So I made it to Mobay early this morning on good old Knutsford Express. Travelled leisurely down and back..
The staff had to attend the expo at Montego Bay Community College, so I had a busy tour in the office minus admin staff.
It was a riot! And a hoot. Parents and students were delightful. However, under new management and staff, Mrs. Meggo and Ms. Reid ( do send pictures, guys), Montego Bay has asked for their own group chat. It is confirmed, the Kingston group chat is disconcerting. Too busy, they claim!
Education USA came, went....do note the other schools en route to Jamaica. Important to see them. We applaud those who made Selkirk College last Saturday.....good for Music and Technology, Performing Arts. Location: Vancouver, Canada.
The school and college visits have started. My recent tour secured 75 new boarding schools and fifteen universities.
For the boarding schools I will be putting up the list of schools at the Kingston and Montego Bay offices so parents and students can come and look at the new schools and do some research.
Likewise for the universities in Amsterdam, London, Switzerland and Germany.
Current School Visits:
The upcoming Boarding School Fair is to be held in Kingston and Montego Bay on November 16 and 17. The first at Stella Maris Auditorium and the second at Hilton Rose Hall Resort. Please note this is solely for ages 12-16.
Selkirk College from British Columbia will be giving a talk at 6:30 p.m. this Saturday at the Kingston office.
Education USA Fair will be held at The Pegasus Hot...
Folks, I am still reeling from all the ups and downs, schlepping across five territories, looking at schools over a 14 day trial: Germany, Amsterdam, Zurich, London, Toronto...in the crosshairs....
What I do know is that I have a bag of goodies, with new schools all tucked away behind my desk. I promise after I have uploaded a ton load of transcripts, I will get to those schools and post the list.
So many insights, so many new avenues...
So while you all have a great weekend, hopefully completing applications, financial aid, et al....I will rebound and have a list ready for posting here and on Whatsapp.
My green card holders and US citizens need to complete their FAFSA and CSS Profile financial aid forms now.
My Jamaican students must do their International Student Financial Aid forms as well...
