To write a foreword to the number of the Ashburian
dedicated to the Old Ashburians is an honour and a privilege
which is not easy to express. I know that I reflect the
feelings of all when I express their sincere appreciation,
and assure you that through the years we have watched with
great interest the growth of the magazine and have looked
forward to receiving our copies with all the school news it
contains. We wish it every success and the best of luck

do not like to miss an opportunity of reminding Ashbury Old
that, while the School appreciates their good will and
support, at the same time Ashbury is ready and anxious to do
anything possible to help Old Boys. We here believe very
strongly that our job does not end when a boy leaves the
School. We must continue to watch his career and be ready
to help and advise whenever we can do so to advantage.
There may be a number of Old Boys who, perhaps, are not
in touch with the School and its doings. To those I would say

Finally, may I put in a word about the School as I see
We have good buildings, playing fields and equipment
for the size of the School we aim at, but Schools do not
or fall by their buildings. It is the spirit that is in
them, and the results of their work which count. In this
respect I am very optimistic, as we have a very fine spirit,
among the boys and among the Staff, which has already
shown its influence both in the work and in games, and which,
as it spreads among Old Boys and other well wishers of the
School, will do great things for Ashbury.
