It is with sad news that we learn from Julian Bridger that his father, MF Turner-Bridger (1942), a founding member of the OHA, passed away on 22/08/15. His funeral will take place on Friday 11th September at 11.45am at the Church of St Etheldreda, Fulham Palace Road, London
From the recent invitation from Richard Plemming:
There is always plenty of school news to tell you about, but perhaps the best way you can gain a flavour of the School in its current incarnation, apart from making a visit to us, is to read my May and July newsletters to parents which appear on our website, and if that’s not enough, my speech on Carthusian Day also appears here: www.charterhouse.org.uk/HeadmasterLetters
My last paragraph is simply to remind you about OC Day on 19 September. As well as this being an opportunity to visit the School and see old friends, there will be plenty of activities to enjoy including sports fixtures, exhibitions and a concert. The day will begin with coffee in Hall at 11.30am and a few welcoming words from me at 12pm and will conclude with a short service in the Memorial Chapel at 6pm.
We would be most grateful if you would let us know of your intention to attend, and how many guests you will be bringing with you, as this will help us enormously in our organisation of the day. A link to the online registration system and a draft programme, which will continue to take shape over the coming months, can be found on the website by following this link: www.charterhouse.org.uk/OC-Day.
Come and join other OHs on OC day. Learn more and sign up to attend on the School website.
