Class of 2004

On Saturday 01 June 2024 after the BishBosch game members of the Class of 2004 made their way to The Mitre Lounge where they would have drinks and a spit braai.  Nick Fenton-Wells and Josh Downs (both FH) asked the ODA who had been invited to attend to address them. 

It was great connecting and engaging, with the 2004s.  Among them were the players in the U15 side that undertook a rugby tour to Italy where they participated in an international tournament against Italy, Germany and Holland.  The touring party then went from Parma where they were stationed to visit the major cities of Italy. 

However, it was a great honour to spend this precious time with the ODs, reminiscing and enjoying the pleasant memories of their time at school and to hear how they were doing what ODs love doing ... connecting and engaging.
