Maroon 2009

The Maroon was the original publication produced by the Old Bordenian Association.  The last edition was published and distributed to members in 2009.  Whilst it's passing was a sad occasion and was mourned at the time by many Old Boys, this unfortunately didn't extend to any volunteers to take over the production and editing of the magazine.  The website has now taken over as the communication vehicle for the Association, and I aim to add to the site as many of the old Maroon publications as possible over the coming months / years to ensure they are available to as wide an audience as possible.  I am starting with the last edition.  I will also add the contents of each edition on the website, separate from the pdf of the actual magazine, to enable any searches of the website (using the search box at the top right of the website) to find specific articles.

Old Bordenian on stage at Glastonbury!

If anyone wonders what happens to OBs that fail to pay attention in class, and you happen to be at Glastonbury this year, come along and see Barclay James Harvest on the Acoustic Stage on Friday 24th June. I'll be at the back of the space pushing up faders and pressing buttons as I'm their lighting designer for this event.

I can't promise wearing the OBA tie, but I'll try and write about it when I return.

Thanks

History 'O' Level paper - 1962

As we approach the end of the traditional GCE examination season, I thought it would be appropriate to reproduce a number of examination papers from earlier years.  These were published on the original website a few years ago, but were lost when we moved to the new site in 2013.  I have added the papers to the OBA Flickr site as it is easier to expand the papers to a legible size.
