This is a long overdue 'Thank You' and tribute to all of the teachers at Saints.
They were all great. This list includes but is not limited to Fathers Scannell, Earle, Charlie Byrne, Finney, 'Jiggs,' Rodrigues, Hopkinson, Bose, Mr.Marques,
Mr.'Make noise quietly' Bacchus, 'Spider' Martin
and all the others whose names I can't remember.
Most of all, Thanks for the Love.
From: Stephen Wahab
... for the quiet and humility we were taught by the likes of
Mr. Derrel, Fr. Rigby, Fr. Darke,
and all the others from '74 to '79...we are in your debt,always...
peace be with you wherever you are.
From: John Choy
Now that I am a retired teacher, I truly realize how Saints was gifted with some very patient and kind educators. I received many "ferules" from Scannel but he counsels you everytime as you "bear the strain." He was responsible for choosing me for the Jesuit Scholarship in '57, which obviously determined my life vocation. Feeny was the greatest as I loved Science, and he encouraged you with his written and spoken "soft" comments. He also married Pat & I, and he was there to "guide" me during the "learning years" when I first started teaching Science at Saints in 1960. And speaking of "soft" counselling: Earle made you feel so unthreatened. He helped me with his "personal notes" when I took Biology "on my own" and retook Latin setbooks. He was a gem. Speaking of threatened, I immediately think of Gill. I was so afraid of him. I hid behind other classmates when it was question time, yet he always "found me" and gave a detention when I couldn't answer his question in ! French. Yet I still remember a few French words & phrases after so many years. Funny that I used his techniques when I taught -- it keeps students "on their toes!" In closing, I thank all my teachers of '51 (?) to '57, for the ground work they did, which obviously encouraged me to become a teacher, and to those of '60 to '66, who helped me during those turbulent years under Scannell. Would love to hear from you all. Love and God Bless.

This is a special tribute to Fr. Rigby who was our Form teacher in 1978 (1A) and also our French teacher. I will always remember him as a very warm person who introduced us to the French Language. He was a brilliant teacher who has influenced my decision to study French all through my academic years until University. Now, I'm a proud teacher of French and pray that I can be such a positive influence on my students. I also remember that he always prayed with us saying "Au nom du père et du fils etc" In the name of the father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost Amen. May God Bless You!
From: Shevonne Semple
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to all the wonderful and dedicated staff members that made it possible for students to become the positive role models they are today. It's strange how we really don't see what these teachers were trying to instill in us until we have left the school. Fortunately i was not that unfortunate. It is sad to see though that many of our "GOOD" teachers have left...... but for the ones that have remained (e g Mrs. Meertins and Mr.Parris) thank u for still having the faith and confidence in the school and sticking through it all.... your strenght, dedication and courage and qualities i will always admire. One day i intend to look back and say with MUCH PRIDE "Yes!!!!! that's the Saints i know MY OLD SCHOOL"
From: Lionel Singh
This is to all the teachers i had the pleasure of knowing. Such as MrDolphin, Mr Paris, Mr Solomon, Ms James, Ms France, Ms Mertains(most likely I spelt that wrong), Mr Parjon, Ms Hemraj and all the rest that I can't remember at this moment. Thanks for everything.
This goes out to Ms. Mertins, the best of all saints teachers. We all have a lot to thank her for . For me it is my grade one. Ms Mertins Keep on keeping on. Put your faith in the Lord and .trust that the school will make a name for it self.
From: Shazam Mohammed
Mr. Malcom Solomon - one of the best human beings i have ever met. a model teacher if there ever was one. thank you and may god be with you.
From: Vesta Carter
I would like to thank Mr Frederick Paris for taking the time to teach me the complicated subject of Spanish and also for all the off duty advice.
From: Eric Stephen Outridge
This is also a long overdue "Thank You" to my teachers of '70 - '75. You developed in your students a lasting foundation that we were able to build on. All those Saint's Boys you taught went on to become upstanding citizens of the world. I will always remember you fondly. THANK YOU
From: Ron Westmaas
To Frs Scannell, Earle, Bose and Marrion and Stanley Marques but especially perhaps to Stanley Greaves for being an inspiration and role model whose influence had a great effect when it came my own time to be a teacher. In naming these individuals I would not wish to underplay the contribution to my life of all the others whose misfortune it was to have me as a pupil in the 50s.
From: Lisa Carter

