From as early as 1864, the concept of the Building Society was introduced to Jamaica to assist working and middle class people to realize their dream to own their own homes. I n the ensuing years, a number of Building Societies sprung to life and in the year 1865, an Act for the Regulation and Encouragement of Benefit Building Societies was passed.

The Jamaica National Building Society (JNBS) is the product of a series of mergers pioneered by the Westmoreland Building Society. Today, Jamaica National is ranked among Jamaica’s largest financial institutions offering a blend of financial services and mortgage plans to customers living in Jamaica, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada and The Cayman Islands.

In this article, we trace its roots, beginning with the Westmoreland Building Society from which it evolved. On Thursday, August 13, 1874, the Westmoreland Building Society held its first Directors’ Meeting. The Reverend Henry Clarke, Founder and first Chairman, presided. In 1967, the Society entered a period of expansion by absorbing the Manchester Mutual Benefit Society, building new offices in Savanna-la-Mar and establishing branches in Santa Cruz, Mandeville, May Pen and Kingston, linking them all by radiotelephone.

The Westmoreland Building Society stands as a pioneer in Building Society mergers in Jamaica, beginning with its merger with the Manchester Mutual, and followed by its merge with the St. James Benefit, the St. Ann Benefit and the Brown’s Town Benefit Building Societies.

The St. James Benefit Building Society, founded in 1874 but incorporated in 1901, began modestly as a penny savings bank for members of the congregation of the Reverend Cork, its founder.

The Brown’s Town Benefit Building Society was the “baby” of the merging societies, having been founded only 74 years before in 1896. Its founder, Mr. A. H. Allwood, a solicitor by profession, started the Society with a desk in his own office where people, including little children, encouraged to save, came to deposit their pennies.

Following this early spate of mergers, which culminated in the formation of the JNBS in December 1970, the St. Thomas Mutual Building Society, founded in 1897, formally merged its assets with that of the JNBS in September 1976. The Jamaica Permanent Building Society established in 1878, merged with the JNBS in 1977 and finally in 1983, the St. Mary’s Benefit Building Society established in 1915, merged with the JNBS. The final two acquisitions were Hanover Benefit Building Society in 1996 and Jamaica Savings and Loans Building Society in 2001.

During the past 140 years, steady growth has led the JNBS to be the entity it is today and its success can be attributed to the people of caliber who, over the years, were prepared to see beyond parochialism towards the creation of a Society, better able to compete to fulfill its obligations.

Over twenty years ago, the Meadowbrook congregation of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands, envisaged the need for the acquisition of a burial site outside of the congested Kingston Metropolitan region. This vision was later embraced by the entire Untied Church and culminated in 1994 with the establishment of Meadowrest Memorial Gardens –a project which is owned and continues to be operated by the United Church.

The Gardens are located in the Red Pond/Frasers Content/Whittaker’s Mountain area, off the St. John’s road in St. Catherine on 55 acres of rolling countryside of natural beauty, in rustic but easily accessible terrane. The business office is approximately situated in the building which houses the Synod Administrative Office of the United Church at 12 Carlton Crescent, Kingston and in the same general compound as Webster Memorial United Church.

Available to persons of all denominations and the general public, the facilities include single and double vaults as well as urn vaults for the in-earth interment of ashes. A modern spacious chapel with a capacity of over 200 provides the option for persons interring the remains of loved ones in the Gardens of holding funeral/thanksgiving services in close proximity to the place of interment.

Meadowrest provides Internment Data Cards to bereaved families to assist in identifying the specific vaults in which loved ones are interred. There is in operation a referral service for the provision of Grief Counselling and a newsletter “The Caregiver” is published quarterly. In addition, the Annual Memorial Service held in the Chapel on the third Sunday in November and the Annual Funeral Directors’ Appreciation Function held in April each year are an integral part of the calendar of the Gardens.

Meadowrest Memorial Gardens has an unswerving commitment to:-
(a) Serve clients in a sensitive, caring and comforting setting through highly motivated professional personnel
(b) Develop and maintain the Gardens and related services at the highest possible standards
(c) Ensure viability of the project and integrity in all aspects of its operations in keeping with the tenets of the United Church in Jamaica and the Cayman Islands.

St. Joseph's Teachers' College is a Roman Catholic teacher training college in Kingston, Jamaica. It was founded in 1897 by the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany a religious orde r for women in the Roman Catholic Church in Jamaica.

To all our readers, St. Joseph’s Teachers’ College (SJTC) welcomes you to our new website. It is our hope that you will use this medium to learn more about our college and that it will provide you with another career choice with a difference. St. Joseph’s Teachers’ College is a Catholic institution that has been in existence for over 116 years. Its early beginnings are grounded in Christian values based on Franciscan tradition through the life and work of the Franciscan Sisters of Allegany. This background forms the ethos of the college to this day

The college is firmly established
and through its vision, mission, and core values it will continue to be unwavering despite much public discussion about teacher quality and oversupply of teachers in the Jamaican workforce. SJTC remains encouraged even when we are experiencing low intake of students for this academic year. This challenge is not unique to SJTC because another teacher-training institutions are experiencing a similar dilemma
while at the same time, other institutions of learning are having a low student intake for this year because of serious financial challenges.

At SJTC, we are of the view that through challenges of this nature
and otherwise, we will continue to be resilient with strong hope. Since our founding in 1897, we have weathered the “storms”. Now, it is safe to say that standing on the threshold and in moving forward, we will become even stronger, more relevant, and more effective in these times when education institutions are constantly being called upon to provide quality education. Therefore, in my view, quality education must be strongly aligned with quality teachers along with the values that tightly underpin such status.

Each year, SJTC continues to increase and enhance the teaching profession by adding some of Jamaica’s best professionals. In order to achieve such a task, SJTC reviews and renews itself and its deliverables so that we remain current and relevant in responding to the needs of our society and even the needs beyond our shores. When prospective teachers come to SJTC, they come because of what they read about the college, what their parents, relatives, friends, and alumni say about the college, all of which provide clear evidence that the good news is out there among the people. SJTC stands tall among the best.

The University of Technology, Jamaica (UTech) dates its beginning from 1958, originally as the Jamaica Institute of Technology. In 1959 the name of the institution was changed to the College of Arts, Science and Technology and it became incorporated in the College of Arts, Science and Technology (CAST) Scheme of 1959. This was validated by an Act of Parliament in 1964. In 1986, the CAST Scheme was revised in order to make the College a degree-granting institution, and the College became legally empowered to conduct its affairs under a governing Council and Academic Board.

The institution was formally accorded University status on September 1, 1995 as the University of Technology, Jamaica. The University of Technology, Jamaica Act 27 - 1999, which makes permanent provisions for the establishment of the University of Technology, Jamaica, was approved by Parliament on June 8, 1999 and signed into law by the Governor General on June 29, 1999.

UTECH has academic offerings, wit h emphasis on flexibility of approach, work-based learning and professional linkages. The Flexibility in UTECH academic offerings is reflected in the various modes of programme delivery, which include full-time and part-time and cooperative work based programmes.

In addition, several programmes are franchised in a number of Community Colleges and most programmes are linked to national and international professional organisations. UTECH has brought hope and a sense of pride to the citizens of Western Jamaica with the advent of the UTECH Western Campus, which has opened its doors at the Trelawny Multipurpose stadium.

On Wednesday, September 7, 2011, UTECH hosted an Opening Ceremony and Information Session at the stadium, which was attended by a large gathering of members of government, civic leaders, educators, students and citizens who came to witness the historic event.
