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 Rev. John Fairweather-Tall for his help in compiling this list.
