In August of 1998 some former students of what used to be called Carmel Primary School held a reunion in their hometown of Carmel, Westmoreland, in Jamaica. The event was moving on many levels along with nostalgia, much good natured fellowship was experienced by those who were fortunate enough to attend. Childhood friends met again after years of separation. The sounds of music and laughter filled the air. As the saying goes, “A Good Time Was Had By All.” However many of the alumni’s were distressed at the learning conditions we found at our old school. Teachers contend with poor lighting and a lack of educational materials. Students sit in classrooms that are in need of repair, and on furniture that appears to be the same as that used when our senior alumni, attended school there. Needsless to say, many of us felt compelled to take some kind of action to assist in the uplifting of the school and community where our roots lie.
With this as our impetus, in 1998 we formed the CARMEL ALL-AGE SCHOOL ALUMNI ASSOCIATION (CASAA). We hope that through communication, contribution, and cooperation, we will be able to help Carmel to be a place where rising Stars' are born. Through a combination of special events, and ongoing fundraising efforts, resources can be provided that will give the students of Carmel All-Age School a fair chance at the opportunities the 21st century has to offer.
The Carmel All-Age School Alumni Association (CASAA) was founded in 1999 as a separately incorporated nonprofit organization to advance and assist the interests of the Carmel All-Age School, its students and Graduates.
