Richard Challoner Alumni & Friends


Trains were disrupted, grit scattered across our roads, and the predicted snow came tumbling down. We enjoyed the snow flurry in London for a few hours last week but, like the mention of Bros returning to our charts, the excitement didn't last for long.

The prediction is for more snow before our winter is over, but weather forecasting in London is like predicting the outcome of Brexit. What we do know is that, according to the meteorological calendar, we have 25 days until Spring, and 54 days until the clocks change. More importantly, for the snow adoring skiers amongst us, it's 59 days until the School Ski Trip!

We found some old photos in the Archives from old Challoner Ski Trips and it seems a lovely time to reminisce.

Back in the 70s the School Ski rips were to Austria, organised by the Borough. In 1981 along came Mr D’Agostino who launched Challoner’s own ski trips to Italy with the enthusiastic support of Mr Humphreys and Mr Dwyer, and later Mr Steele and other courageous staff willing to give up their holidays to deliver a school trip like only Challoner staff do!

Challoner boys have been accompanied along the way by Coombe, Southborough and, of course, Holy Cross. And ski trips for old boys and staff began in the mid-1980s and have since become popular annual events. Do like and comment if you see yourself or someone you know in the photos. Perhaps you were one of the first to go when they started in 1972?
