I remember Demba Trade School. My father Manly Binning was a teacher there, especially when the exams were being held, they needed him the most at that time.

I remember Dorny, or Mr. D’Ornellas who taught there while I was working up in the Mackenzie at the RBC Branch, peiod 63-66. He was an excellent teacher and a very avid drinker. Also a great prankster. When drinking proved your manhood thse were the days I lived and survived in Mackenzie.
Great materail coverage. Brought back memories of life gone by.
Chow for now,

I grew up in Mackenzie as a Demba brat. I left at age 11 in 67. Those were good times.

I was born a mud head as a mackenzie Demba brat in 1952, have many fond memories the best child hood fishing piria, catfish off the farm trough or the docks at Watooka club. It is a shame to see how the place has deteriorated. But congratiulations on whoever is looking after the club aund pool.
Oh those lazy days around the pool with friends I still keep in touch with, now living in the 4 corners of the globe Japan, Brazil, Canada, Australia
Oh those beautiful sand hills hours of fun. May Guyana live on peacefully as the slow current of the demerara
