Old Harveians Annual Dinner….

The Annual Dinner was another huge success. Around 100 old boys and members of staff, good company and good food in the familiar surroundings of the school hall. The 1988 leavers had a big reunion to celebrate 30 years since they left the Harvey with two of their group flying over from the US especially for the evening. Our thanks as always to Phil Harding for the immense amount of work that he puts into organising this event each year.

Roy Dyche RIP…

From Justen Dyche
‘I am sorry to report that my Father, Roy Dyche, passed away on Sunday at the age of 76.
Roy was both a pupil and a teacher at the school and I know he had many happy memories of his time at the Harvey. He joined having moved from Derby to Folkestone midway through the 50’s, ending his time as a student as Head Boy in 1961. He went on to study at Keele University and spent time living and teaching in Africa, before returning to the Harvey as an English master for the first half of the ’70s. He took up writing and was a published author; later he taught at both Dover boys and girls grammar schools. In his retirement he worked closely with the charity Bees Abroad, returning to Africa to run a number successful projects to alleviate poverty in Uganda and Zambia. Roy passed away peacefully at the weekend and will be greatly missed by his family and friends’.
