This week: Geoffrey Fallows, Summer Fair
It is with great sadness that I must inform you that Geoffrey Fallows, who was headteacher of The Camden School for Girls until 2000, died last week. Mr Fallows was appointed as a classics teacher in 1975 and went on to become Deputy Headteacher before taking on headship. He saw the school through periods of great change in education, and always demonstrated the highest commitment to the success and welfare of our students.
We last saw Geoffrey at our 2018 Founder’s Day celebration, and I hope you will appreciate seeing this lovely photograph of him at the commemoration.
I will write a fuller tribute to Mr Fallows in due course. In the meantime our thoughts are with his family, and with all who knew him.
A huge thank you to CASCA for making this year's Camden School for Girls Summer Fair such a success. It was a thoroughly enjoyable occasion, with a friendly and welcoming atmosphere and plenty of activities for all age groups. The food and drinks were delicious, and it was wonderful to taste a range of tasty home-cooked items, or fresh food prepared on site. The CASCA team and schoolkeepers had worked incredibly hard to make the space available at the front of the school really welcoming, and many visitors said they thought it worked better than using the courtyard.
As always, the Battle of the Bands was a real magnet for students, as was the bouncy castle, and the silent auction, tombola and raffle did brisk business. Thanks to Mr Byers, Ms Gordon and Martyn Gerrard for their contribution. It was lovely to see students running stalls as well. I went home sporting some very shiny and glittery tattoos!
A great deal of hard work goes into making such a successful event, and this is very much appreciated by the school. Parents have given freely of their time and expertise to make it happen - thank you all very much!
Many thanks as well to all who came along to support the occasion.
