Rishi at JCCSS 1 (1)

 

I’m always proud to wear our high school tie. I remember our French and Latin master Mr. Cecil A. Parkinson (“Parky”) used to say: “plus ça change, plus c’est la même chose.” Mr. Parkinson was an old boy of Queen’s College who taught for many years at Berbice High School before coming to Corentyne High School. When I started teaching I sat right next to Mr. Parkinson. When he retired I inherited his desk in the teachers’ staff room.
