ALUMNUS PLANTS A TREE IN SCHOOL IN MEMORY OF HIS BELOVED MUM

Old Bonaventurian, Sir David Amess, came into school today to plant an olive tree and place a plaque in honour of his mum who died last year aged 104 years old.
Sir David, who is an MP for Southend West, stays in regular contact with us and thought it would be a fitting tribute for a tree to be placed on the friary lawn in memory of his dear mum, Maud, who was a local parishioner¬† at St Antony’s for many, many years.
Sir David, 65,¬† lived in Plaistow when he attended St Bon’s and says he has many fond memories of his time spent as a schoolboy here.
