St. Mary - Oracabessa Primary School

A Stronger Nation Begins With A Pledge

The Oracabessa Primary School is a government-owned grade four co-educational institution. It is rural primary school located in Oracabessa, St. Mary. The Oracabessa Primary School is situated on the North Coast approximately seven (7) km west of Port Maria the parish capital. The school is located on Wharf Road and is in close proximity to the James Bond Beach. 

The main buildings were built in 1947 with a nog structure and consist of board flooring. The additional buildings were built with physical plywood and concrete base. These buildings include administrative office, principal office, staff room, classrooms, resource room, library, computer lab, canteen, tuck-shop, Guidance Counsellors offices, bathrooms, music room/stage and a small restroom. As a result of the age of the buildings, they are now in disrepair.

Despite the lack of proper buildings and insufficient space Oracabessa Primary continues to do well. For four (4) consecutive years the school has held the national title in Dance class 3 in the Jamaica Cultural Commission Development’s competitions. They also placed third in the 2016 Mathematics Olympiad put on by the University of the West Indies. The school has also been doing well in local sporting activities and has held the charge in academics in the Parish. Oracabessa Primary is the school of choice in the area because of its achievements.

How will the funds be used?

The Pledge2Build campaign was developed to raise funds for capital improvement of early childhood and primary institutions across Jamaica. This is to ensure that the schools are safe and provide children with a conducive learning environment.
