'The "old Collegiate boys" have shown by their subsequent careers  in life, that the Collegiate did much for them. They are to be found now in many parts of the world, in all the professions, and engaged in all forms of business. If even those only that are still alive and in Jamaica could be got together, and were to stand up in presence of the largest assembly that could be convened in one building, "the old boys," would tell in an effective manner what one good school could do in thirty years to provide a country with men to do its hardest and most difficult work.'

Rev. William Gillies, Journal of the Institute of Jamaica, 1895
