Cheap China Jerseys among other things

The Essequibo Islands Secondary School (EISS) celebrates its 40th anniversary today. The institution was so named because initially it served students of Wakenaam, Leguan and the other islands in the Essequibo River.  The location of the first school building was at Fredericksburg Village,Cheap Soccer Jerseys, Wakenaam Island.  It was a small building that originally housed the Fredericksburg Church of Scotland School.  The location of that building was ideal for both Wakenaam and Leguan students.Transportation, however, was very costly.  It was also hazardous for the Leguan students who had to cross the Essequibo River via launch.  The first principal of the school was Mr. Odho Dyal.  He only worked for one year.  He was succeeded by Mr. J. C. Palmar.  Mr Palmar also worked for a couple of months before Mr. William B. Alexander was appointed Principal. Mr. Alexander, who resided at Wakenaam, served for five years. During those years, the population of the school grew and an annex was established about 300 metres away from the school in a house that was owned by Mr. Michael Amos, the father of Baroness Valerie Amos.In 1980, under the headship of Mr. Jamal Sultan, another principal who resided at Wakenaam, a two-flat wooden structure was erected by self help and the annex was abandoned. In 1982, Leguan Island received its own Secondary School and most of the students of that island were transferred to Leguan.Over the years, the school was fortunate to have had principals who were residents of Wakenaam Island and at least one of them was a former student of the school. The present principal is Mr. Jaidat A. Persaud, who was appointed on January 1st, 1988.  Due to the deteriorating conditions of the buildings that housed the school at Fredericksburg Village,Wholesale Authentic Jerseys Outlet, government sought a new school building in a suitable location on Wakenaam.  The roads on the island at that time were also in a terrible condition and students and teachers found it difficult to reach Fredericksburg Village. By late 2003,Supply NFL Jerseys Factory, a building was constructed under the Primary Education Improvement Project (PEIP) for a Primary School at Sans Souci Village and government was forced to let the Secondary School occupy that building.
