Mount St. Joseph Catholic High School
82 Manchester Road, Mandeville, Manchester, Jamaica, W.I.
One hundred and eighty successful GSAT applicants became a part of history on Monday, September 1, 2014 when they started classes at the new Mount St. Joseph Catholic High School (MSJCHS) in Mandeville. The grant-aided, denominational high school is a collaborative effort between the Catholic Diocese of Mandeville, the Sisters of Mercy, and the Ministry of Education, to address the deficit of quality secondary school places in the parish.
As chaplain, Sr. Jane Nesmith is in charge of the spiritual aspect of the high school, supervising devotion and liturgy practices, and ensuring that the children participate in such seasonal practices as the Stations of the Cross. She also teaches a class in Christian Living to all seventh grade students.
