About Moneague College

The Moneague College is centrally located in a small rural village in St. Ann, a parish famous for its salubrious climate and its sub-terranean lake, which rises periodically. The property on which the college is located was first known as Rose Hall when purchased by its original owner, Englishman, John Hutchinson. John Hutchinson left Rose Hall to his two daughters and stipulated that it would be the legacy of his grand children. In the late 1800s, the sisters failed to pay taxes on the property.

The ensuing years saw the property taking on many functions namely, as a hotel to house visitors to an Agricultural exhibition in the early 1890s; later as a juvenile camp for wayward girls and during World War II, as a Solider Camp. It was in response to the growing need for education and training of primary school teachers that Moneague opened its door as a training institution in 1956. Dr. Aubrey Phillips was the first principal of the institution. Opened with 104 students, demand enrollment to 626 by 1978. Initially, the college concentrated on teacher training in Primary and Early Childhood Education, but as demand increased, training for secondary school teachers was added. In 1981, a three year intra-mural training course was added to the curriculum.

The college was closed in 1985 but reopened in 1987, with a new focus: the training of a group of teachers who held trained teachers’ certificates. The college effectiveness as a teacher training institution was reflected in it gaining the esteemed D.R.B Grant Award for the highest achiever in Early Childhood and Primary Post Certificate Training for four consecutive years. The college earned the award six times in the ten yea run of the programme.

In 1993, the college evolved into a Multidisciplinary institution, this time, a Community College was added. An evening institute was also established in the same year. This saw the college offering such courses as Business Studies, Office Administration, Computer Studies, A.A.T., Tourism and Hospitality, A’ Levels, CXC, GCE, Management Information System and Office Technology. Through the evening programme various professional and short courses are also offered, these include Cake Baking and Decorating, Interior Design, Floral Arrangement and certificate in computing. The college in association with the University of the West Indies offer certificates in Management Studies, Social Works and Public Administration.

As the Evolution of The Moneague College continued, 1997 saw the re-introduction of the three year intra-mural teacher-training programme in Primary Education and Secondary Education in Business Studies. The Teacher Education Department was further diversified in the year 2000 with the introduction of a three-year diploma course in Literacy Studies. Presently, the college operates three campuses- Main campus, Port Maria campus and Linstead campus.
