With the end of term and school year nigh, many students will be leaving for university or the big outside world where finding employment will be your main priority.  You may despair, when told that school or university days may prove to be the happiest years of your life! This could prove to be incorrect, but what is certain is that friendships made during these days will be amongst the best you will ever make and/or seldom equalled.  

The post school years will be the most hectic time of your lives; establishing a career or business, marriage, bringing up children, and so forth. Maintaining contact with your school friends will be difficult as they may well be scattered all over the World. It will take quite an effort to stay in touch.

Where contact is lost and you are in your later years, whilst waiting for Godot, or for dementia to strike, you will have time to cogitate and remember the good old days. Finding an old school friend, after losing contact for years, is a real delight. Learning the history of their lives, good fortunes and cruel twists of fate, is a rewarding experience.

To make contact with your old Brutonian friend, just email Emilie at She couldn’t be more helpful. If she has your friends address on file, she will contact them saying you are trying to make contact and give him or her your address. Not all will want to know you, but for those who do, it is will be an enriching experience for you both.

Emilie Head, OBA Assistant Secretary says "There are several ways you can get in touch with fellow OBs.  Members registered on the King's Bruton Community site are able to use the 'Network' tab to search for OBs in their house, year group or even current location.  If you can't find someone using this search function, it may be that they aren't registered, in which case please do email me and I will pass your details on."
