St Mary’s College holds museum exhibition
St Mary’s College will be staging a museum exhibition at the Centenary Hall of the College from today to October 25. The exhibition is one of several events organised to commemorate the Sesquicentennial (150th) anniversary of the Arrival of the Holy Ghost Fathers in Trinidad and the founding of St Mary’s College.
The objective of the exhibition is to highlight major milestones and outstanding achievements of the college over the last 150 years, as a means of creating awareness for a varied audience, inclusive of current and past students and the public in general.
Amidst the historical displays, visitors will have the opportunity to access college annuals and school records, dating as far back as 1863. Visitors will also learn about the founding of the college, its past principals and staff, its academic and sporting successes throughout the years and the contribution of the Holy Ghost Fathers to education in T&T. Special features will showcase Sir Solomon Hochoy, Archbishop Pantin, Fr Gerry Pantin, the first and sixth Trinidad Sea Scouts and a selection of Cazabon lithographs given to the college as a gift many years ago.
Information will be documented mainly in a visual format through the use of mounted photos, articles, display boards, interactive computer and videos, with concise narratives and captions.
• The exhibition will be opened to schools on weekdays and to the public on the weekend of October 19 and 21, from 10 am to 5 pm. Visitors to the exhibition on the weekend can also enjoy two historic tours of the college and the chapel. Call 682-2316 or 777-6640 for bookings.
• Admission to the exhibition is free of charge.
