Reception at the Cabinet Office


Sir Gus O'Donnell, our newest (if not our only) Salesian Knight of the Realm, held a reception for family and friends in the Cabinet Office in Whitehall on Friday 25 November. Guests included academic and sporting colleagues from his wide

range of interests and many of the Old Salesians FC Veterans team for whom he plays most Sundays.


In his informal review of how he came to be standing on a desk overlooking Horse Guards Parade, Sir Gus was kind enough to commend to all his guests this year's Salesian Past Pupil National Appeal to combat child malaria. The Appeal

poster was even displayed on the Cabinet Office door. There might be one or two people with money or influence who see it!

The guests were then treated to a rousing rendition of the Salesian School song (definitely a first!)

[Editor's note: You can download a copy of the Salesian School song in PDF format (25Kb). If a top 'E' is a little cruel for a morning rendition try the Lower Version in A.]
