Year 9 trip to WW1 battlefields

The whole of Year 9 will be visiting the battlefields and war graves at Ypres in June. This will be take place over two days, the 11th and the 18th. There are a few places on each day for old Harveians to join these trips. Please contact Phil Harding for more information
phil@ksfa.freeserve.co.uk

Can you help the Harvey?

In his introduction as the new Head at the Harvey, Scott Norman said ‘if there are any Old Harveians who feel they
are in a position to contribute in some way to the School or its students, such as coming to the School to speak about a career in a particular area, or are in a position to offer work experience placements, then I would be delighted to hear from you’. Scott is very keen for the current students to benefit from the ‘real world’ experience of us old boys. If you would like to be involved in this
way please contact Phil Harding initially phil@ksfa.freeserve.co.uk

from Phil Harding…

Old Harveians will be pleased to hear that the School has been successful in its bid for a new building. The government has granted the Harvey £2.4 million for a “state of the art” 12 classroom facility which will replace the ageing current Maths block – a temporary building erected twenty years ago. Work will be starting in August and the project is due to be completed by this time next year. The new building will be sited towards the Cherry Garden Avenue side of the site and will be a huge improvement for the School.

Old Harveians ‘Beer in London’

At long last, the next London beer is May 15. Due to a lack of inspiration on my part venue is probably Betjemans at St Pancras again. Usual format, very informal, no booking. Just come along any time from 5.30/6pm. Meet other old Harveians, share memories, have a laugh, maybe a bit of networking and a beer or two. You may even bump into an old friend that you haven’t seen since you left the school. It has happened!

For more details phone me on 01233 500464 or e-mail Mark@AshfordExecutiveCars.co.uk . If you can’t find us at Betjemans call me on my mobile 07939 101065 – don’t just walk away.

Alan Philpott & John Botting

Timothy L’Estrange posted this on Facebook recently

‘Following the sad loss of both John Botting and Alan Philpott last year I couldn’t help noticing that they sat next to each other in the school 1980 group photo. Close up section attached’.

A request from Phil Harding

Over the past few years it has been interesting to see how social media is enabling Old Harveians of all ages to re-unite with former schoolmates and to re-connect with the school and their schooldays.

The Harvey group on Linkedin.com has over 500 members and the one on Facebook nearly 200 whilst the Old Harveians Association (www.oldharveians.org.uk) has over 1,100 members. This makes the OHA one of the most successful school alumni associations in the country.

Over the years all old boys will have benefitted from the OHAs fund-raising activities and support for the school. In the past two years the OHA has paid for a new minibus and contributed to the costs of new lighting and sound systems in the school hall. This year, the OHA is marking the 100th anniversary of the Great War by supporting the Year 9 trip to the battlefields and war graves of the Somme, where many former Harvey pupils fought and paid the ultimate sacrifice.

The OHA organises sporting and social events throughout the year culminating in the Annual Dinner at the school each December. We also produce a professionally-printed newsletter at least twice a year that is sent to to all members. The current edition features special tributes to Alan Philpott and John Botting, both of whom sadly passed away last year.

A cornerstone of the OHA finances and our support for the school is the annual membership fee. Due to the number of members this remains very low at only £10 per year. Many members of the social media groups above are already members of the OHA. However can I ask those of you who are not to consider joining the Old Harveians Association? The extra fees from new members will be a very important contribution to further supporting the school and its pupils in the current difficult economic climate. Fees are collected once a year in January so the first contribution won’t be until January 2015

A Membership Application Form  is available by contacting me on phil@ksfa.freeserve.co.uk and I very much look forward to hearing from you.
