On Sunday 1st July 2012 The Fortescue House and The OWBA invite you to join in a farewell to Mr Chris Ponder who retires at the end of this academic year after many, many years’ service to West Buckland School. Chris has been involved in numerous facets of school life doing this time and it is hoped that many of you who have benefitted will wish to be part of this event. The format will be a short service of thanksgiving and celebration in the Memorial Hall at 11.30 followed by a light buffet lunch in The Karslake at 12.30. This occasion should provide many opportunities to renew old acquaintances and share valuable memories. If you have old photographs or other memorabilia that you wish to share with the assembled party, please feel free to take them with you on the day. To enable The School to make adequate provision for those who wish to attend, please let us know if you are coming using the form on our contact us page. We look forward to welcoming a large number of those who have enjoyed Chris’s company both in the classroom and beyond over the years. UPDATE: Farewell to Chris Ponder – 1st July 2012 We are now fully booked for Chris’s celebration. If you would like to be there, please reply using the form on the contact us page to see if there have been any last minute cancellations.
