History making at Bethlehem Moravian College and on the Guild of Students

The JCDC Miss St. Elizabeth Festival Queen competition has been a competitive event which saw four beautiful and passionate Bethlehemites entering. The competitors did not rest as they travel to points of the parish in attempt to capture the crown. The race was intense as the Bethlehemites lit the Alpart Sports Club on Saturday Night (May 14, 2016) with the beacon. As the teeth beating moment pulled close, there was no breath left in the ladies lungs as positions were announced. Bethlehem captured the first place and third runner up positions. We, the Guild of Students would like to congratulate our fellow Guild member Ann-Marie Elliot (First Year Group Coordinator) and Shannette Daley for making a stunning achievement in capturing two of the top positions of the JCDC Festival Competition. In addition, we must commend Kadian Fletcher and Delacia Wiggan for demonstrating the confidence and zeal to enter the competition. Congratulations ladies…You have done us proud!!!

Ann-Marie is the first Bethlehem student and Guild of Students member to capture the Miss St. Elizabeth Festival Queen but is not the first to enter and achieve. N.B. the first “First Year Student to capture the top position”. Dono-Mar was the first Student Council member and Bethlehem student to capture Second Runner Up position in the Miss St. Elizabeth Festival Queen Competition 2015. In addition, Roxanne Reid was the first student of the Bachelors of Education Programme to enter the Miss St. Elizabeth Festival Queen Competition 2013.

The Emergent Master Teacher by Mrs. Joan Davis-Williams


Mrs. Davis-Williams in action at Bethlehem Moravian College

Energetic, sizzling, vibrant, spirited were among some of the adjectives used to describe Mrs. Davis-Williams. With a captivated audience, Mrs. Davis-Williams carried out a dynamic campaign to equip student-teachers with adequate knowledge, skills and confidence in approaching the working world as a teacher. Some of the moments captured were…

“No matter what people say, think big”

In chases where you have put out your all  and your attempt is not recognized. “Let the teacher keep her failing grade and keep your dream”.

“Forks have traits we all want to have-shiny, durable etc.”

“Stretching ourselves beyond our expectations”


Mrs. Joan Davis-Williams

“Ships are suppose to take you somewhere but if it is not taking you anywhere; jump ship”

“As teachers, your heart should be beating for the job”

Motivate your students and show them that you care by “Help me Brag, I did it”
