Visitors to the School: 2015

A chance meeting

Martin and Simon
Martin and Simon
Last month we had the pleasure of meeting up with Gilbert Ho (96-98G), Tori Roberts (12-14F), Bernie Wilson (60-66B) and Mike Bowles (62-66B) for coffee and small tours around the school.

In June we were visited by Simon Baldwin-Purry (52-58C) and Martin Warren (54-60C) who had not seen each other since 1955. Simon regaled us with tales of his pet lizard which he smuggled into lessons. They both recalled when they campaigned in opposite camps on the balcony for the school elections, Martin for the Communist party and Simon supporting the right. Simon now resides in Malaga and Martin in South Africa.
If you are planning a visit to school, please do get in touch with us. If we have advanced warning we can supply the biscuits!
