The Berkeley Institute and The Berkeley Educational Society held an event today [Sept 6] to celebrate the school’s 123rd anniversary, hosting a ‘Drive by Greeting or Choose to Stay A While’ event, which was designed to celebrate while observing Covid precautions.

According to Berkeley’s website, “On September 6, 1897, The Berkeley Institute [elementary and high school] was opened on the ground floor of the Samaritan’s Hall, Court Street, Hamilton. At that time, it was a private school [(parents had to pay a fee].

“The principal was George A. DaCosta. There were fifteen boys and twelve girls present. On November 25, 1899, a parcel of land was purchased from a Miss Eve for 300 pounds. This is the site of the Berkeley Institute school on St. John’s Road, Pembroke.”
