About Shortwood Teachers’ College


Shortwood Teacher's College Overview

Shortwood Teachers’ College is situated in the parish of St. Andrew in the area known as Shortwood. Cherry Gardens lies to the east, Norbrook to the north and Constant Spring to the west. One enters the main gate on Shortwood Road to a myriad of colours. To the left of the entrance one is greeted by a row of yellow Alamanda succeeded by a line of pink Oleander. To the right is a semicircular row of Alamanda. Further right is a restful expanse of lawn dappled by Poui trees.

Another interesting and noteworthy feature of the grounds is an outdoor auditorium complete with a stage. This aesthetically pleasing area is the usual venue for the Annual Family Dinner, Valedictory Service, Graduation and the Shortwood Old Students’ Association (S.O.S.A.) annual Valentine’s Day Tea Party. A hedge of bright, multi- coloured crotons in the foreground and a proud row of yellow Poui trees in the background, provide a delightful backdrop to this tableau.
