My association with Dunoon Tech

As an athlete of Morant Bay High School in 1979, I remember going to Dunoon at some poit around 1980-81 and loving the fact that the school was new and looked clean and well. I was taken there by the coach of MBHS for what I can't recall.

In later years I went there, around 2000-2001 to observe some of my students training to be P.E. Teachers while I was working at Shortwood Teachers' College in the P.E. Department. I found myself still admiring the school and actually wanted to work there

All the best for the future. Continue to do a great job at shaping a beautiful Jamaica.
