The latest news from the Old Pauline Club

July 2017 - Old Pauline Newsletter
Welcome to the July issue of the Old Pauline Club eNews
As another academic year draws to a close, we would like to thank all of those who have made 2016-17 such a success. Whether you helped us run a reunion event this summer, organised an international group, volunteered on a committee, participated in a sports team, helped us organise professional engagement or were a speaker at any of our events, the Club has really appreciated the effort and expertise you have put in.

We welcome another 201 OPs to the community this month, bringing the total number of OPs to almost 10,000. We asked this year’s leavers for their career ambitions, which ranged from journalism to law, venture capitalism to joining the diplomatic service – these boys are ambitious! Please look out for our increasing numbers of professional engagement opportunities over the next year, for which your contribution might make all the difference to these new OPs.
Spotlight on Rob Smith

This month the spotlight is on Rob Smith (1981-86), the incoming OPC President. Rob joined St Paul’s in 1976 as a Colet Court pupil, moving to the Senior School in 1981. He became the Golf Club Representative for the Old Pauline Club in 2003, where he was involved in the setup of the Old Pauline Business Network, and was approached about becoming the OPC President by Sir Nigel Thompson KCMG CBE (OPC President 2015-17) in 2016. Read more on how Rob will settle into his new role, which begins this month, here.

On 25 April, four pupils from St Paul's Juniors were lucky enough to visit Lord Robert Winston in his office at Imperial College London. The interview, conducted by Nikolas Boyd-Carpenter, features in the latest edition of the St Paul's Juniors magazine 1509 but OPs can exclusively read it here.

The New Kayton Library

As Phase 1 of the new General Teaching Building progresses, we are excited with our preparations to move the Library into the new building, which will be split across two floors and overlook the Thames. For over a century the senior school library has been called The Walker Library after the great late-nineteenth-century High Master, Frederick William Walker, because a memorial fund was created to provide a second library in his name at West Kensington. Read more
