Eden Lodge, St. Michael
Eden Lodge Primary was officially opened on 2nd March, 1981 as a result of the amalgamation of the Montgomery Primary and Edghill Memorial Primary schools. The Honourable Louis Tull, then Minister of Education, unveiled a plaque to mark the official opening of the school.
The Eden Lodge Primary School was the first school to be built under the World Bank Project and caters to pupils between the ages of 4.5 to 11 years. The first principal was Mrs. Ilene Cumberbatch of the former Edgehill Memorial Girls’ School. She had a staff of twenty-eight teachers, twenty-seven of whom were from the two schools that were amalgamated.

We build our school on Thee O Lord
Rest upon your children now,
When in praise your name we hallow,
When in prayer to you we bow;
In the wondrous story reading
Of the Lord of truth and grace,
May we see your love reflected
In the light of his dear face.
May we learn from this great story
All the arts of friendliness;
Truthful speech and honest action,
Courage, patience, steadfastness;
How to master self and temper,
How to make our conduct fair;
When to speak and when be silent,
When to do and when forbear.
May your Spirit wise and holy
With his gifts our spirits bless,
Make us loving, joyous, peaceful,
Rich in goodness, gentleness,
Strong in self-control, and faithful,
Kind in thought and deed; for he
Teaches, ‘What you do for others
You are doing unto me.’
