The Class of 2007


This is number 2 - the second unofficial yearbook for all who are leaving Ffynone. Once again, you were invited to comment on memories and future aspirations, with some extra bits thrown in from the lower sixth who still have another year to go. It's the same kind of layout as last year with photos and space for autographs at the back but the important thing is about what is written down inside. The yearbook is for reading, keeping and remembering. The words are all your own and I hope you enjoy it.

Mike Boulding

Where have the years gone? This feels like the end of an era. I have known many of you since your early days in Oakleigh when you were sweet, cherubic little darlings - what went wrong? Seriously, I will really miss you Year 13 for your kindness and loyalty to me and to each other and for your irresistable sense of fun. You were fantastic at fundraising, prodigious in Pop Idol, dynamic on D of E and perfect as prefects. I will be thinking of you and wish you all the very best in your exams and the future. The world awaits you. Take care and be happy; always. Rachel Palmer

Well, it's time to fly the Ffynone nest. May your horizons be wide, your ambitions limitless and your bank balances healthy. Clearly, given this advice, none of you will become teachers ... Anyway, goodbye and good luck!

Simon Phillips
