9 September 2017 - New parents meet the Headmaster at Eastbournian Society reception

Parents of pupils who have joined the College at the start of the 2017-18 academic year were invited to a reception by the Eastbournian Society on Saturday 9 September.

The event gave them a chance to meet members of staff, including Headmaster Tom Lawson, who welcomed them to the College community.

David Stewart, Eastbournian Society Director, then gave a short presentation about the society, pointing out the benefits to pupils of having access to an international network of Old Eastbournians able to offer advice on careers through the series of networking events held throughout the year.

He also talked about the social aspects of the society, including lunches and dinners, theatre trips, talks, walks and visits to places of interest.

All parents are automatically members of the society, as are former and current members of staff, Old Easrtbournians and others who support the College.
