It is with great sadness that we have to announce the passing away of our former President and school headmaster, Harold Vafeas, on 25th January 2014, after a long struggle against cancer. The funeral took place on Friday 7th February 2014 at 3pm at Holy Trinity Church, Margate and was attended by many OBA Committee members, Governors, Teaching staff past and present , as well as several boys from Year 13.
Harold's family have asked that if anyone would like to make a donation in Harold's memory, it should go to the Pilgrim's Hospice. A JustGiving page has been set up for this purpose - www.justgiving.com/haroldvafeas
