The Steel Band was formed in 1996. This was an initiative of Sister Marie Goretti Grey, FMS after she fell in love with the sound of the pans while being entertained by another high school band. Our Band first started out as a Staff Band and then evolved into a band for students; which was coached led by Mr. Errol Knibbs who died in 2005.

Notwithstanding several changes in leadership since then, the Band has maintained its high quality performance and has received numerous requests to perform. Since 2010 the band has been coached by Mr. Rajhean Baptiste. Since September 2014 we have been coached by our own Rashaine Bean of Sixth Form.
