Binding the past and present for
the future
Penny Tyson

    n a unique and visionary bid
    to bind the entire, extended
    school family together, St An-
drew’s College recently opened the
Andrean Resource Centre as part
of an educational and informative
tool for the school.
    Situated in the oldest room in the
school, the ‘living museum’ will be a
place which celebrates the history of
the school and its traditions, and will
serve as a welcoming environment
for boys, Old Andreans, staff, parents
and all those interested.
    It is intended to be a ‘living’ area;
not simply a room filled with displays
and archival records, but a dynamic
teaching facility and a place of reflec-
tion, of creativity and sound learning.

LONG WAIT... Ingram Reed waited almost fifty years for the return of this spanner, and now finally
he has it. His late cousin, David 'Dikkop' Reed, lent the spanner to a Mr Brown who lives near
Kingswood College in 1961. Mr Brown frequently told Ingram Reed that he would return the
spanner to him because the rightful owner had passed away at the age of 26. Almost unbelievably,
this week Mrs Brown brought the three-quarter inch spanner to a thrilled Reed. Photo: Steven Lang
