Group Admins

The mission of the Wolmer’s Alumni Association, Toronto, is to support the vision of the Wolmer's Schools in Kingston, Jamaica. Your support in helping us to raise funds for Wolmer's contributes to the scholastic and personal growth of students.

The Group’s Purpose

Established in 1729, Wolmer’s Boys and Wolmer’s Girls School are located in Kingston, Jamaica. Currently enrolment at each school is 1500 students. The schools provide high quality secondary education leading to university and college entrance. Both schools are supported by grants from the Government of Jamaica, and by funds solicited from alumni, parents and friends. Currently the funding from these revenue streams is highly inadequate, and threatens the sustained development of both schools and their ability to maintain their high standards of academic excellence.

How to Help

Your donations will help to support the mission of the Wolmer's Alumni Association, Toronto Chapter.