From: Yonette Lewis
Many thanks to all those teachers who'd put up with me. There are some I got along with better than some (It wasn't me. They just didn't like my head!!!) Just kidding. However, I did benefit from each one of you in a positive way (older and wiser, eh!). To all my teachers, hats off to you. Special thanks to Ms Moses, Mrs Mendonca, Mrs Sargeant, Ms Meertins, Mr John and last but not least, Mrs Yearwood. I did not pay much attention in your French classes. As a matter of fact, I hated the language. Now, I am fully bilingual(moved to Montreal, Canada). Again, thanks to everyone of you for your guidance and direction in making me who I am today.

This tribute is for Mr. Subryan (I'm not sure if I'm spelling his name correctly or not). He was my teacher when I attended St. Stanislaus from 1968-1970. As I recall, he was very young, in his 20's at the time. He made a big impression on me, particularly as a visiting American. He was and remains one of my favorite teachers. He was fun, fair, and stern when he needed to be. I learned a lot from him. I wonder where he is now.
From: Calvin Hamer
Thanks to Ms lurene Martins for teaching such great disciple

From: Kelly Toppin
Who can fail to recognize the sterling contributions made by Sir Rudolph Deoraj who indefatigably carries the Sixth Form Mathematics on his strong shoulders. Without such a dedicated and selfless person who qualifies for the title "Teacher" none of the math graduates at A-Levels would walk out of Saints proud to have achieved. May he be at Saints as long as God permits. I am forever indebted to his tuition, guidance, encouragement and care for the young people like us. He gives us that filip to develop ourselves and so play our part towards the development of man as a species. Say mathematics and you call the name of Sir Deoraj. Thank you Sir.
From: Horace Walcott
My gratitude to Fr. Khan. He recruited me from Central High School to pursue A-level studies in the Physical sciences and Mathematics at Saints. Dr. Narish Singh and Fr. Robrigues were excellent mentors in science. A great thank you to Fr. Lynch, the master of teaching mathematics and abstract thinking. Mr. Braithwaithe, who inspired me to maintain my focus on a veterinary career. I am also grateful to Mr. Darrel. He recommended me for the Guyana Scholarship for the study of veterinary medicine. I also thank all other teachers and support staff at Saints who maintained a spirit of independent scholsrship and harmony in the school community during the 70's. The traditions and spirit of Saints lives in my heart. I still remember the mini-courses in experimental chemistry at U.G. conducted by Dr. George Walcott. THANKS A MILLION SAINTS!
I must extend long overdue gratitudes to Dr. Narish Singh and Fr. Rodriguez, my chemistry and physics teachers, respectively. They were also science mentors. It was Mr. Darrel who recommended me for the Guyana Scholarship to pursue studies in veterinary medicine. Mr. Housien, the laboratory support specialist inspired me to have faith in my intellectual abilities. Fr. Rigby and Mr. Braithwaithe provided moral support for my quest to become a veterinarian. The laboratory studies at the University of Guyana, sponsored by Dr. George Walcott inspired me to become a toxicologist. The spirit and culture of Saints continue to inspire me, as a veterinarian and scientist.

I can't express in words what all of the teachers at "Saints" meant to me .But it is a funny thing to realise (when you are much older -Of Course) that our teachers always have our best interest at heart,.without these teachers and the rest that I can't remember.THANK YOU FOR HAVING PATIENCE WITH ME IN SCHOOL.An extra "thank you" to Mrs. Meertins ,Who always looks beyond her students outer appearance to find the real them.(You deserve to be a literature teacher!!!) ,Mr. Parris, Mrs.Jacobs(it is ironic that I now regret the difficult times I put you through, when the kids I teach don't seem to understand that I telling them to study for their own good.And yes I met one that behaves similiar to the way I behave at school. AND to the greatest one of all MR. DOLPHIN you were the best. Mr. Moses Don't get jealous . Thank you all for help moulding me into the successful young woman I've become.
