Trust Update - 13th October

Another year has flown by too quickly and as the school wishes the 2017 Matrics farewell, the ODU welcomes their newest recruits. 
At a welcome tea held  for the ‘Class of 2017’ Matrics,  Trustee of the Bishops Trust, Paul Burton (1984K) challenged the boys to give back to their school; a school that has not only been a part of their identity for the past 5 years but will continue to be for the rest of their lives.  He encouraged the boys to pledge support in whatever capacity they could afford and for this pledge to increase as they progress in life.  He advised that the fees already spent at Bishops, primarily covered teaching and operational costs and emphasised that little was left for the extras; extras that will continue to generate excellence for future generations; extras that will ensure that we produce leaders for a transformed society.
