Pearline Louise Kentish
February 15 1953 ~ January 19 2003

"Precious" was the founder of the Longbay Parent-Teachers Association. The sister of Opel Kentish, and mother of Crystal Reid, Precious was an enthusiastic supporter of Haile High. She will be surely missed by all who knew her. Jah Bless Sister Precious!

Apple and Barrington have elected to have their portraits made in profile.

"Monkey Man", Haile High's mascot clutches his Indian kutchi. Born in China, Monkey Man has traveled three times to Los Angeles, California and is a regular visitor to Doctor's Cave Beach...much to the delight of our students.

A new office for Haile High's Director of Curriculum takes shape at the Menelik Computer Lab. The classes are taught on lap-tops which are donated by the school's friends from abroad. All other materials are purchased in Jamaica. The school's operation is supported by meager, yet effective private funding. No tuition is charged. The students have the option to stay-on, sharpening their skills, while teaching new students.
