College was delighted to welcome Mr Guy de Villers to College as the Old Andrean in Residence for this week. Guy matriculated in 1996 from Graham House and attended his 25 year reunion last weekend.
Guy exuded a deep sense of appreciation for what he learned and experienced at College, and the great honour and privilege he felt it was to attend the school. As a school boy he immersed himself in the activities and flourished, leaving College with quadruple Colours (First Aid, Music, Chapel Choir, Dramatics), Honours for Service to the Arts, and Gold Presidents Award and he was appointed a Prefect in Graham House.
Guy is a teacher who has worked in the UK and is currently working in a school in Sydney, Australia. He is a composer and academic who is currently completing his PhD at the University of New South Wales. He also contributed to the 2020 OA video My LGBTQ++ History.
We are grateful to Guy for his honest and generous contribution to our schools this week. He has spent time speaking to boys in the Houses, at SCA, teaching music classes, at Prefects’ and Housemasters’ meetings, watching the Play Festival, addressing the staffs of College and DSG, and taking part in the Over the Rainbow Concert.
Mr Aidan Smith
