Hampden Community Outreach

Hampden has a long history of providing employment and of supporting the various communities in Trelawny. I had mentioned in an earlier blog post that Hampden donated lands for the building of the Hampden Primary and Infant School as well as the Muschett High School (founded in 1969) in Wakefield, Trelawny.   As you may also recall in earlier posts,  both Hampden and Long Pond Sugar Estate are owned and operated by Everglades Farms Ltd.  which is also involved in a number of community outreach programs in Clarks Town and surrounding districts.
This commitment continues and recently we were asked to assist in the expansion of the Muschett High School  (MHC) parking lot. Mr. Allan Milbourn of Everglades Farms spearheaded this effort and we are pleased that  it was completed and is now in operation. We would like to thank Mr. Leighton Johnson Principal (MHC) for his letter of gratitude.

We are also pleased to highlight Hampden Primary and Infant School recent accomplishments

Hampden Retain Library Quiz Title

Like they did last, Hampden Primary and Infant School emerged as a shining example of excellence in the 2015 Trelawny Caribbean Library Quiz Competition when they once again copped the coveted title.

Led by captain Brianna Foster, the Hampden team, which also featured Jade Henry, Patrice Brown, Shamoya Black, and Delon Smith, proved too strong for the other competing schools in the annual competition, comfortably duplicating their 2014 effort.

"It has been great! It is unexplainable! Every moment I have spent with this team has been just wonderful!" said 12-year-old Foster in relating her experience in this year's competition. "At first, I felt nervous because I knew everyone was depending on me to do my best. When we won, I felt elated! I was just so happy."

Go Hampden!
