Trinity News : November 2008
MAX BRAND From Whence Comes Such Another… Shakespeare’s oxymoron from Romeo and Juliet that parting is such sweet sorrow was given form and feeling on Friday September 19 when the Master of the Preparatory School, Max Brand, attended his final chapel service in that capacity. There was sorrow at Max's departure, and a grateful feeling of sweetness from the dedicated service he has given the School. Of the several farewells from various organisations which Max, with his wife Beth, as his helpmate, has received, this occasion must surely have been the most moving, as the boys to whom he has given such dedicated service paid a sincere and loving tribute to him. The singing by the lads of Max’s favourite hymns was heartfelt, the readings and prayer given by the boys were beautifully done, and each class presented him with a class-made card expressing their good wishes to him on his retirement. The Head Master, Mr Milton Cujes, and the Chaplain, Mr Stuart Smith, paid tribute to Max and a prayer for Max was offered, for which staff members joined the official party on stage. The company sang the traditional and moving farewell song Auld Lang Syne, followed by a hymn and the benediction, given by Max, and the service concluded with a touching rendition by the Trinity Singers God be with you, till we meet again. It was a wonderful service. Ron Ogier 4 TRINITY NEWS
