23 June 2018 - Foundation Day guests are welcomed to the College

Headmaster Tom Lawson and his wife Jess were delighted to welcome guests to the College's annual Foundation Day on Saturday 23 June. Foundation Day is the College's way of saying thank you to generous benefactors and members of the Devonshire Society who have pledged to leave bequests to the school in their wills.

The day started with a service of thanksgiving in the College Chapel, followed by a Champagne reception in the Warren Atrium of the Nugee Building. During the reception, guests were treated to a variety of musical delights provided by current College pupils, which were greatly appreciated.

They then moved to the Christopher Kirk-Greene function rooms in the Winn Building to enjoy luncheon. Upper Sixth pupil Eleanor Chapman (Blackwater), the current beneficiary of the Trevor Pescud Award, spoke about the opportunities she has had in her two years at the College and about her plans for the future. She also thanked, on behalf of all recipients of bursary and scholarship funding, all the guests for their generosity.

Following lunch, a number of attendees took advantage of the chance to have a guided tour around the Winn and Nugee buildings, which make up the Project 150 development.

Some pictures of the day are carried below.
