I attach below some more photos taken at the Annual Dinner in January. Many thanks to Patrick Dowling of Rock Photography for his excellent photos as usual.
This year’s dinner was addressed by students, Mohomad Almassry and Zamir Faizi. Both came to the Row from Direct Provision having escaped terrible conditions in Syria and Afghanistan in very harrowing circumstances.
The audience of past pupils and guests present were extremely impressed by the courage and perseverance shown by the two young men. Their language skills and general presentation were a credit to themselves and the great care provided by Kate Byrne and her staff at the Row.
Times have changed, indeed, since most of the audience sat in the school benches but there is still a great sense of pride in the old school.
