As the Music School progresses, so the vision of a new Music School for the College is finally coming into focus. Alongside many other advantages that the Music School will bring, pupils will also benefit from state of the art recording facilities, enhancing and refining their performance techniques and of course recording them for posterity.
We were very pleased by the positive response to our initiative last June to develop the Brighton College medical network of parents, friends and Old Brightonians. I know that some of our current pupils have already benefited from their support, for which both we and they are very grateful.
We are always trying to improve the support programme we offer students for these competitive courses. On Wednesday May the 6th we are hosting a ‘Medical Conference’ at Brighton College. The event will comprise a series of talks from 6pm to 7:30pm. Here a range of doctors and medical practitioners will talk to our current Upper Fifth and Lower Sixth pupils who are interested in applying for Medicine, followed by drinks from 7:30pm in the Smith Café. We hope this part of the evening will provide an opportunity for pupils to talk informally to people who are in practice areas of particular interest to them and who might be willing to arrange short term work experience placements.
A memorial to celebrate the life of Richard W Lewis (BCJS/Chichester 1947-1959) was held on Saturday 11th April 2015.
The Memorial was be led by Father Robert Easton and we were delighted that many of Richard's family were able to join us from the USA as well as several Old Brightonians who were at the College with Richard.
The sun was shining as the first few intrepid OBs made their way up the stairs to find each other for Brighton Drinks on Thursday.
Huge congratulations to James Chisholm (Du. 2011-13) and the England U20 team who lifted the 2015 Six Nations trophy on Friday at Brighton's Amex Stadium.
We are sad to report the death of Eileen Wolley last Monday 23rd February. Eileen taught at the College in the 1980's and her husband Richard Wolley was acting Chaplain here also during that time. Eileen's funeral will be held on 10th March at 1.30pm, St Phillips, Uckfleld. All are welcome to attend.
Congratulations to Rod who graduated a Ph.D Doctorate at Flinders University of South Australia, having researched 19th century Cherokee Indian History.
After gaining a BA (in English Literature and History) and Honours (in why the Cherokees fought against themselves on both sides of the American Civil War) in the basic set times, Roderick took a little longer studying for his Ph.D, which resulted in his being the oldest Graduand in the University this year, at 76! Well done Rod, good to see your love for learning hasn't dwindled at all!
The Old Brightonians office is very sad to report that Edwin Prince (Du. 1945-51) passed away last Friday 10th April.
After graduating from Exeter College, Oxford, Edwin went on to become a barrister and a Master of the Bench. A cremation service is being held at 2pm on Friday 17th April at the Woodvale Crematorium, Brighton. All are welcome to attend.
Ron arrived at Brighton College in the Early 1960's as a day pupil in Leconfield, since graduating he has ended up on the other side of the world. He will be flying over from his home in Australia to join us at this year's Pioneers Club, so we are looking forward to hearing all the news from down under.
This April I will be running my first ever marathon. I am not a runner, so this is particularly a big undertaking for me, but I am doing it to raise money for Breast Cancer Care.
Breast cancer is now the most common form of cancer in the UK; around 55,000 people are diagnosed each year - that's one person every 10 minutes.
