Athlone Wing

athlone wing interiorIn 1955, the year following the polio epidemic in Jamaica a new wing was built Mona Rehabilitation Centre to accommodate the children with polio who survived. It was named the Athlone Wing after Princess Alice, Countess of Athlone, the first Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, who was very interested in the Centre.

The Athlone Wing became a home to 34 severely disabled children, led by a competent and compassionate house mother, Matron Pringle. Today, the children live there until the age of 18. There are currently four dormitories – two for girls and two for boys.  The dormitories flank a central living and dining area and are adjacent to a large veranda.

Its purpose is to provide a friendly home for children to live and be cared for whilst attending school in surrounding areas. Most of the children who live here are from regions of Jamaica, where schools are inaccessible (these school may have steps instead of ramps and other facilities which cater to the mobility of children in wheelchairs and on crutches). They come to live at the Athlone Wing to attend schools in the area such as the Hope Valley Experimental School (a school established at Mona in 1974 specifically to afford physically disabled children the opportunity to attend a school which integrated disabled children into the regular classrooms) or the Mona Secondary School, which is also accessible to the physically disabled.

Most of the children are from families which are desperately poor. Upon being admitted to the Athlone Wing, they are provided with clothing, school books and supplies, personal needs, and recreation equipment by the Friends of Mona, a volunteer support group established in  the 1950s.

Extracurricular activities include Brownies, Guides, swimming, and track and field.  Several of Jamaica’s world-renowned Paralympic medalists grew up at the Athlone Wing.
