Enthusiastic energy appears to have infused Nadine Molloy Young as she makes her foray into the reputable educational institution that is the Ardenne High School.
Molloy Young, who has been a leader at all levels of her academic pursuits, both as a student and educator, ventured into Ardenne this week as principal.
Expectedly, the lively educator was equipped with an unmistakable guiding principle.
"I really do believe that a caring school is the best school," said the former president of the Jamaica Teachers' Association.
"You care about the academic performances of the students because that is what is going to give them the entry to upper-level education and the better jobs, but you also care about their attitudes that you inculcate and nurture in them," asserted the former head girl of Marymount High School in St Mary.
Molloy Young, also a former principal of the Buff Bay High School, is of the view that caring for students in a holistic way enables them to become first-rate citizens who contribute to making Jamaica better for succeeding generations.
"My philosophy is simple: leave it better than you found it," Molloy Young said. "If I can have students leave Ardenne being able to fully maximise their potential - by doing very well academically and being the best human being they can be, I feel that I would have done a good job."
