Mrs Beatrice Geria studied at Gayaza High School from 1979-1982 and was most pleasantly surprised to see Music on the syllabus, which she enjoyed dearly. Little did I know that it would become part of my identity. Her qualifications: Dip. Ed, BA, ABRSM (Associated Board of The Royal Schools of Music) Dip. Principles of Voice Teaching, and MBA.
Mrs. Geria was in Hutchinson House, where she was tasked with roles such as leading stationary housework team, Farm Leader, and Publicity Secretary of the Christian Club Committee. She owes her spiritual and leadership roots to Gayaza High School.
In 1988, Mrs Geria returned to Gayaza High School as a teacher of Music, English and Literature, after some encouragement from her Music teacher, Ms Hobday.
