Winners of the John Le Brocq Memorial Scholarship joined members of the Le Brocq family at a lunch on Sunday 12 June to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the annual prize.
John Le Brocq was a pupil at the College who died on 27 November 1980, aged just 16, of a brain aneurysm.
His parents Philip and Sally Le Brocq set up the award in his memory, and it goes to a current pupil who has made an unusual contribution to College life. It can be spent on anything, apart from eucational fees, which lifts and enriches the spirit.
The first award was made in 1982 and there are now 40 scholars. In Philip's words: 'Their letters and postcards during their year of scholarship, and often, many years beyond, have given us the kind of life support which only a regular transfusion of young enthusiasm and idealism can bring.'
A number of scholars, together with current and former College staff, attended a thanskgiving service in the College Chapel, before moving on to the Christopher Kirk-Greene function rooms for reception drinks and lunch.
