The past students of the former Jamaica School of Agriculture and its successor, the College of Arts Science and Education, will jointly host the 100th anniversary activities of the prestigious institution this year.

The celebrations fittingly kicked off on Sunday with church services at the Church of St Mary the Virgin in Kingston; Ocho Rios Baptist Church in St Ann; Calvary Baptist Church in Montego Bay, St James, and Wesley Methodist Church in Manchester.

On February 24, there will be a panel discussion on the topic Agriculture and Agricultural Education - The Way Forward, at a location and time to be announced in Mandeville, Manchester.

Here are some pictorial highlights of the service held at the Wesley Methodist Church.
