29 June 2017 - Foundation Day for Devonshire Society members and benefactors

The College welcomed members of the Devonshire Society and other major benefactors to the annual Foundation Day on Thursday 29 June.

Foundation Day is the opportunity for the College to say thank you to those generous donors who have pledged to leave a legacy to the school, and others who have already made substantial contributions.

Following a service in Chapel, the guests were treated to a drinks reception in the Warren Atrium of the Nugee Building, with musical accompaniment from College pupils under the guidance of Director of Music Dan Jordan.

Lunch followed in Big School, with a welcome speech from Chairman of Governors Philip Broadley. Later Head of School Walter Huchu spoke about his gratitude to those benefactors who provide bursary funding to allow pupils like him to have opportunities to excel at the College.

The day finished with a guided tour of the facilities in the Nugee Building, the first phase of the Project 150 development, followed by a chance to watch the 1st XI take on the MCC in a cricket match on College Field.

Some pictures from the lunch are carried below.
