The Covid Pandemic has forced a significant portion of education delivery to go virtual. This drastic change has brought on great challenges in the delivery of quality education. In meeting these challenges, students at Munro College were beneficiaries of tablets and computers compliments of the Old Boys in May, 2020. This was one of the earliest donations for any high school in Jamaica. However, Munro inadequate internet services predating the pandemic due to its geographic location and the consequent costs to provide the required service.
Located near Malvern, St. Elizabeth, Munro College is in an area of low rainfall and the school’s layout was originally designed back in the 1860’s to be self-sufficient using RWH. The school managed well into the 1970’s with 400 students on roll. As the school population increased so did the water supply from the NWC. Today with 1054 students, the average water bill is approximately $300,000.00 per month.
