Old Habs Magazine 1992 1993


  • Foreword to the Old Boys' NotesAs President of the Association, it is a real pleasure to write thisforeword to our magazine in its new and improved format. The old Boys'Notes have served us well through 181 editions and I know that thevhave proved an invaluable way of keeping in touch for OId Boys andfriends of the School throughout the world. Our aim now is to takeadvantage of changes._in printing technology to produce a better designedpublication, which will contain more news andbe easier to read. ThJnew editor, Simon Gelber, has taken on a major task. I know that he willwelcome contributions, comment and criticism so that he can make themagazine as contemporary and interesting as possible. our thanks ared_ue to Stephen Cronbach for his many years in producing the Old BoysNotes and for the firm foundation he has provided for his successor.

    The Association continues to enjoy an excellent relationship with theschool and we are grateful for the support which we receive from theGovernors; I(eith Dawson, the Headmaster; and Douglas yeabsley, theSchool Support Director. We are currentlv discussing with the Schoolhowthe relationship can be maintained ahd strength"ened by newfunding proposals, which will give all boys leaving school theopportunity of life membership of the Association and, at the same time,provide us with long term financial stability.

    we are delighted to see that the School continues to flourish, not onlyacademically but also illh. fields of arts, sport and community service.The schoo.l.qlay, 'Jwe]fth Night' gave us acting of the very highest classand the Middle School play, 'Teechers', showed that actors oI equalquality are coming up through the school.

    The latest phase of the school building programme was the completionof the Bourne Building l_?st year and ifwas a great honour to representthe Association at the official opening on 15th october by Her itoyalHighness The Princess Margar-et, Countess of Snowdon. Many Old Boyshave contributed to the cost of this major improvement to the school 'and those who have not yet been able io seeihe result are urged to findan opportunity to do so.

    Although many of us completed our education at westbere Road, beforethe school moved to Elstree, it is the school as a continuing communitywhich we hold dear and friendships made within that comriunity whichwe will maintain through the Old Haberdashers'Association.

    EditorialThis year sees the ninetieth anniversary of the School moving toHampstead and, remarkably, it is also now over thirty years since thesecond move in the century to Elstree. It is fitting, therefore, to reflect onsome of the occasions and personalities that have occurred during thisperiod, and at the same time emphasise the continuing and growingrelationship with the School which remains fundamental to ourexistence.

    Thanks are due to I(eith Cheyney and I(eith Dawson who have been sohelpful in providing the extracts from the first edition of Skylark and theold photographs of the School and the Staff. The Headmaster has alsocontributed an article illustrating the direction in which the School ismoving in its development.

    The format of the Old Boys' Notes with its wider range of articles,features and reports hopefully will be a more complete reflection of theactivities of the Old Haberdashers' Association. Similarly, the up-to-datemembers' list that forms the final section of the magazine should providea useful addition to the information available to members.

    Should you have any comments or articles that you may wish tocontribute for inclusion in next year's edition, please send them to theeditor, who is keen to include as wide a variety of different features aspossible.

    Finally a word of thanks to all those who have contributed to this year'smagazine, but especially to Nobbly Tanner who provides so muchdetailed information on all the year's activities and without whom thisjob would be so much more difficult.
