DaCosta Cup 2021:
The government has approved the staging of the schoolboy football competition for 2021 beginning Friday November 12th. Our school deCarteret College will participate in the competition. This i s a very unusual year because of the pandemic so both the pre-season and season matches are being fast tracked. This being the case, we have expenses that must be funded somehow, eg. food, boots, coaches remuneration, water, ice, medical kit, etc. We need the assistance of our loyal alumni to help us fund this worthwhile initiative. All alumni interested in providing support for our boys can either donate or send us a message at email@example.com so we can advise you of what our needs are and how you can help otherwise. Let's give our boys our support.
The DCAA was born out of the consciousness that adequate civic training of young deCarteret College students would enable them to exercise decisive influence and right actions that will help to build the nation of Jamaica.
