Welcome from the President

It’s great to see College energised by the return to normal routines post Covid. You will see from this publication and other communications that College is in rude health across many dimensions. Speech Day was a stirring event and a great celebration of individual and school success.

The Cheltonian Society has equally been catalysed with the opportunity to reboot the events agenda so that members and Old Cheltonians in particular can get together, refresh relationships and re-engage with College. Two new ‘event- types’ were introduced for OCs who left just five years ago and another for those who left 50 or more years ago. Both young and old attended in strength and with enthusiasm.

Much of the success of these and other events was down to Sarah Thompson from the Society office. Sadly, she has decided to move on to new pastures. Thank you, Sarah, for your commitment and positive attitude, especially over the last few years.

The Society website has been refreshed and a new contacts management system introduced. The latter will enhance the Society’s ability to offer professional networking services moving forward. Please take a look at www.cheltoniansociety.org and create an online profile.

Best wishes and enjoy the read.

Mr David Stewart (OJ & H, 1978, past parent, current Council member and President of the Cheltonian Society)
