Annual Dinner 2017

A message from Mr David Allen, President, HOEA

Dear Old Boys,

As promised at our annual dinner in March, the committee examined the responses from assembled attendees and the overwhelming opinion was to maintain the status quo with regards to the timing of our dinner.

Next year’s dinner will be held on the Saturday preceding Palm Sunday and will, therefore, be on Saturday 8 April 2017.

The committee has also been looking at organising another event in 2017 as it will be 40 years since the school’s closure. We thought this might be an open-type event, possibly with a cricket match and other attractions. Our thoughts are to organise this to take place in July. If you have any ideas, or would like to help, in this events organisation, please let me know.

Finally, we have been asked by Peter Gibbs, old boy and our auditor if we could advertise the following:
