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.

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.
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.
