Tributes continue to pour in for the late Coleridge and Parry student, Karim Busby, 16, who died early Saturday morning after the Nissan March car he was driving struck a guard wall at Prospect, St James.

Today, principal of the Coleridge and Parry School, Vincent Fergusson, spoke glowingly of the late student, who was regarded by both teachers and members of the student body as a model student.

Fergusson said: “ Karim was like a God-son to me. He was a fantastic young man. He was not rude or disrespectful to his mother or his father. He spent a lot of time with his grandparents. He was raised in the traditional extended family by both of his grandparents. He was a good student and had just graduated a couple Saturdays ago.

“ I can say that I came in contact with Karim before he was born. His father grew up as a young man in my district, Ashton Hall, St Peter, and I nurtured him. I did likewise to his two sons,” Fergusson added.
