      QRC class of '79 celebrates with three-day events
      Guardian 11.04.04

      With Pan Royale 2004 (T&T Steelpan and Jazz Festival) history, past
      students of Queen's Royal College continue to be busy, generating
      critically needed funds for the institution. Future projects include the
      annual Old Boys' dinner on November 13, the January 8 Outta de Blue
      all-inclusive Carnival fete.

      However, before these events, the Class of '79 Reunion is celebrating its
      25th anniversary, marking quarter-century since its students' Forms four
      and five and six graduations. The members of the team will celebrate with
      an all-inclusive three-day event. In addition to providing an opportunity
      for "old boys" to unwind, reconnect with classmates, and remember the
      old days" at QRC, the three-day soiree also includes for families.

      The three-day package commences on November 12, with a Friday Lime at the
      Skyview Lounge of the Cascadia Hotel, St Ann's, from 6.30 pm. Organisers
      say that premium drinks and "good food" will be in abundance.

      The Class of '79 also intends making its presence felt at this year's Old
      Boys' Association dinner, scheduled for 7 pm at the school's grounds.
      of '79 official Kenrick Harrinauth said this week, "imagine we getting
      calls from old boys from the 60's and 50's wishing us congrats on de
      Reunion, many who currently reside abroad."

      To round off the three days, the Class of '79 Family Day will be held on
      November 14, from 11.30 am at the QRC grounds. The day's itinerary
      small goal, all fours and cricket, food, drinks (including Solo in the
      bottle, a staple beverage for QRC students of yesteryear), and cutters.

      The entire three-day package costs $500, and cheques can be made
      payable to
      Class of '79. A commemorative Class of '79 reunion magazine is also being
      produced and old boys are invited to submit pictures, notes, articles,
      anecdotes or jokes about their "QRC experience" for inclusion in this

      Most of the proceeds from the three-day affair will be placed in a trust
      fund to help current QRC students who are identified by principal William
      Carter as being in financial need.

      The Class of '79 also intends establishing a mentorship programme, as
      as initiate career guidance seminars. Harrinauth added: "Our reunion must
      have a positive impact on the lives of QRC boys, past as well as current.

      "We promise the ultimate all-inclusive reunion; an enduring keepsake,
      celebrating a lifetime of great memories, not to mention an
      opportunity to
      give something back to the college."
