The well-known girls' high school association, Immaculate Conception, recently launched its 80th anniversary celebrations. Not only is Immaculate among the oldest high schools in Jamaica - 154 years - but its alumnae association is also among the oldest - celebrating 80 years during 2012.

The launch took the form of a luncheon at the Alhambra Inn Hotel on March 15 where the guest speaker was Beryl Williams, the oldest living past president of the association, who was flown in from New York especially for the occasion.

Here are some pictorial highlights of the occasion.
