School's long history celebrated
On October 3rd and in a service which happens every year at Holybourne Church, Year 7 students remembered their founder, a local farmer named John Eggar.
Under a Trust Deed dated 21st March 1638, Eggar realised his idea of providing a school to serve the needs of its community. The first Head Teacher was appointed in 1642 – the date that appears on the school badge and which is proudly displayed on the current Eggar’s School blazer.
The Year 7's walked in a crocodile to Holybourne (another tradition of the day) and then enjoyed a lovely service led by the Reverend Chris Bradish. The whole service helped the students really appreciate the long history of their new school.
The Palatine Hill is the centremost of the Seven Hills of Rome and is one of the most ancient parts of the city. It stands 40 metres above the Roman Forum, looking down upon it and upon the Circus Maximus. From the time of Augustus, Imperial palaces were built here. https://t.co/pOiISv7ogR 3:56 PM - 20 Feb 2019
