Services to the School
Support for School
very important part of the Association's activities
is to provide support and funds for various projects
beneficial to the School.
These currently include:
-where KESOEA provide
panels to give all final year 6th formers experience
and advice in preparing for university entrance
interviews. This is regarded by the School as a very
valuable contribution to the success of our next
generation of Old Edwardians.
Final Farewell to School Leavers
-each summer when the
KESOEA President is involved and takes the
opportunity to explain the aims and values of the
Association and encourages future involvement.
Funding of the Fives Court,
decoration. The court is available for use by Old
Edwardians every Wednesday evening along with changing
facilities in the School gym.
Funding of and Involvement with School
-which has been
reintroduced by the Headmaster, Bennett Carr.
Work on the original Denis Dyson
-which is now located on
the roof just beyond his original classroom. It is
hoped eventually to offer this as a fully
operational facility for Old Edwardians stargazers.
-towards curtaining, mobile
staging and other equipment needed to maintain the
very high standard of School music and drama.
Annual Cricket and Rugby Team Shields.
-This major ongoing project
has involved historic investigation and the mounting
of shields on the balconies either side of the Levi
Fox Hall. The Association has so far funded all
shields for cricket from season 1893 to 1987 and
rugby from season 1895/96 to 1981/82. Further
shields up to the year 2000 will be completed during
the summer. Agreement has been reached with the
Headmaster to continue this work up to date.
Dyson "Look for the Stars" Wall.
-Very much related to the
Association's ability to fund projects are the
annual subscriptions. However, these alone are far
from sufficient and we now rely on this additional
income stream. For a donation of £150 you can
commission an individual inscribed brass plaque
mounted in the foyer of the new Denis Dyson Science
Building. The inscription, over 2 lines, can be up
to a maximum of 30 characters including spaces. It
can contain any dedication or simply your name and
years at school. Contact
David Young.The veneered board will
take up to 1000 plaques so please record your
support for KESOEA and the School for posterity!
For other general queries
and offers to get involved, do contact one of the
Association officers as detailed. Your active
support would be greatly welcomed.
