School History

The history of Barataria North Secondary School goes back to April 17th 1972 when the school was established; headed by Mr. Jalbol Paul; the school’s first principal. Mr. Paul served from April 17th 1972 through 1979. At that time the school was known as Barataria Junior Secondary School.

The motto of the school at that time was "PREPARE TODAY FOR A BETTER TOMORROW".

Barataria Junior Secondary, like all other Junior Secondary Schools at that time, was operated on a shift basis – morning shift (A.M.) and afternoon shift (P.M.).

The A.M shift hours were from 7:15am to 12:15pm and the P.M shift from 12:30pm to 5:15pm. The A.M shift students were green and white-green trousers/skirts, white shirts/blouse,

while the P.M shift students were yellow shirts/blouse with green trousers/skirts. Regardless of the shift, the school was always represented by students from both shifts at competitions such as football, netball, cricket, basketball, graduation exercises and so on.
