John Onraet writes:
Following the July 2004 reunion we decided that we should try to enlarge the group and get as many alumni from a
class of 1969 as possible for a reunion in the summer of 2006, and so we did . . .
Ten OGs from the Class of 1969 met at the Marriott Hotel in Slough on 22 July 2006

As for me, I married a South African girl in 1975 and went on to have four kids. Two of them are in London, one
working as a Chef at the Oxo Tower near Waterloo, and the other is a professional Sound Engineer with Metropolis Studios in Chiswick.
My daughter is studying for a BA in Humanities at Stellenbosch University, a beautiful university town nearby. My youngest son has
another two years at high school to go.
I am currently the Director of Marketing of a large company which specializes in road surfacing materials
geographically spread from Zambia to Cape Town.
