My son Aaron Paul Jackson attended WEE WISDOM School off Collins Ave. in 1965-67 era, and by 1968 enrolled at ST. ANDREWS SCHOOL at what is CENTREVILLE HOUSE.
I would be pleased to provide my recollections . photographs and comments on this period of our lives, ( Nassau from 1964 - 72 )
before ST.ANDREWS SCHOOL moved to NASSAU EAST.
We lived for a time at the GROSVENOR CLUB which can be seen in your website, immediatley west of the ” school ” on Shirley St.
I was real estate manager at Hog Island ( Paradise Island )at that time and a frequent visitor of Sir Etienne Dupuch at the TRIBUNE OFFICE directly opposite the main gates of Centreville House you feature on this website.
Michael Paton ( Lennox Paton Law Firm ) also attended the same class as my son at that time.( 1967-68 ) I have quite a scrapbook of photos and momentos of that period.
My son also was a patient of Dr. Poad whose surgery office was on Collins just North of the current Chamber of Commerce and directly East of the St. Andrews School and sports field ,of that era.
I hope you will allow me to expand upon that historical, educational and inspirational aspect of the Collins legacy, including the ” Collins Wall ” and the storied past of stolen guinnepps and childhood michieff, by contributing to the website.
Congratulations on what you are doing and I hope to visit Nassau soon and see what the the results .
I continue to promote the Bahamas for real estate investment every day , and have close contact with the financial services and investment service providers in Nassau.
