Re: It's time for Sillett, Cairncross and Poulton to comment.

I noticed that the fate of three Yemeni gentlemen was also posted on the same day in the Mail a few pices below Karim's report. Different approach and homicide also involved, but in some countries rape carries much harsher penalties http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6042533/Three-paedophiles-s...

Re: Bishop Peter Ball and Christ's Hospital

Ball did my confirmation in 1981 if I recall correctly. At that time the 3 Chaplains were Robson, Atkinson and Godfrey Hall. Robson went off to Wellington to join Newsome and Atkinson and Hall were then joined by Porteous.

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

:lol: Richard! Actually looking back on it, I am sure the role affected my A level results as I bombed German. Globally it was a PR role and there were fun parts like going to Amicable Socitey of Old Blues dinner; having numerous dinners at "the House" with VIPS who came to the school; singing every...

Re: Did monitors have any real use?

Interesting new topic. During my time (1978-1984) the Junior House monitors supervised prep mainly and reported you or "sent you down" if you talked after lights out! In the Senior House the role was more important and incorporated getting both dorms up after the rising bell, leading the houseto bre...

Re: On a happier note: The Good Teachers!

There is already a posting called Favourite Teachers on this Forum and so maybe this new thread is doubling up what has been said unless and being pedantic there is a difference between a good teacher and favourite one :P

In the 80s you could choose your Senior House in theory but you did not always get it!

Oh dear..here we go again.

Another round of negative publicity though this time concerning pupils. All rather sad and disappointing.

Re: Allegations of abuse in today's news

Terrible publicity for the school and in the press reports I read; they all mentioned that school fees were 31 500£ a year and no mention of the charitable side.

RICHARD "Killer" FRY RIP

I read with sadness in recent CHOBA newsletter the news of Killer Fry's passing. Much has been written here on his heroics in WW11 and his Military Cross.

I will remember him as my LE Biology teacher and of course the best Hall Warden ever! A gentleman and one of CHs finest. RIP Sir.

Re: Derek Baker

I was equally surprised to see the news and yet none of it anywhere else. Baker was my headmaster and appointed me Senior Grecian and put me up for the Morehead Scholarship, so I have much to thank him for. I think he had a rough ride as Headmaster and no doubt had issues on the "merger" as he left ...
