Multiple groups of senior students bussed in from schools and colleges outside of the capital city, in the last few days of the Spanish Trinidad exhibition at the UWI Museum. Teachers who organised the field trips focused especially on their students of Spanish and history.
Students came from the southern Jamaica parishes of Clarendon, Manchester and St Elizabeth, and from Portland in the north-east. The most senior were students from the College of Agriculture, Science & Education (CASE) in Portland, who paid close attention to the lecture on the special exhibition, given by UWI St Augustine’s Dr Armando Garcia de la Torre, and screened in the museum.
Students from all the schools spent time in the museum’s two exhibitions – Spanish Trinidad, and the on-going exhibition focusing on the Origins of the University of the West Indies.
