The latest news from the Old Pauline Club

April 2016 - Old Pauline Newsletter
 
 
Welcome to the April issue of the Old Pauline Club eNews
“Believe me, my young friend, there is nothing – absolutely nothing – half so much worth doing as simply messing about in boats.” This famous quote from 'Wind in the Willows' could certainly apply to the OPs who have been in action on the water recently, either for the Boat Race, the Colet Boat Club or Sport Relief’s yachting challenge. And if rowing appeals to you, James King, Captain of the Colet Boat Club, would love to hear from you. Get in touch with them.
 
We have just launched bookings for the Annual Dinner. We are delighted to be welcoming eminent professor, medical doctor, scientist, television presenter and politician, Lord Winston of Hammersmith (1954-59), as our speaker.  Why not book a table with old friends, and also take advantage of the occasion to see all the new developments at the School?
 
The spring edition of the Old Pauline News magazine will be posted to you next month, so this is the perfect time to update your details. If you want to notify us of a change of address, or to tell us if you would prefer to receive an online copy

Sporting and relieved (to be back on dry land!)
As part of this year’s Sport Relief campaign, which raised over £55 million to help transform the lives of some of the most disadvantaged people both in the UK and across the world’s poorest communities, comedian Hal Cruttenden (1982-87) was one of six celebrities that swapped the comforts of the stage and studio for five days of nautical trials as they sailed around part of the UK, on the BT Sport Relief Challenge: Hell on High Seas.

Old Pauline Lodge
Many Old Paulines might not know that there is an Old Pauline Masonic Lodge.  We meet four times a year at the School in Barnes and dine afterwards in the Montgomery Room.  Membership is only for OPs and members of staff.  
 
If you are interested to learn more or hopefully to join, email our secretary Nigel Young or our current Master Paul Ganjou who would be pleased to provide a brochure and further information. Read more...
New York Lunch
Ten Old Paulines and Paulinas met for a fabulous buffet lunch at the University Club in New York on a balmy Tuesday in early March 2016.  As you can see at least one OP remembered to wear his OP tie (and, it turned out, OP socks!).
 
The next OP Club lunch is planned for early May, and we are working on the preliminary organisation of an OP Entrepreneurs Panel evening inspired by the same format recently held by the School in London.  More details to follow. Read more about the lunch...

National Schools' Rackets Win!
St Paul’s Rackets added another piece of silverware to its cabinet during the National Schools' Rackets Doubles Championships at Queens Club.

In magnificent form, Matteo Perper & Ivo Macdonald dropped just one game throughout the whole event to win the Colts U16 event, 4-1 in the final against a determined Wellington pair. This win saw St Paul’s take this title for two consecutive years, as Alex Engstrom & Nico Hughes won last year, establishing our dominance in the junior ranks of National Schools' Rackets over the last few years.

OLD PAULINE BOOKS...

Violence in the Skies, A History of Aircraft Hijacking and Bombing by Philip Baum (1976-80)

'Violence in the Skies: a history of aircraft hijacking and bombing' covers well-known incidents of the modern era, such as Lockerbie, 9/11, Metrojet and attacks by shoe and underwear bombers, as well as those from the heyday of terrorism in the skies, including acts perpetrated by Palestinian, Black Panther and Latin American revolutionary organisations.

From skyjacks perpetrated for financial gain to hijacks initiated by asylum seekers in search of greener pastures; from terrorist extravaganzas in front of the world's media to the actions of suicidal pilots - including last year's incident on Germanwings - hijacks and acts of sabotage are exposed in this startling and engrossing collection.

 
Democracy: A Life by Prof Paul Cartledge (1960-64)

'Democracy: A Life' provides a thorough, long-range comparison between ancient and modern understandings of "democracy". The book offers linguistic as well as historical and philosophical analysis of how democracy developed and incorporates new literary and archaeological evidence.


You can read the overview of this book and many more from Old Paulines on the Old Pauline Club website.
