Old Diocesan Network
The NP OD Dinner was held at The Country Club Johannesburg on 8 June with 60 ODs attending, spanning the years 1953 to 2010. Guest speaker, Guy Pearson (Principal) spoke on the challenges facing Independent Schools in this era as well as updating ODs on the progress at Bishops. Simon Grose (1977F), our NP Branch Secretary opened the proceedings welcoming all and issuing rules for the evening with Grace (not in Latin!) being delivered by the youngest OD Christopher Church (2010G). The loyal toast and toast to Bishops was proposed by the most senior OD, Richard Clowes (1953G), with Kennedy Jimba (1990S) producing a highly amusing response on behalf of the OD Union. After being stranded in Johannesburg, on his way to Blantyre, Jonathan Dunn (1978F) made an impromptu arrival at the dinner. A pleasant evening was had by all and many new plans and suggestions were put forward for activities in the region.
