WHERE IN THE WORLD IS
Meeting Alumni across the globe:
Alumni trip change
Pam Farmer, and Mike Hart on the
St. Andrew's School
trip from Rome to Sicily, Italy!
This trip will sell out
so reserve soon!
Since 1983, St. Andrew's School has been touring the globe. We had hoped to have enough folks to run a trip next summer but the timing was not right for most, so Sue McGann and Mike Hart and I are "getting the band back together". We will be taking the students, parents, and alumni on March 10-19 to see the sites of Rome, Pompeii, Capri and Taormina (we'll even take the Godfather tour).
If you would like to be part of this wonderful journey, follow the link below. There are plenty of adults already signed up so come along and enjoy the wonders of Italy.

Busy summer with visitors!
It was wonderful to have so many of you come back to campus this summer and bring your families. I appreciate the stories you have come back to tell and the love you have for your school.
I had the opportunity to go on vacation to Chicago and meet up with some alumni and then we had two get- togethers at Tara's Tavern in Matunuck. We will be holding one in Boston in November. Watch for more details. It is always great to see old friends.
We are gearing up for our 5th St. Andrew's Golf Classic on September 27th. We have 3 slots for foursomes left, so call soon if you are interested. We also have a
fantastic auction with many alumni donating some wonderful offerings. Thank you all! Check it out and bid often!
I am ready to welcome you back for a visit, lunch and bell ringing. We began ringing the Chapel Bell when I started, and it has become quite the tradition. The current students and faculty love it and they often come around to see who is here. So come home, we can't wait to welcome you.

I came to St. Andrew's School from Portsmouth High School in 1995. My parents felt that I needed to be in a more stable, structured environment where it was easier for me to focus on my schoolwork. I vividly remember being upset about leaving all of my public school friends. I didn't realize, at the time, what a unique and privileged opportunity I received. A bigger public school was great for me socially,
which I believe is priority number one for most teenagers. However, looking back I can see that I was just getting lost in the crowd. I always struggled with keeping up my grades, getting focused and above all, MATH! When it was time for me to attend St. Andrew's it took me a little while to understand what a special place it was. It took me time to get used to the fact that every teacher there was hand-picked because of their ability to see every student there as a unique, special individual and had the ability to
communicate with students from all walks of life. I was treated like a student with something to offer academically instead of just socially. I believe that the teachers took the time to get to know who I was and what my distinctive talents were, and then took that a step furthe
r and helped me cultivate those specific talents. I went from an underachieving student that didn't want anything to do with school activities to a student that won the Carrie Maren Waters Prize, which is an award for an all-around involved student who participated in sports, art, and was eager to learn!
During my two years there I remember I always gravitated toward the Art Department. It was honestly my happy place. I spent every single free period there that I could. I will never forget the seemingly endless array of high-quality art supplies and the wonderful and dedicated teachers. All of the different projects, different mediums and the tools that we were taught to use, gave me a major advantage for my college art classes and what I do toda
y. I remember having a guest artist and professor from R.I.S.D come in as a guest speaker and teacher for a day. I was so taken with her and her style of painting; I decided then and there that I would always have something to do with designing. It took me a while to figure it all out, but I started my jewelry company and named it Harrison+Pike. There is no question in my mind that St. Andrew's positively influenced the person that I am and what I do today.
Congratulations, Tiffany on being Alumnae of the Month.

More than 60 former players return to help
surprise St. Andrew's basketball coaches
BY MANUEL C. "MANNY"
Special to the Times
They may have been somewhat
suspicious, but Mike Hart and
John O'Shea both said they were
totally shocked when they entered
the Wharf Tavern in Warren Friday
night for a well-orchestrated, surprise
50th birthday party in their
"I really had no idea," said Mike
Hart, who together with John
O'Shea, have coached the St.
Andrew's School boys' varsity basketball
team for many years. "This
is great and overwhelming. We've
built a family at St. Andrew's, and
it's great to see all these guys
As Coach Hart explained in
detail, "It was shocking! I walked
into the Wharf Tavern tonight
planning on celebrating my two year
anniversary with my wife and
ended up getting surprised by so
many former players and friends
holding a surprise 50th for both
John O'Shea and I. What a great
night! Between the former players'
stories, plus Mike Raffa and Val
Webber roasting the two of us, it
turned into a very memorable
evening. A huge thank-you to Pam
Durant Farmer for organizing the
event and getting the alumni back
to the area, and to Joey Accaoui
and Eric Mack with huge assists in
Coach Hart couldn't get over the
number (more than 60) of his former
players who returned for this
special birthday celebration.
Included was Demetris Nichols,
one of St. Andrew's greatest players,
who went on to star at Syracuse
University, and later played

"It was great playing for both
Coach Hart and Coach O'Shea,"
he said. "You learned so much
from both of them. I'm happy to
be here tonight."
Eric Mack of Fall River, who
played point guard for St.
Andrew's from 1997 to 2000,
helped plan this special birthday
party with Pam Durant Farmer,
Assistant Director of Development
for Alumni Relations at St.
Andrew's School. He said it was a
thrill and gratifying experience
being around Coaches Hart and
"I learned so much about life, as
I did about basketball," he
explained. "Coach Hart gave me a
great foundation to build on."
Following the birthday party on
Friday night, the boys played a
special alumni game the following
day with Coach Hart and the
even-year grad players going
against Coach O'Shea and the
odd-year grads. In the end, the
Hart-coached team bested the
O'Shea quad, 81-65. MVP Bonzie
Colson scored 24 points for the
winners, while MVP Demetris
Nichols poured in 23 points for
the losing team.
Nichols played three years in
the NBA and then overseas, after
graduating from St. Andrew's in
2003, while Colson is currently a
junior and a rising star at Notre
Dame, after going to back-to-back
