Top Barbadian educator passes away

Veteran educator Matthew Farley has passed away.

Matthew Farley, who retired in August 2014, after more than 40 years teaching, joined the teaching service in 1973.

He has taught at the St John’s Mixed School, Vauxhall Primary, St. Lawrence and Ellerton Primary.

He was also the principal at St. Mary’s Primary from 1996-2003 and was appointed as the principal of the Garrison Secondary School, now Graydon Sealy, in 2003.

Farley also served as a former deputy general secretary of the Barbados Union of Teachers, President of The Association of Public Primary School Principals and Chairman and Founder of the National Forum on Education.

We were both members of a singing quartet at the church and minister in song to many in those years.We both were teachers he however went on to excell in the profession.. I chose politics.. On the behalf of my family and indeed the entire St.George community I wish to offer condolences to his wife and family. May his soul rest in peace and rise in glory

    My condolences to his family. Like so many I’m shocked and so saddened to hear of the passing of one of our greats. He has made such a great contribution to education in Barbados. Many years ago I also had the privilege of interfacing with him daily for about two years as her brought his first born daughter to preschool. Sir, RIP in the loving arms of Jesus!

    Mr Matthew Farley visited Unique Helping Hands Summer Camp once and did a dramatized story for our Campers

    They rolled in stitches, but got the message

    Do your best always, even when you think no one is watching

    We at Unique Helping Hands extend our sincere condolence to his wife, family, friends, students and the entire Barbados at his passing.

    It saddens us that he has not been able to be alive to see 30th November 2016

    Life is short, let us all live, love and laugh.
