Fatima’s College Decade Two Past Pupils Group (1955–1964) in a historic, but very simple and informal function recently paid tribute to one of their peers Chairman of the Integrity Commission (IC) Melville Baird.

Held at the secondary school they all once attended decades ago, the ceremony began with Holy Mass celebrated by School Principal Fr Gregory Augustine CSSp and a reading by Felix Rivers in the chapel, followed by a small reception at the college hall in Mucurapo.

Mass began with a short welcome speech by current President of the Fatima Old Boys’ Association (FOBA) Ruthven Thompson who thanked the Decade Two group for the opportunity to be a part of such a revolutionary innovation. Winston ‘Brando’ Thomas, the Master of Ceremonies gave a synopsis of Baird’s college life, punctuated with wily humour.
