  • In a clean, professionally-staged and presented event, Prof. Dr. Brinsley Samaroo launched his latest book "Adrian Cola Rienzi, The Life and Times of an Indo-Trinidadian Progressive" at the Naparima College Auditorium, on Saturday, May 14, at 5:00 pm. The event included an address by the mayor of San Fernando, and was ably hosted by the Naparima Association of Past Students, and their masters of ceremony. Standing on the ground of his own alma mater, Dr Samaroo himself delivered quietly passionate remarks about colonialism, unionism, and Rienzi's role in this context.

  • OBITUARY: Sad news of the passing of Krishna Brijmohansingh (Butty), May 9. 2022, at a sister's residence in Marabella, after ailing for some time. He was from Cedros originally but stayed with an uncle, the Principal of the Rio Claro Hindu School. Brij entered Naps around 1958 and stayed in Dorm. Graduating with a Cambridge Grade 1, he joined the national Meteorological Services in the mid-1960s, first at a POS office and then at Piarco, eventually retiring at age 60. Never married, Brij was a well-loved colleague and friend of many of his schoolmates.

    The photo at left is of his classmate Lalsingh Ramsingh of Cooliewood (NC 1958-63), who also passed away a few days later.    .
