There was a display with memorabilia from Andrea (Punnett) Boos, books of poems written by June (Isaacs) Mascoll. A group picture of 1961 GHS LvL, a picture of the late Cleopatra (King) Martin etc.Joye Browne was the M.C. and we started off with the singing of the school song. She mentioned greetings
from Jean (Fraser) Anthony), Charmaine (Isaacs) Odlum, Marelise (Cherrie Cuffy) Hartley, Rosina (Pope), Roslyn (Marshall), Marjorie (Williams) Cuffy. Cheryl (Phills) King mentioned greetings from other 1962 Form 5 students who had been in touch with her including, Cynthia (Haynes) Ashby, Joan (Samuel) Simien, Elsa (Stephens) Jones, Norma Neverson, Pearlie (Sutherland) Crichton etc.

Mention was made of the recent passing of Joyce (Peters) McKenzie in June a former teacher of GHS and friend to many of us. A moment of silence was observed in honor of our late Head-mistress Miss Janet Bucchan and others of the 1962 Fifth Form who are no longer with us. These included
Cleopatra (King) Martin, Nesta Paynter, Cathy (Smith) Durrant and Jennifer Williams. Evelyn (Gould) Rose brought greetings from Dr. Joyce Toney who is the President of the Girls' High School Alumnae Association of NY. Dr. Errol King paid tribute to the late Mrs. Gladys Hadley who not only taught at GHS but taught Geography at the Grammar School as well when the Grammar School needed a Geography teacher. Miss Bucchan was the Head-mistress when some members of the class of 1962 entered the Girls' High School, and Mrs. Hadley was the Acting Head-Mistress when other members of the class of 1962 entered GHS. Mrs. Keizer reminded us to keep Miss Jacobs in mind and it was decided that a visit should be paid to Miss Jacobs. Margaret Allen and Elitha (McMahon) Grant reminisced about GHS and thanks were offered for the fine training that we received at the institution. It was a wonderful morning of bonding and fellowship. Joye reminded us of the events that would take place for the rest of the week.

We were asked to think also of 2011 which would mark the centennial of GHS.We were asked to also keep in mind the Endowment Fund which is being initiated by the 1962 GHS Fifth Form but which will solicit funds from all past students, teachers and friends of GHS.These funds will be used to help meet the needs of students of GHS.

For more info. about The Endowment Fund contact Lynette Glasgow-Norris at It was also mentioned that the Grammar School will be celebrating their centennial in 2008.

On Monday 7/1/2002 we gathered at the GHS. At approximately 9:30 a.m.  the dedication of the name sign which will be placed at the entrance to the school took place. The student body of the school assembled and the 1962 GHS group was welcomed by the Deputy Head-Mistress Mrs. Roxanne Lalsee. The School Hymn was sung. Prayers and devotion were led by Mr. Hermon Cummings.
Remarks were made by Joye Browne and the dedication was done by Dean Ulric Smith, husband of 1962 Fifth Former, Dawn (DaSantos) Smith.The Head-Mistress, Mrs. Susan Dougan addressed the Assembly and thanked the group for the contribution to the school. Then the School Hymn were sung. It was a poignant moment as present students observed past students giving back something tangible to their Alma Mater.

We were given a tour of the Library and the Computer Science room while in the background we were entertained by the strains of the GHS steel-band as they practised for the steel-band competition that was due to take place as part
of the carnival activities.

On Tuesday 7/2/2002 we attended the Graduation and Prize Giving Ceremony of GHS which took place at the Methodist Church. It was reminiscent of our Speech Night in a way. It was an inspirational occasion. In attendance were Dr.The Hon. P.M. Ralph Gonsalves, The Acting Governor-General Her Excellency Monica (Sheen)Dacon a former student and teacher of GHS. The Deputy Head-Mistress Mrs. Roxanne Lalsee was the M.C. and welcomed the 1962 GHS Fifth Form group. During the report of the Head-Mistress, Mrs. Susan Dougan, the P.M. was observed taking notes as the head-Mistress outlined the needs of the school.1962 GHS Fifth-formers who participated in the Graduation Exercises were Dawn (DaSantos) Smith who was the featured speaker, former Head-Mistress Joye Browne was introduced and applauded, former teacher Helen (Bowman) Agard was introduced and applauded and Cheryl (Phills) King presented the Special Prizes and Awards.

The student of the year Andrea Veira was presented with the Lady Antrobus Prize for English, the award
donated by the NY Alumnae for Chemistry, the award donated by the Toronto Alumnae-Gladys Hadley for Geography, the prize for Information Technology donated by Dick Office Machines Services.

Each 1962 GHS Fifth Former spoke for a few minutes about the joy experienced during the week of activities. Dick Neverson husband of 1962 Fifth Former Marcelle (Alves) Neverson, lauded the 1962 GHS Fifth Form for their efforts.

His hope is that former students of the Grammar School would embark on a similar venture in the near future.

At the end of our successful reunion we now look to the future. What next ?
A global summit of all former students of GHS ? This much we know, there is a need for this kind of venture on a regular basis. To those who could not join us this time we hope that you will be able to do so next time. The count-down for the centennial of GHS in 2011 has already begun.

Thanks to Lynette Norris-Glasgow (for planting the seed of having the 1962 Fifth Formers get together in 2002), to the Planning Committee for putting it all together, to the caterers for the fine cuisine, to everyone who participated in any way, to Len Edwards ( for helping us by mentioning the reunion in his newsletter to Tony Hadley for helping us by putting the information on his web-site:
