Queen’s College Association 2010 Annual General Meeting Results
The 2010 Annual General Meeting of the Queen’s College Association was held on January 30, in the School’s Lecture Theatre, Husbands, St. James. While the election of the 2010 Executive Committee was an important part of the agenda, the attendees were pleased to hear from principal Dr. David Browne as he gave a detailed account of the school’s activities and achievements during the 2008-2009 school year.
Dr. Browne drew attention to the excellent scholastic results, including a record number of Barbados Scholarship and Exhibition winners. Queen’s College also performed at a very high level in various sporting disciplines, despite being somewhat hampered by the lack of a sports pavilion. Mention was also made of the Queen’s College Strategic Plan 2009-2014, and the Report of the Teachers’ Professional Day 2009, with the theme: Critical Thinking and Problem Solving.
Other highlights of the meeting included the election of a new Executive Committee. This comprises the following posts and officers:
|Vice President||Annette Beckett|
|Hon. Secretary||Gayle Drakes|
|Assistant Secretary||Nancii Yearwood|
|Hon. Treasurer||Donnya Piggott|
|Committee Member||Sherry Cumberbatch|
|Committee Member||Dionne Knight|
|Committee Member||Patricia Wickham|
|Committee Member||Cheryl Yearwood|
|Staff Representative||Alison Baptiste|
|Immediate Past President||J. E. Michael Hinds|
Newly re-elected President Mary Hope led a spirited and wide-ranging discussion of plans to raise funds for the much needed sports pavilion, increasing the membership of the QCA, the possibility of creating a discount card for members, and ways of helping the school achieve its various goals.
