BGS - 3 Peaks Challenge raising money for Cancer Research UK

Old Bordenians will be interested in the forthcoming challenge being undertaken by pupils and staff.  They are trying to raise as much money as possible for a charity which is very close to our hearts since we received the news about Harold Vafeas's (Headmaster) illness last summer (http://websites.bordengrammar.kent.sch.uk/site/index.php?option=com_rubberdoc&view=doc&id=427&format=raw).  If you are able to support this in any way they would be very grateful.

A move to the UK Paper clubhouse for the OBA annual dinner appeared to prove a popular choice with attendees, many of whom complimented the Association on the choice of venue and the quality of food and service.

Grave Irregularities

Mr. Bond proceeded with his work at the School.  Staff were recruited.  Advertisements placed in newspapers throughout the County brought in pupils, and the School roll rose.  Clause 51 of the Scheme required the Head Master to provide the Governors with a written report on the School's progress.  Mr Bond produced his first report, covering the year October 1878 to October 1879.
