Old St Beghians in Asia
As you may have read in the President’s letter to Society members in the July 2016 Bulletin, an inaugural OSB Dinner took place in Hong Kong in January, organised by James Rebert (SH 91-98). Despite a modest turnout it was a very enjoyable event and an opportunity for a group of Old St Beghians based in Asia to share memories and reminisce.
On the back of this event, James Rebert, who organised the dinner, Laurence Gribble (SH 02-09) and Chris Ma (G 02-09) would like formally to establish a group for Old St Beghians based in the Asia region under the name, “Old St Beghians in Asia”.
As well as organising an annual dinner in Hong Kong, we hope such a group can connect OSBs in Asia and
reconnect those who may have lost contact since leaving St Bees.
We believe the group can provide a strong network for those who are currently studying and working in the region, and in the long term, we think the group could be very beneficial for whatever the future may hold for St Bees School.
Asia, especially Hong Kong and China, has played a vital role in the school. Many past students came from Asia and many others now work and live there. We would like to invite all Old St Beghians based in Asia, and even those in other parts of the world, to get in touch to help us build this group’s members.
We aim to hold an annual dinner in January 2017 in Hong Kong, to which all Old St Beghians, plus partners and family,
will be most welcome.
Please do get in touch.
