This is the 50th Anniversary of the opening of this building By Princ_. George in 1931. This remarkable structure, designed by a local architect and erected in the middle
of the Depression, reflects the imagination of the first Headmaster, Fred Whit_hoU8e. He believed that striking surroundings made a substantial contribution to a boy's education and, I am sure that generations of past pupils will confirm the delight they have enjoyed from this splendid site. The dignity and scale of the building has resisted the ravages of time and withstood the addition of bits and pieces provided to meet special needs.
I believe that we should combine in respect for our building. Ita integrity must be preserved and its beauty kept bright.. The Parents' Association has done much to secure the redecoration of Classrooas and each successful social event emphasises the exceptional quality of the Great Hall.
I hope that all boys, parents and friends will take a new look at 'the School on the Hill' and my endeavour to preserve it, not just as an architectural triumph, but as a fitting home for a lively and progressive School.
HEADMASTE_S NOTES

CCF NEWS ARMY SECTION
This has been a successful year for the Army Section with
a reasonable number of recruit., each eager to learn.
Lt Col Bird organised an enjoyable weekend camp at Crowborough, Sussex, where we had field-craft exercises. Two sessions were spent on the Camp's miniature range. and Hr Coltman organised some rock climbing.
During the first term, priority is given to getting each cadet through the Army Proficiency Certificates. We have had tremendous assistance from 7 Cadet Training in this, organising a weekend battle-craft course at St Martin's Plain. We were allocated 5 places on this and the
3 cadets and 2 NCO's who attended gained valuable experience.
We came a close second in the Inter-section Competition at RH Deal, although outnumbered by the other sectionsl
In early March we attended another training weekend at St Martin's Plain. This gave us an opportunity to put into practice all that the cadets had learnt during the winter months.
We are a small section, but this helps create a spirit of close teamwork and, hence, efficiency. Therefore, we are confident that any new recruits, whilst having to work hard, will enjoy cadet life to the full.
Sgt Chris Saunders
NAVAL SECTION
The last 2 terms have been a period of activity and change
for the RN Section.
Last May, we were affiliated to HMS Cardiff, a brand new Destroyer. Since then, close links have been forged between the Section and the ship. Cadets have twice been to sea in her. Last September, 3 cadets were lucky enough to fly out to the ship in the ship's own Lynx helicopter:
During the summer holidays, many cadets attended training courses with the Royal Navy, in subjects as diverse as climbing in Scotland, engineering and power-boating.
With the unfortunate illness of Commander Kaufmann, the leadership of the Section has fallen into the capable hands of Sub-Lieutenant Harrold, RN, the Assistant Supply Officer at m_ Deal. However, Commander Kaufmann is still in overall control, dealing with much of the administrative work.
The larger number of recruits this year, which has injected a new supply of potential leaders, offers a bright hope for the future. I am sure we can look ahead to an active and enjoyable term.

SECTION
"You're on your own, have fun:"
On Friday 13 June, an official-looking envelope settled
on the door mat and, despite the date, it contained very good news. It was from HQ Air Cadets, informing me that I had gained a Flying Soho1arship. Out of over 1,500
applicants, all seeking a career in flying, I was one of a mere 260 to receive an award, worth _1,2oo, which consisted of 30 hours flying, 10 of which would be 8010.
For a 4 week period last summer, I flew Cessna 152 air­craft and learned about meteorology, navigation, air law and even engines. Examinations in these subjects, all taught to Private Pilot level, were to count for 70% of the marks.
On Sunday 17 August, my instructor asked me to land the aircraft and taxi to the hard stand. There, he
unstrapped himself and alighted.
"Right then, one circuit. Remember your checks. You're on your own, have fun!"
After power and pre-take-off checks, I called the Tower and after permission to take-off, I pushed in the throttle. As the speed reached 65 knots I eased back the control column. The aircraft> gently left the ground.
Following that tremendous 1st flight, I spent a further
9 hours 45 minutes solo. After passing the exams, I gained my wings.
FIt Sgt Adrian Vine
This year the RAF Section has seen a dramatic increaRe in numbers. The Conti_ent now accounts for almost half of the cadets in the CCF.
As ever, the 1st term was devoted to routine training.
We held an overnight camp and night exercise at the beginning of October. Several cadets also spent a week­end camping and walking in France.
We go shooting regularly on the .22 Range at RM Deal and fly at RAF Manston.
Over the summer holidays some cadets attended courses. Cpl Bonnar and Cpl Lovett both completed proficiency gliding (including solo) at RAF Manston. The Cadet Leadership Course at Frimley Park was passed by FIt Sgt Underhill. FIt Sgt Vine completed over 30 hours of flyin_ at Southampton Airport, almost qualifying for his private Pilot's Licence.

