Miss Emrie James was the School’s executive administrator for 42 years. She spearheaded many School projects and kept the history of the school high on her agenda. Her dedicated work to ensure the preservation of school documents provided the ‘building blocks’ for the Museum.
Miss James was known for her hard work, creative thinking, determination and the unswerving ability to make the impossible, possible. And so it was that with her inspired help, the archives she had preserved and the determination of Old Girl Margaret Bernal (Reckord) who issued the call for alumnae memorabilia, that the Emrie James Museum opened its doors in April 2011 – Jamaica’s first school museum.
