The Luther Thorne Memorial Primary School, at Wildey, St. Michael, will celebrate its 35th Anniversary next Tuesday, December 4, by staging a re-enactment of the school’s history.
The event will take place at 8:45 a.m. during morning assembly. It is meant to give both the student body and guests a glimpse into the developments which have helped to make the school the institution that it is today.
Luther Thorne Memorial Primary School was officially opened on December 3, 1983, by Dame Billie Miller, who was the Minister of Education at that time. It is named after Luther Thorne (1899-1976), one of the nation’s outstanding educators, who went on to become a Minister of Education.
Specially invited guests will include representatives of the Ministry of Education, Dame Billie, and a representative of the family of Luther Thorne. Former head teachers, staff and past students are expected to attend, along with representatives of the school’s parent-teacher association.
