Seven months into retirement, former principal of Harrison College, Winston Crichlow, is dead.

Reports are that Crichlow died in Barbados yesterday, one day after returning from the United States where he had undergone a medical procedure.

The highly respected mathematician, who spent the last ten years as principal of Harrison College, retired from that position in April. At retirement he offered himself as a consultant to the Ministry of Education to help to raise the level of mathematics across the island. At that time he said he wanted to work with the ministry to find a solution to the “vexing problem of poor mathematics performances”.

Crichlow, 61, began his teaching career on September 1, 1971, spending 28 years at St Leonard’s Boys’ School and four years at Queen’s College before moving on to Harrison College.
