History of Hockey & St Andrew

A Rich and Wonderful History – 

From the inception hockey has been an important  part of life at St Andrew.  A hockey field was already on the Cecelio Avenue property when it was purchased. The School and Old Girls have maintained a strong tradition of leadership on and off the hockey field as well as being many time Champions in inter school and club competitions. Many all-Jamaica captains came from SAHS.
