Remembering Karim Busby
Staff and students of the Coleridge and Parry School joined the family of the late Karim Busby yesterday to bid farewell to the 16-year-old who died earlier this month in a car accident in Prospect, St James.
He died one week after graduating from the Ashton Hall, St Peter institution.
Busby’s form teacher, Patrina Jordan remembered him as “a pleasure to teach”, and a student who helped maintain interest and class togetherness and lifted the spirits of his fellow students.
Jordan recalled his sense of humour, telling those gathered at the assembly hall he could always say something to make the class erupt in laughter.
But she said there was a serious side to Busby, who often competed with his classmates for the highest grades.
Jordan also recalled the 16-year-old’s love of music which led him to join the school choir, and also represent Coleridge and Parry at NIFCA.
She added that with Busby’s untimely passing, her class lost a good friend and a brother, and she, a son.
School Principal, Vincent Fergusson, also paid tribute to Busby.
