The Saints Class of 1961 went home to Guyana for 11 days from (March 30th to April, 10th) to celebrate their 50th anniversary.
On the program, biographical updates on the following alumni were printed: David Adams, Milton Chee-A-Tow, Elson Da Silva, Compton De Castro, Oliver Farnum, Chris Fernandes, Trevor Gomes, Richard Harford, Ronald F De C Harford, Desmond Hill, Dickson Hooper, Denis La Borde, Frank Mandal, Winston Quail, Bryan Rodrigues, Dennis Rodrigues, Ernest Siebs, Francis Van Slytman, Lennox Williams, and Godfrey Wray. All except Elson Da Silva, Denis La Borde, and Compton De Castro were able to make it to Georgetown for the occasion.
Kester Alves, Thomas De Castro, and Laurie Dyal were fondly remembered in tributes written by Godfrey Wray, Rupert De Castro and Bryan’s wife, respectively. A dinner was held at the Forum of Saint Stanislaus College on Saturday 30th, at which Bernard Gibbs and Michael Belgrave were also remembered in prayer by Rev. Oliver Farnum, a 1961 class member.
The group was kept busy with a Bus Tour of the City, a Bounty Farm trip, Sunday Mass, a Reception, an Oldies Night at Club Tropicana, optional trips to Bartica, Baganara, Berbice, Arrow Point, Kaieteur and Orinduik, and even some kite-flying at the Saints (Big) Ground with a Bar-B-Q Lunch.
Many brothers, sisters, wives, and cousins used this opportunity to come back and enjoy Guyana's Hospitality with some Cook-up with Fry Fish, Metagee, Salt Fish and Bake, Pepperpot and Bread, etc. which brought back so many memories. They all had a fabulous time and most were sad to leave. Chris, the official host, expressed the wish that this would not be our guests' last trip to Guyana.

On Saturday March 24th , Saints held a very successful fair (Saints Family Affair 2012) organised by the College PTA. A wide variety of stalls and games attracted the attention of students, relatives, friends, and well-wishers. Most popular were the Chinese and Ice-Cream food stalls. In terms of games, the most popular by far was the "Pelt the Cans" booth. Despite a bit of rain at the start, a great time was had by all.
Congrats to students Wanda Emptage (Lower 6th Science) and Terrence Walker (1A) who sold the most tickets and to Mr. Moses’ Class 1A which sold the highest number by class. Our sincere thanks and appreciation go out to the PTA Chair, Ms. Sharon Granger-Ba, and her team of parents, teachers, and students.
