MaddieCongratulations to everyone involved in the new school!
I am a bit confused as to the location...Edie Major's store is between the Lounge and the Sugar Mill or did he move? I will try to bring down some arts & crafts supplies this winter.

Fig Tree News TeamAfter one year of research, planning, and dreaming, we are ready to the launch Dunmore School. Dunmore School is a non-profit private school established to offer a choice to the families of Harbour Island, Bahamas.

Our mission is to provide a low student-teacher ratio in a small, intimate setting. Focus will highlight critical thinking and problem-solving skills, building community involvement and leadership, and encouraging independent life-long learners. Our goals for students include developing social values, a sense of personal responsibility, and strategies for conflict resolution. It is also our desire to identify, encourage, and educate leaders of the future.

The inaugural year will consist of a K-1 multi-age classroom, with long-range plans of establishing grades K-12. The current student body consists of 12 children from diverse and varied backgrounds representative of the Harbour Island/Eleuthera community. Full and partial scholarships are available based on financial need, leadership potential, and prior academic performance.

Open House - Monday 2 September 2002 [9:00 am-12 noon]

First day of school - Tuesday 3 September 2002. The hours are 9-3, and parental involvement is required. Parents are presently helping with food preparation and class supervision, and several parents are working as academic volunteers.

At this point, we need your support. As with any not-for-profit organization, our initial start-up costs are considerable. Our needs range from tables, chairs, pencils, and books to the actual shelves that hold them. To enrich the everyday lives of the students, we need computers, art supplies, musical instruments, and sports equipment. Annual operating expenses -- salaries, rent, utilities, consumable learning materials, supplies, etc). -- must also be met. In addition to monetary and in-kind donations, we are seeking Mentors to "adopt" students, thus building relationships and allowing the guidance of positive role models. We are in the process of establishing not-for-profit status with the American Treasury Department for contributions to be properly recorded. Donations may be made directly to Royal Bank of Canada, Account Name: Dunmore School

Harbour Island is special.
Your gift will help change the future for the children and the island.

For more information, contact academic director Patricia Masisak or co-founder Tracy Barry by e-mail at or by telephone at 333-2707 or 333-3003
Thank you --
