The 5 a side league season finished on 9th May and culminated in the closest finish in the league for many seasons. 2nd to 5th were separated by just 6 points with the league winners having their lead cut from 15 points 4 weeks earlier to just 6 by the final whistle of the final game.
It is with regret that we have to report that Christopher Neil (Chris) Willson passed away suddenly at home on May 10 2013, aged 56. Chris left Borden in 1975 after taking his 'A' levels and went on to study at Oxford University.

We recently received the following email from Reg Hunn, a pupil at Borden from 1944 - 1950, triggered by the obituary of Frank Nicholls,providing an insight into life at the school and beyond 60 years ago.
In an idle moment today whilst at a loose end , and for an inexplicable reason, I decided to look up the school on the web.
On studying the site I noted with sadness the passing of Frank Nicholls a while back.

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.
Stephen Lynas has supplied us with a couple of photos from the Annual Dinner, held on 23 March, together with a school photo of the Form 5A in 1967. Amazingly, Stephen has also been able to supply all the names on the school photo!
