Cornwall College goes solar
The first phase of the Solar Project was successfully completed. This phase covered the administrative building but more importantly, it will give us vital data to assess the practical validity of the project. Our very own (CCOBA Canada) Charles Gordon was present to cut the ribbon for the official launch of the Solar Project. Once again, a big thank you to every one that donated and/or supported the project. However, the job is not done so we will continue to push on to meet our ultimate goal.

New Years Message from the President
Fellow Cornwallian and Friends, This time of year, a lot of people look back over the past twelve months and contemplate the big moments of their life. "Where did I go wrong"? "What did I do right"? What could I have done better? I could spend some time with you today looking back at 2012 – it was an incredibly eventful year. On this New Years Day, I want to look with you towards the future. The New Year is an appropriate time to reawaken our desire for a better future, for new beginnings, and for a world that could afford us the achievement of our dreams. There are lots of things happening at Cornwall for 2013. We will see the start of the pilot of the Solar Project - giving us a chance to assess the direction we are going with our major expenditure. This could also be the year that Cornwall become a Trust School - the last of the Traditional High schools to achieve this distinction. These two activities will define Cornwall for the future and will require lots of hard work at the school, in Montego Bay and at all alumni associations, we will need your help to be successful, I will need your help to do my part. I look forward to the coming year with eagerness and trepidation knowing that we are entering a new era at the school and knowing how important it is for us to get it right Let us all pray for success that only God can give. And let us live as true Cornwallian. Then 2013 will be the year for Cornwall.
HAPPY 2013 to one and all

CCOBA Annual Brunch 2012
Our Annual Brunch on Sunday May 06, 2012 was a huge success. We (the CCOBA team) would like to thank everyone for their support and we once again apologise for the insufficient spacing. The turnout has grown over the years and therefore the selected room appeared to be somewhat crowded. We have taken a note of this and will make the necessary changes in our preparations for future events. We thank you for your understanding and we hope that you were entertained and did enjoy the evening.
