2014 Reception in Zambia

The Second Master, Mr Matthew Mostyn, together with the Director of Admissions, Mrs Ruth Hughes and St Mary’s Hall Boarding Houseparent, Mr Mark Hughes, OS, have just returned from Lusaka, Zambia, where they met with alumni, prospective parents, current and former parents and friends of Stonyhurst. An evening Reception was held on Saturday 6th July at The Intercontinental Hotel, Lusaka, where Mr Mostyn gave an entertaining and informative presentation on life at Stonyhurst, much enjoyed everyone, particularly by prospective families, and by those alumni who had not been aware of all the fantastic developments in recent years. The evening was extremely well attended by OS and their families, as well as by current Stonyhurst parents and students.  It was a fantastic opportunity for former friends to catch up as well as new friends to be made; and a very enjoyable time was had by all!

The 5-day visit was very successful indeed. Mr Mostyn and Mrs Hughes were delighted to meet with so many supportive families, and also to visit Lusaka International Community School; Baobab College, Lusaka; and Simba School, Ndola.

We would like to extend our thanks to all the Stonyhurst family in Zambia, whose generosity and support helped to make the visit so successful.
