Richard Browning from the OCC Committee attended the annual Leavers Party on a superb evening which was held outside the new cricket pavilion.
Apart from live music and refreshments including a hog roast dinner, the proceedings were in the capable hands of headmaster Nick Dyer who was ably supported by Sue Wales.
Most people present appeared to represent the Crypt School PTA who are so supportive of the school and raise considerable funds which cover the valuable extras enabling the school to continue to provide excellent all round experience for the pupils.
It was good to hear more about the school rugby tour to SouthAfrica which is happening soon and the recent visit to the school of the Gloucester Rugby head coach Johan Akkerman and Nick’s speech was very supportive of the role of Old Cryptians, including the annual awards to students provided by the Bursary. The committee plan to provide more representation at next years event.

Founders’ Day Dinner 2019
Following the very enjoyable and impressive service in the cathedral, the dinner took place in the Parliament Suite, along the lines of earlier years, with 53 attending a buffet meal. The lack of numbers was slightly disappointing compared with other years but people seemed to enjoy the evening.
As well as celebrating the founding of the school, the dinner is used to handover the presidency of the club. We were able to reflect on a successful year in office from Jason, who has set in place the revival of the much missed Cryptian magazine, delivered a succession plan for future presidents and planted the seeds for defining a purpose for the club in the future.
The headmaster once again gave an overview of the considerable achievements that the school can lay claim to over the current school year and outlined exciting plans for the future.
