A question about the School Song from Mark Arundel

Can anyone tell me what the ‘school hymn’ was? I need an inspiring no. whilst I’m singing in the shower! Was it ‘He who would valiant be’?

The School Song had been discontinued by the time I went to Sutton so I can’t help beyond telling him that it was not He Who Would Valiant Be. Can you help?

Is there an actual recording of the song out there somewhere?

These words from the school song seem very apt:

“We raise thanksgiving

For those who went before, and, passing on,

Pointed our way of working, playing, living.

Still their tradition stands, though they are gone.”

With many thanks to John Fairweather-Tall for his help in compiling this list.

Downloadable Bulletins Removed from the site

http://www.oldsutts.co.uk/bulletin.html

Pending discussion at the next committee meeting re personal information and the Association’s obligation to be in compliance with the Data Protection Act it has been decided to remove this facility. Once we have addressed the issues concerned I hope to see the return of the downloadable Bulletins.

David Gillard: an update

You ought to read this first.

I sent a copy of Mr Gillard’s email to Rev John Fairweather-Tall more in hope than expectation. Finding a copy of a poem written by a schoolboy over 60 years ago was bound to be a fruitless task, wasn’t it? No hope at all, really, is there?

(I’m sure you’ve guessed where this is going by now!)

I’m making this blog entry moments after checking my in-box and noticing that there was a response from John. Well he has come up trumps and here’s the poem as published in the school magazine in July 1947!

DR Gillard prize-winning poem

Simply incredible!

What would be even better would be discovering a little more about Phillip John Eveleigh to go with it…
