    What I have always found as a much more compelling discussion re Barbados scholars is why there is no national registry of those so awarded and in some regards an accounting of where they are.

    Obviously – as Jeff noted on another blogs – students evolve and develop at different paces so its not that we are putting a spotlight on these academics to the detriment of others or to put any undue pressure of those awardees. Rather for a small island we should be spotlighting their successes and encouraging others of that ability to strive to be like them.

    And as importantly we should be pushing our scholars into areas that will provide greatest future upside to them and to the country.

    DE PEDANTIC BETZPAENIC MORON ALWAYS TRIES TO PROVE HE IS RIGHT WHEN HE IS WRONG WRONG WRONG

    GRANTLEY ADAMS TOM ADAMS HENRY FORDE SANDIFORD WERE BARBADOS SCHOLARS BUT NOT BARROW

    YOU ARE TOTALLY CLUELESS, AS USUAL AS, IS VERY CLEAR BUT OTHERS HERE KNOW WHAT THEY ARE TALKING ABOUT

    RE I have absolutely no idea why there is seaming angry chatter about Bdos Scholarship.
    NO ONE IS ANGRY
    WW WANTS TO TALK ABOUT IT, SO THATS A GOOD REASON TO TALK ABOUT IT

    EXHIBITIONS WERE OFFERED AS EARLY AS THE EARLY 70’S ON THE BASIS OF THE UNIVERSITY SCHOLARSHIP EXAMS WHICH WERE WRITTEN IN FEBRUARY- MARCH

    RE Further the other issue was that students doing literature and languages had a more difficult study path towards a scholarship than those doing sciences…
    BOVINE EXCREMENT

    students doing literature and languages WERE GETTING SCHOLARSHIPS FROM THE INCEPTION AND ALL ALONG

    MANY OF THOSE WHO EVENTUALLY BECAME DRS GOT THEIRS IN CLASSICS. EG DR JORDAN

    HOW CAN A MAN WHO IS SO IGNORANT ABOUT WHAT HE IS TALKING, TALK SO MUCH WAFFLE AS HE SEEKS TO CONTRADICT THOSE WHO KNOW

    EXCEPT FOR THE LATE DR THOMAS A STUDENT OF BFS WHO GOT A SCHOLARSHIP IN THE 50’S AND DR TR SHEPHERD OF COMBERMERE, BDOS SCHOLARS TENDED TO BE LODGE BOYS OR KOLIJ BOYS, UNTIL THEY DESTROYED THE LODGE SCHOOL

    SOME TIME CERCA THE 70’S OR LATER ONE OF THE FIVE SCHOLARSHIPS AS THY WERE THEN WAS RESERVED FOR A FEMALE

    THERE WERE NO SCHOLARSHIPS IN 72… ONE FEMALE AND FOUR LADS GOT EXHIBITIONS

    THOSE OF US WHO SANG PRAISES IN THE HALL AT KOLIJ HAD THE PRIVILIGE OF MEETING THE PERSONS ATTACHED TO THE NAMES ON THOSE MAHOGANY BOARDS IN THE KOLIJ HALL

    GP,
    Why you people like to call Alvin name so much? Alvin went to Cawmere. I went in the days when ONLT students of, Lodge, Harsun, and Queens had the opportunity to sit the B’dos Scholarship exam. In those days; the days of Grantley, Tom, Springer etc, won scholarships, only ONE scholarship was awarded and it was a competitive single exam.. There were no science classes or labs at the other secondary schools until the sixties.Students of my time had to pay to go to secondary school, and my mother could not afford to pay for me to go to Harsun. (more expensive than Cawmere. So Alvin had to do all his science studies at university level, when he was able to study in the U.S. via a tuition waiver.. He was good at some of the other subjects though.

    LOLL # Gabriel, so you are saying that when GP speaks not a dog must bark! Strangle enough that is NOT what the hard labour of our education system was built to facilitate.

    Pray tell what so makes you ” tad surprised at some of the stuff you present for the esteemed BU readerships”. Surely you are not confabulating my remark about literature and languages vis a vis a scholarship in Classics.

    Regardless, this was never a fight or argument (at least not on my part). I was certainly not attempting to offer a definitive commentary on the matter…I clearly noted it was remarks based on memory.

    Generally speaking as bloggers we amend to the discourse and build….

    Dr GP apparent need to eviscerate anyone who says ‘biff’ different to him is childish and pathetic!

    It was an interesting palaver as usual….BTW, I always was of the view that EWB had achieved a Scholarship from BIM so I am now suitably corrected.

    @WW&C…there is nothing sinister about my comment of basically ‘where are they now’. No one wants to hound or harass. It’s a simple construct of life to look towards your best and brightest.

    The names of the scholars are proudly listed on ‘Boards’ at the various schools. There is absolutely no comprehensive list available however. Nothing sinister. And certainly not a damn thing about paying back loans.

    You have a tendency to proceed along the most unnecessary paths! And make some absolutely strange remarks. Whether Stephen died (blessed be to the man’s memory) as a result of stress or not what in heavens name does that have to do with anything here.

    When too much red tape prevails, it could result in even longer delays in getting parts out of Miami. Plus there may not be that level of trust between the supplier and QEH.
    If you are trusted by the supplier,there are short cuts around, that could see the items in Barbados in 24-48 hours.
    The trend these days is not to tie up too much money in having Non-Fast Moving items lying in stock, when they could be obtained in 24 to 48 hours. Maybe a Catch -22 situation for the QEH.

    I’m putting it to you that you could not have seen 6 WORKING ambulances parked at that house. You would have seen 4 ambulances, 2 are out of commission and 2 are in service.

    Additionally, it was erroneous for you to state that “THE PRIVATE AMBULANCE SERVICE IS RUN OUT OF A PLACE ON SPRING GARDEN IN THE VICINITY OF THE SOL OFFICE THERE..”

    Well Well,
    I should mention that my Parents” did not smell hell. My mother; my father died in Bermuda when I was about seven years old, so my mother alone raised us. She smelled more than hell, as a single parent, in those days. We had no welfRE AYATEM A THAT TIME SO ONE HAD TO MAKE DO WITH WHAT ONE HAD, AND DO WITHOUT WHEN IT WAS NOT POSSIBLE TO GET what one wanted. Education was, and always is, the key that unlocks doors

    2-4 good tamarind/ birch lashes and some training/ education would work for most of these miscreants, globally, instead of wasting $$$$$ by imprisoning where he might learn from the other Cons
