Founders Day Dinner 14th March 2014 

Dear Old Boys,

Please find attached this link to a flier for the Founders Day Dinner organised by the Parents Association and to be held at the school on the 14th March, rather than have too many events we will not be holding the bi-annual Old Boys dinner this year but this event is a good opportunity for us to get together, have a tour of the school and meet old and new faces.

I hope you will be able to come along, please contact Mike Davies using the details on the Flier, to book your place, but please don’t hesitate to contact me if you prefer.

I promise the ‘18 Month late’ Newsletter will be out this month along with a current one. 

If anyone has any news or stories they would like to share, please contact me on 07831 367855 or s.drury@btconnect.com or at 48 Foxley Lane, Purley, CR8 3EE.
