On Wednesday 6 February
2019, a number of Old Haberdashers who studied History A Level came back
to the school to talk to students in Year 11, the Lower Sixth and the Upper
Sixth. On small tables they met with current students and talked about their
career development and ways in which the study of History had helped them in
their chosen pathways. Present on the day were Old Haberdashers who have worked
in finance, in education, in law, in entrepreneurship, in government and
in military service.
It was a splendid occasion for
former students to catch up with the school, to receive a tour of our
magnificent buildings and grounds and to interact with some of our current
students who are making choices about what to study. The current students
found these conversations to be very beneficial and would like to thank the
former students who gave of their time so generously.
Present at the event were a
number of former school History teachers, including Keith Dawson, David
Griffiths and Roy Sloan who led the History Department for several years and
cultivated in many young men a life long love of the past and the study of
History. We would like to thank Mr Llewellyn, Miss Caterer and the History
Department for organising this memorable event.
