We remember with fondness Mrs. Daphne Titus, the grand dame of Home Economics who taught many of us to cook, bake and the essential life skills. Mrs Titus, who recently passed, taught at St Andrew High for 17 years (1964-1981) which included a short spell as an English teacher.
Our condolences go to the Titus family.
A service of Thanksgiving will be held on Thursday, May 18, 2017 at 11am in the University Chapel, Mona. Please wear cheerful colours. In lieu of flowers donations will be accepted for the Promise Learning Centre.
Home economics, craft and commercial were introduced into the school’s curriculum in 1957 when Mary Dawson was headmistress. Today Home Economics is known as Food and Nutrition and is taught along with art, craft, food and nutrition, clothing and textiles, computer science and business education, in the three-storey M. Joan Reader Vocational Block constructed in 1988.
