Scenes from the Walk A Thon - 7 October, 2007

We left school just around 5.45a.m. complete with police escort, Red Cross personnel (fortunately not needed), food, water and pick-up vehicles. As we should have expected, there were the GOOD, the NOT SO GOOD, and the HAPPY BUT SLOWER which gave our police escort nuff headaches as he couldn't keep us all together. However we had no mishaps and we were grateful for his protection.
We arrived at the stadium around 7.10 (THE SLOWEST GROUP) where after having our snacks, we were able to have a brief tour of the stadium.

Senior Tea and Talk

by Megan Richmond

On Saturday, September 8, 2007, 17 of our senior girls were entertained to a
delicious tea at the Kirkpatricks of Meadowbrook Gardens. The setting was
pleasant and the orchids bloomed for us. As usual, Margery and Dougal were
gracious hosts.

We ate from generous plates, sipped tea and chatted while listening to long
forgotten tunes. When last did you swoon to Johnny Mathis' songs, girls?

Visit to the Guyana Heritage Museum and other Senior Class Notes

Reflections on a Visit to the Guyana Heritage Museum, Meten-Meer-Zorg, West Coast Demerara
by Eileen Robinson

On a cool Saturday morning – June 16, 2007, some BHSOSA Alumni boarded a maxi bus from the Alma Mater and wended our way to the Heritage Museum on the West Coast of Demerara. This trip, organized by the members of the BHSOSA Seniors Committee, took us about five miles out of Georgetown, over the Demerara Harbour Bridge, through some busy villages on a 7-mile drive to our destination, two minutes off the Public Road at Kastev, Meten-Meer-Zorg.

A TRIBUTE TO LOIS YVONNE HOLDER

Because she attended “The Bishops’ High School” she was a member of BHOSA. Apart from periods of time when Yvonne was out of Guyana pursuing her career, she was an actively contributing member of this association.
She will be remembered by all of us for her commitment, her service, her generosity, her sound ideas, her organizing skills, her sense of humour,
her “we can do it attitude” her ardent devotion to a cause…. That cause in this case being her alma mater and its products....
