changes over time.

Munro College is a boarding school for boys from secondary up to pre university level.

 Children from all parishes of Jamaica have at one time or another attended Munro College.

There are also children from abroad who are sent to Jamaica to attend Munro College up to pre-university level.

Today, the buildings of Munro College have expanded with modern concrete structures but certain areas of the College still retain their original cut stone style.  In fact, the chapel appears untouched by time and stands resplendent evidencing the original 17th century building style of Munro College.

Munro College is a sought after boarding school for boys, although not all boys who attend are boarders.  It is a delight to meet these young people on my morning walks.   From what I have learned about the reputation of this school, while there have been changes overtime, it is still a sought after institution for secondary school boys.
