St. Margaret’s Primary School
Considered one of the leading public primary schools in Guyana today, St Margaret’s was founded in the year 1935 by the late Margaret Winifred Hunter and operated then as a private school.
The school was headed by Hunter up until 1981 and later became government managed under the Ministry of Education.
2010 marked the school’s 75th year in existence and in recognition of this, a series of activities were held in celebration. In school the activities included a spelling bee and best decorated classroom competitions and a games night with the Parent Teachers Association (PTA) body.
This was followed by poster exhibitions and clean-up activities.
