  • Rev. and Mrs Lute's youngest son, John, passed away earlier this month, in Toronto. John was born in Trinidad around the same time that the Lutes came to Naparima. Living on the Hill, he grew up in the shadow of his father's achievements all around him, whilst his elder brothers Teddy and Jimmy were students at the school. The Lutes left the island before John started high school.
    John pursued a career
    as a financial advisor in Toronto. He was married, with two children. The sympathy of the Naparima community goes out to the Lute family and their many friends.
    Obituary: Peter John Lute - February 13, 1954 January 14, 2022.




  • NAAC advises that Mr. Clifford Ramcharan, a longstanding member of the Naparima community, has passed away at age 96, in Brandon, Manitoba.

    In the 1950's, Clifford was a teacher at Naparima College and earned a reputation as an outstanding geography master. When Iere High School was established in Siparia in 1955, its first principal was Naparima's Rev. Weldon Grant, and he asked for Clifford to work with him at the fledgling institution. Iere's initial staff complement of three conststed of these two and Clifford's sister, Phyllis. Brother Alfred joined them the next year.

    In the original spirit of Naparima College, Iere alumni affirm: “The Ramcharans were more than teachers; they were friends and they were part of our lives. The Iere Alumni will always be thankful for and cherish Clifford’s memory”. Ramcharan House is one of four Houses at Iere. (The others are: Lute, Grant and Wagar).

    Clifford eventually moved to Brandon, Manitoba, where he taught until his retirement. His passing closes a historical era in the story of the Naparimas.

    Clifford was the brother of NAAC Life members, Winston (deceased), Phyllis Ramjattansingh (deceased) and Pamela Alleyne, who resides in Mississauga, Ontario.
