James and June Clark
James Clark was in the Pre-Prep for one year. He came to have a look at his old school, with his Grandmother, June Clark, when they popped into The Mitre. June was doing her student teaching at the Prep, when she married Doug Clark (Bishops staff 1953 - 1988). Many ODs will remember June giving swimming classes. Doug's father was an OD, and his sons Paul (1983O, and James' father) and David (1982O) are also ODs. We could thus show James, who matriculated from Bridge House School, that he had many Bishops connections. Previous newsletters have acknowledged June for her generous donation of some of Doug's books, now stored in the OD Boardroom (see photo under 'Donations'). It is another connection for James to the ODU!
