Falcons were fortunate to have former pupil Gus B and his current Reed’s classmate, Jason M-C, come to speak to the boys in assembly. Gus is amongst a group of young men from Reed’s School who are working alongside the Calabash Trust, helping to provide schools in South Africa with vital facilities. In the past these have included resources such as libraries, irrigation systems and sporting equipment and spaces to play.
Each of the Falcons boys received a bottle of water which, once drunk, Gus has asked them to fill up with any small coins and loose change over the next two weeks. Gus will then come back to collect the coin filled bottles and the money will pay for the materials and supplies that the Reed’s pupils need to help the schools when they go over to South Africa. They aim to raise £10,000 so any contributions will be gratefully received.
Gus has supported Falcons in various events since leaving for Reed’s in 2014, such as supporting at Sport’s Day, working with our boys in the classroom, refereeing Falcons 1st 13 rugby and providing invaluable advice to our upper school boys on what life is like at senior school.
