Those complexes would be The Blackman and Gollop Primary School, The Grantley Prescod Memorial Primary School and Luther Thorne Memorial Primary School.
The Blackman and Gollop Primary School claimed first place in the ‘Tennis Champions’ punch card promotion by collecting the most completed punch cards during the promotion period.
