REMEMBRANCE DAY 2014

All alumni of Ballard School are invited to attend our Remembrance Service this year, during which we will be unveiling our own war memorial, where we list all those alumni who’ve given their lives in the service of their country.

This unveiling will be a particularly poignant occasion, bearing in mind the number of names that are listed on the memorial, incorporating ex pupils from Edinburgh House, Great Ballard School and Ballard School itself.

An address will be given by a acting Lieutenant Colonel.

Please let me know on mike.clifford@ballardschool.co.uk if you will be attending. Alumni will meet in the main foyer of the Main House at 10.30 on the day. I hope to see as many of you as possible.

CALLING ALL HOCKEY PLAYERS

Saturday November 29th is ‘hockey tournament day’!

This is always a great occasion. We won this tournament two years ago, and it’s really important we win it again this year. Matches are against Ballard staff, Ballard pupils and Ballard parents. It would be great if this year we could really show them, and put two strong teams out.

 

Lunch is in the Rising Sun immediately after.

Pass the word around, and let me know if you can play on mike.clifford@ballardschool.co.uk
