Welcome to Windward Primary School. Thanks go to
Cindy Fletcher and Roxanne Pollydone for letting us visit the school.
that is cool!
The Windward Pre-Primary school is located in the fishing village
of Windward situated to the north eastern side of the island.
This village is also well known for it's many boat builders.Our
ancestors came from Scotland hence the reason why there are so many
Mc's living in this village.
The Windward Pre-school was housed in a private dwelling for over
20 years,a very concern and generous citizen living in London gave
his house freely to be used as the school.
Pam school was called so because of the teacher Ms. Pamella McFarlane.She
was followed by many others after she migrated to the US.Mrs.Corine
McDonald,Carmen McLawrence,Yevonne McLawrence and Rholda Quminer.
However,after many years of waiting,the Government of Grenada started
our very own school but could not be completed.The P.T.A and some
concern citizens started to work out a plan and every possible event
was held to raise much needed funds to ensure that the Windward Pre
school becomes a reality.
Finally in January 1996 the Windward Pre-School unfinished but open
it's doors .
to the Government of Grenada,the business sector,community of Windward and
