This has been a year of quiet achievement for the Union. There have been several Year Reunions which were very successful. The Union has a new website and members are increasingly using it and contributing material to it. Several members have also offered to assist with career mentoring for current students of the school, giving the students the opportunity to find out more about their intended professions.
I’d like to thank all members for their support throughout the year, especially those who have contributed articles and stories to Gesta non Verba, and content for the website. In particular, I’d like to thank Michael Quinlan for his (and the school’s) continuing support, Robin Legge for her excellent role in co-ordinating this newsletter and maintaining contact with all members, and Edward Yuen for designing and maintaining the new website.
In the coming year, I hope the mentoring role of Union members for current students of the school to continue, and to expand, so if members are interested in playing such a role, please contact Robin Legge. Also, the Year Contacts play an important part in maintaining contact between members and the Union, so I thank all the current Year Contacts and ask all members to support their own Year Contact person, and I also encourage others to volunteer to be Year Contacts.
There will also be a few Union organised events next year, such as an opportunity in March to tour the school and see how much it has changed since you were last there, and a sports day. Keep an eye on the website and GNV for details, and I look forward to the support and participation of members throughout next year.
Wishing you all the best for Christmas season, and I look forward to seeing many of you next year.
