It is pleasing to see that John Billcliff and his wife Glenda will be making the trip down from Nelson for the celebrations. John was a master at Campbell House from 1967-69, long time Science and Chemistry teacher at OBHS, and a successful coach of the 1st Cricket XI for many years.

Also attending will be the well known Billy Trewern, who managed School House from 1980-84, taught Science and Physics at OBHS, and was a very successful golf coach for a number of years. Both gentleman are making a special effort to join us all on this special occasion.
