With only 105 first form students and a faculty of four Jesuit Fathers, Campion College opened its doors on January 5, 1960 and the first lessons were given that day in a pavi lion and in classrooms borrowed from Campion Hall Preparatory School. Campion Hall Prep had been founded in January 1940 when Rt. Reverend Thomas A. Emmet, S.J., D.D., was Vicar Apostolic of Jamaica and V. Reverend Thomas J. Feeney, S.J. was uperior.It began on the premises of St. George’s College but moved to Roslyn Hall (now known as Campion Hall) at 115 Old Hope Road on January 6, 1942.

To make room for the growing needs of Campion College, the prep school graduated its last class in December 1962, just as twenty-two years earlier it had taken in its first students to supply the needs of St. George’s College.

In just over 50 years, Campion has become the premier high school in the island with over 1400 students. Some of the highlights in the history of the school include:
• The addition of a 6th form programme in 1967
• The transition from a private school to a grant-aided, coeducational public school in 1976
• The school’s outstanding academic record, which has resulted in its awards for Top CSEC & CAPE School based on its examination results over several years
• The numerous national and international awards and scholarships its graduates have received including 14 Rhodes Scholarships.

True to its Jesuit identity, the school’s mission is to create “men and women for others” by forming graduates who are “intellectually competent, open to growth, religious, loving and committed to justice.” To that end, the school has a rigorous academic curriculum as well as a carefully designed, expansive co-curricular programme for character formation. This co-curricular programme includes some 40 clubs and 15 sports and features service clubs which range from the Interact and Key Club, to the Ministry Outreach (which visits children and senior homes weekly), to the Champ ions Homework Club, whereby Campion students tutor children from the inner-city community of nearby Chamber’s Lane.

CAMPION & THE SOCIETY OF JESUS
Not only did the Society establish the school, but its Jesuit Fathers also served as members of staff, encouraging willing young minds in all aspects of learning, and laying foundations in religion, the arts, and science.

Jesuits who have served at Campion College over the years include: Archbishop Samuel Carter (First Headmaster, 1960- 1964), Fr. William Raftery, Fr. John Dorsey, Fr. Farrell, Fr. Ashe, Fr. Coleman, Fr. Ruddy, Fr. Delaney, Br. Clarke, Fr. Bowman, Fr. Reil, Fr. Barry, Fr. Krim, Fr. Macmillan and Fr. Cowley.

Today, Fr. Joseph MacWade, Fr. Con Mulvihill and the Chairman of the School Board, Fr. Peter McIsaac, continue the tradition of Jesuit service to the school.

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 Jamaican€™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
