Publication of a very special book by OF

Gallipoli book cover
Chris Shaw (K50-56) has published another book but this is not your average paperback.  “Echoes of Gallipoli: For those left behind” is a story about a young Australian going off to WW1 with a couple of mates, being sent to Gallipoli, and being killed there - as happened to thousands in real life.

Whilst Chris could have published via e-books or as a paperback book he was inspired to publish very differently.  Read Chris's full story of the book by clicking here.  Chris has kindly donated a copy to the College Library.

The Society's Moreau Leaving Scholarships, now in their seventeenth year, are as hotly contested as ever, and the selection panellists, under the chairmanship of David Mallett, were hard-pressed but ultimately unanimous in selecting Satine Margaryan and Tamsin Holmes as this year's winners. Satine and Tamsin received their awards from Susan Wessels at Speech Day on 2nd July.

You can learn more about Satine and Tamsin on the Scholars Page of the Moreau Scholarships section of the website.

OFGS Spring Meeting 2022

Golf Society Logo
The OFGS Spring Meeting took place in beautiful spring like weather at Bishop’s Stortford Golf Club on Friday, 6th May. This was our second visit there and attracted a field of 18 players. This was a rather disappointing number, but some of our usual regular players were unable to play for various reasons. We were pleased to welcome Nick Gandy, Director of Sport at the College. Unfortunately, Neil Jackson was unable to play at the last moment because his car and clubs were stolen from his driveway overnight.
