The vision of Reverend Cuthbert Edwards, the school opened its doors on August 21, 1999, and welcomed 11 students and four teachers. The total enrollment to date stands at 411.

To kick-start their week of activities, a church service of thanksgiving was held on Sunday at the Methodist Church Hall under the theme: “Ten years of cultivating young minds and still forging ahead”.

At the service, the tiny tots of the pre-school recited bible passages, which heard loud applause from the audience.

Reverend Victor Job delivered the sermon.

On Monday, the children’s artwork was on display. Tuesday was marked as Teachers’ Appreciation Day, while Wednesday was set aside mainly for the parents.

The school made a journey to the Helping Hands Centre in New Montrose.

To top off the week of celebrations, a barbeque was held at the Kingstown Methodist Church grounds.

Circuit Pre-Schools supervisor Clarice Richards, who has been with the school since its inception, said that she is humbled by the fact that they have been able to serve the community for so long. “I feel very proud that we have achieved such a milestone and look forward to serving for much longer by the grace of God,” Richards said.

Awards were also given to persons for their years of service to the school.
