Opening Ceremony for the Vafeas "V" Block Extension to the School

(proposed event)

Date and Time to be announced - anticipated in June 2024

The new substantial extension is due to be handed over to the School in May 2024, although ancillary building works and relaying the Lower Field will go on late into the Autumn.

The new block is to be known as the Vafeas, or "V", block in memory of Headmaster Harold Vafeas, who was taken ill in service, and who passed away in January 2014 

A formal opening ceremony is being considered for the summer of 2024; most likely in June.

If the event goes forward, OBs will be welcome to attend and more details shall be published on the website when known.
