Thornton Primary School is the local school in Sunning Hill, Jamaica. There are 120 students in the school and the Principal is M.P. Burton. There are six teachers.
Below is a list of supplies needed by this and other basic schools on the island.
The primary school is right by Mokko's yard.
The teachers have extended a big Thank-You for contributions!
In Jamaica, parents must supply school uniforms and supplies. This is a large barrier for many families who want to send their children to school.
Lunch of buns and milk are provided everyday. But, a box lunch of rice and peas and chicken can be purchased at the tuc shop (little shop) across the street, for those who can afford it. This is a mighty fine treat.
