If you haven't already done so, please complete and return the Booking Form, together with your cheque for £30 per person, made out to P.F. Khan-Panni.  You may, of course, add an amount for the school rebuilding fund.  Guests are welcome, but please PRINT  their full names on the Booking Form, and the same with your own name.

 

Fr Van has embarked on a major expansion of the schoolís premises, for the purpose of offering North Point education (and values) to a greatly increased number of students.  Costs are high, and cash is low.  Please help.

 

Fr Van intends to be with us at this Reunion, and I hope you will be able to join us.  I cannot think of anyone who has done more to take the spirit of North Point into the wide world.  He is the one who has inspired NP alumni groups in quite a few countries.  He has travelled all over the world, linking up with North Pointers in every country, and keeping everyone in close touch through his regular Newsletters.

 

Back in Darjeeling, he has transformed the school, meeting the challenges of the 21st century. Last winter he even threw open the school and its facilities to hundreds of local children who would otherwise never have the chance of walking through the twin towers.  We should support his magnificent efforts.

 

HILL SCHOOLS REUNION:  On Wednesday 10th March 2004 some 300 people attended the reunion lunch for those who went to the various hill schools in India.  The event is held every two years at the Clay Oven Banqueting Suites in Wembley, North West London.  There were about a dozen of us representing North Point.  I popped in briefly at the last one, two years ago, just a couple of weeks after my heart bypass op.  This time I came for the Burra Khana, and very good it was too!  The Darjeeling schools represented this year were North Point, Loreto Convent, St Paulís, Mount Hermon, St Michaelís anad New School.  From Kurseong there were St Helenís. Dow Hill, Goethalís and Victoria.

 

R.I.P.  You'll be sad to hear that Fr Eardley Macdonald has gone to the School in the Sky.  He was better known to our older brethren, but he did manage to attend recent reunions and meet some others.  I am also saddened by the recent death of Tom Bell, who was not a North Pointer but, like myself, went to St Michaelís, and was a charming guest at some of the North Point reunions.
