From your time as a student to your post-graduate experience as an alumni, Codrington College’s support and amenities continue, reconnect with the Alumni Network. Please enter your information below, if you haven’t as yet, we would love to hear from you.
We invite you to become one of our prestigious alumni who come from the Caribbean and International regions, and consists of a wide cross section of professionals; Office Administrators, Managers, Lawyers, Doctors, Sunday school Teachers, Sextons, Stay at home Mums, Teachers, Principals, Judges, Police Officers, Ordained Ministers and other UWI Students who pursued other programmes.
Meet our new Magistrate: Priest, lawyer, ex-cop Graveney Bannister. Which one will be the magistrate?Priest, lawyer, ex-police officer – it sounds to us that Graveney Bannister knows human failings and compassion (Priest), knows the law (Lawyer) and looks at everything with a hard-nosed cynicism (Police officer).
“I received training (for the) theological vocation in the Anglican Church at one of the oldest theological schools in the Western Hemisphere, Codrington College, Barbados,” he told The Royal Gazette. “I will maintain my day job and not be paid a stipend as a priest. It is a privilege to serve in the church and the wider community.”
Furthermore, Mr. Bannister has spent most of the last two decades away from Barbados so he is unlikely to be indebted or loyal to any political party or business group. Like our new Chief Justice Marston Gibson, it looks to us like Magistrate Bannister is as independent and untouched by corrupt power cartels as is possible in a small country like ours. Yup, Magistrate Bannister might be just what Barbados needs. Welcome back to Bim, Magistrate Bannister!
We welcome contributions to our newsletters and blogs from our alumni and friends. There are not many facilities in the region for us to share ideas and thoughts regarding issues facing those engaged in ministry.
We, therefore, trust that you will use this medium to further enable such dialogue. Contributions may include,
past stories of the life at College, Book Reviews, Theological reflections on issues in society, and more. Please
send all articles to firstname.lastname@example.org
