The earliest records available show that the school first started as an Infants School on a small and inconvenient rented site at Tamarind Lane, near Eagle Hall Corner about 1897. In 1926, in order to provide additional accommodation for the growing population, the then Education Board removed the school to a new site purchased from the Goodland Estate, where it was built and enlarged. The school was formerly a one-room wooded building which was not in very good condition, and was quite congested. There was a fairly good playground, but the closure to this was badly in need of repairs.

In 1955, owing to an increasing roll, a new one-storey stone building was erected on the same site and the school was renamed the Eagle Hall Infants School, catering to children between the ages of five to eight. This, however, did not solve the problem of overcrowding, because the roll began increasing by leaps and bounds, so that in 1962 the Ministry of Education saw the need for further extension. This was accomplished in September of the same year, when a new block of eight rooms was erected to relieve congestion. In September 1969 the school was redesigned to a Primary School and retained all the pupils of the 9+ age group.

History records that from as early as the 1920’s the school was managed by female principals. These were:
Ms. A. L. Morris – 1928 to 1952
Ms. L. M. King – 1952 to 1961
Ms. Daphne E. Maxwell – 1961 to 1981
Mrs. Eustene Dash – 1981 to 1986
Mr. Courtney Daniel – 1986 to 1995
Mr. Bertram Murray – 1995 to 1997

In 1997 there was once again the appointment of a female principal, Ms. Marlene Thompson, whose tenure concluded in 2001. She was succeeded by Mrs. Merle Yearwood, who assumed duties as Acting Principal in April 2001. She was followed by Mr. Sydwin Bayne -April - July 2002, Mrs. Angela Holder - September 2002 - June 2004, Mrs. Christa Thornhill –September 2004 - March 2006. Mrs. Marcia Best assumed duties in April 2006 until July 2012. At. September 2012 Mrs. Juan Suzanna Rishayla Forte-Chandler assumed duty as Acting principal but unfortunately she passed away on the weekend prior to the official start of the school year. Ms. Rosina Rowe then took up the helm of the school as Acting Principal for the term September to December 2012. This was followed by Ms. Linda Archer as Acting Principal for January to April 2013. Mr. L. Orlando Jones assumed duty as the Appointed Principal from April 2013 until August 2019. At September 2019 Mrs. Cleopatra Archer assumed duties as the present Principal.

In recent years the school has undergone some transformation in its structure through the creation of a Special Unit and the introduction of a Nursery class, thus placing some emphasis on early childhood education and catering to the needs of the physically and mentally challenged.

However, there are many areas, which need to be developed and strengthened as we endeavour to ensure that our students reach the maximum level of their potential. The Curriculum is common to the National Curriculum: Language Arts, Mathematics, Social Studies, General Science, Health and Family Life Education, Religious & Moral Education, Physical Education, Music, Visual and Performing Arts, Information Technology and Spanish. Extra-Curricular Activities: Cub Scouts, Brownies, Blossoms, I.S.C.F., Environmental Club, Sign Language, Athletics, Football, Literacy Club, Swimming, Table Tennis, Chess, Choir, Dancing, Rugby, Bodybuilding, and Violin

School Song


It’s easy to follow the crowd,
To do wrong and yet feel proud –
We’ll avoid bad company, keep our integrity,
And never follow the crowd.
When peer pressure is strong, urging us to do wrong,
We’ll say a little prayer, and without fear,
Dare to do right.

We’ll remember the values taught here,
And throughout our lives we will bear
Kindness, love and courtesy, patience and honesty,
We’ll uphold these virtues dear.
When temptation is strong, urging us to do wrong,
We’ll say a little prayer, and without fear,
Dare to do right.

Wearing uniforms with pride,
By the school rules we’ll abide –
Good deportment we’ll uphold, success will be our goal
With Jesus by our side.
Consciences will be strong, they won’t lead us to wrong
When we say a little prayer, and God’s voice we hear,
Prompting to right –
“Eagle Hall, shine your light!”
“Yes, we will do right!”
