Welcome to the OSAF Website

OSAF3

Welcome to the website for the Old Salesians Association Farnborough (OSAF), an Association for all ex pupils and staff of Salesian College Farnborough, whether you are leaving in 2020 or were one of the post-war generation.

OSAF is an organisation that has existed for a long time to provide a connection between the school you attended, your friends from that time and today's modern Salesian College Farnborough.

Sport, nostalgia, friendship, charity, career support and networking lie at the heart of this Alumni and it belongs to you.We are very keen to ensure it stays relevant to all, especially those leaving more recently and actively seek volunteers to help us grow and develop in today's ever more-connected but at the same time fragmented world.

If you would like to help please contact us via this site. If you are not registered to receive our newsletters please use the register button on this site to do so.

John Milner 1949-1955

It is with great sadness that we heard of John's recent death.

John was a stalwart of the OSAF and responsible with others for helping to maintain the association over many years as well as always being supportive at times of change. Those of you who have seen the videos linked to from this website have done so courtesy of John who chronicled and edited many occasions on film.

John was at the college as part of the post war generation (1949-1955).

Both his children (John and Tom) also attended the college and we wish them and the family well at this time.

May he rest in peace.

Year 13s Careers Events & Mentoring

The school is currently closed due to the prevailing COVID 19 health crisis.Obviously this is challenging for all concerned, especially those planning the next stage of their education or careers.

Career development and advice about the next part of a student's life is a very big part of college life nowadays and with this in mind we are looking for expressions of interest in two activities planned for the Autumn of 2020.

There will be both an "interviewing"evening and the initiation of a careers mentoring programme, both for year 13s, and the school is seeking professionals from all sectors of the economy who may be able to contribute to one or both activities. This really is a vital activity where the Farnborough Alumni can help the next generation take their first steps into the world outside of rull-time education. You can volunterr your interest via the email on this website or directly with Isabel Cardona who is the Head of Careers at the school, This email address is being protected from spambots.

Annual AGM

Unfortunately it has proved necessary to postome the forthcoming 2020 AGM due to the Coronavirus pandemic.

The annual reunion, Mass and AGM will not take place on 26th April 2020. The event has been postponed to later in the year on a date which is still to be determined.

We hope that all Old Salesians and their families everywhere remain safe and well during this unprecedented time.

Thank you to the Old Salesians who recently contributed to the Sean Devereux Children's Fund "Road to Monrovia". This fundraising activity has so far raised in excess of £7500 thanks to the efforts of all who cycled (walked and rowed) a total of 4500 miles, the distance between Sean's home and the schools the charity supports in Liberia.

Full details can be found at www.seandevereux.org.uk, and you can still donate via that site.

**************************************

We would like to draw your attention to a fascinating series of videos compiled by John Milner. John was at the school in the 1950s and has chronicled many events since that time until very recently.

These memories can now be viewed at this youtube link,https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRH7yfLHPy4JEMomIMxwrIw  and John will be adding further films as time permits.

We are very grateful for John's time in both providing the original footage and converting them for the digital age.

Please do submit any photos or films you have so that we can provide them for the benefit of Alumni, old and new.

Finally, this website is for you to share your news and remain in contact. Obviously in the world of Facebook and Twitter there are many ways of keeping in touch but please do use this site as well.