HOUSE REPORTS I I
ASTOR
Astor House has made a good start to the year with our best performances being in football and basketball. The 1st years and seniors did particularly well in soccer, but less success in other years meant we came 2nd
overall. A good general effort in the basketball competitions placed us 1st. We were less fortunate in table tennis, coming a poor 4th.
We now stand 2nd in the House Championship and must do
our best to, at least, hold this position until the 1'" summer term when we should make a strong challenge _ the House title.
Richard Hopkinson, House Captain
PRIORY
Our 3rd position in the House Championship does not
reflect on the fine performances of individual teams. Mention should be made of the 1st and 2nd year football teams, and the 3rd year basketball players, who did much to help gain our position.
Enthusiasm and team spirit in the Lower School has proved. to be good throughout the year. However, some difficulti_" have been experienced in organising senior teams, but
rarely did this dent team spirit or affect performances.
'fhanks _o to Messrs Quinn, Carter, Benson, Francis, Wake, Lodder and Mr French, our House Master, for their help and encouragement.
Tony Hoy, House Captain
E!!!1:--'
Las_ tear started badly for Park House, having little
success in the soccer and basketball, with our only consolation being 2nd in the table tennis. Conse_uently, by Christmas, we were trailing in the Championship, and morale had fallen to the low ebb to which we had been accustomed in previous years.
However, after Mr Burton's end-or-term "pep talk" our fortunes changed, resulting in a clean sweep durirg the spring term. We were 1st in badminton, gymnastics, rugby and the Powell Cup cross-country, which put us well in the lead.
In summer term Park won the athletics and we were 2nd in both cricket and swimming. Our 1978-1979 championship victory was no flash-in-the-pan: Further evidence of this is our performance in Autumn 1980 which has established us as leaders.
We were an improved 2nd in basketball and outright table tennis winners. In soccer we won 3 of the 5 competitions. At the start of this term we had a 12 point lead over our nearest rivals: an indication of our intention to make 1981 113 in a row":
,J ohn Allingham, House Captain
FRITH
Overall this has been a disappointing term with little
commitment from house members and, consequently, poor results. The House has often suffered from a lack of depth of talent in many areas and this, matched with unwilling members and some indifferent performances, has left us last in the House Championship.
The only win in the senior competition was in the table tennis and junior members have given mixed results. To gain better results, House members have a great deal of work to do.
Andrew Harris, House Captain

A feeling of anticipation crept over me as I walked down the hill to the awaiting coaches. High spirited, and raring to go, we pulled out of Dover.
We were making good time until we hit London's rush-hour traffic. It was just our luck to be stuck in a jam for
at least an hour. Of course, London traffic has the
same effect upon all drivers, and ours was no exception. His face gradually turned from a placid, rose-red into
a seething mass of beetroot-coloured agony. It was a horror to see_
Eventually we reached Earls Court, to be met by a herd
of screaming kids, anxious not to move out of the way of our coach. After dismounting we were led into the vast hall. Our seats had a marvellous view and soon the show started.
The lights dimmed, the crowds were hushed, and on came
the Household Cavalry, with a spectacular display of horse manoeuvrability and control. It ended, much to my amazement, in disaster. Two horses collided, throwing their riders. You could have heard a pin drop. It was pitiful to see the poor horse, flat on its side, twitching. But the show must go on, as they say, and it did.
THE ROYAL
TOURNAMENT 1980
A succession of military acts, spectacle and pagentry followed: bands, even tribal dancing. Yet it is hard to rival the RN Field Gun Competition for thrills. Although this display is the same every year, it seems more exciting every time.
All too soon we reached the spectacular Finale and then had to face the journey home. We arrived at Deal sometime between 1 am and 2 am. I was too tired to tell, but looked forward to the next Earls Court, Royal Tournament.

CHOIR
St Paul's Cathedral
On Tuesday 24 June 1980 the School Choir sang Evensong
in London's great St Paul's Cathedral. The fifty­minute long service was accompanied by Roland Robertson, who had sat examinations at School that very morning.
After one and a half hours of practice in the afternoon, to get used to the organ and acoustics, there was opportunity to visit the Whispering Gallery and nearby precinct before the service began.
For making the day 60 special for all the Choir, thanks must go to Mr Boynton and Mr Taylor, as well as the Cathedral staff.
Tim Thorp (5G)
Christmas at the Castle
At the end of last term the School Choir took part in
the Queen's Regimental Carol Service in St Mary-in-the­Castle Church. The service, held on Thursday 18 December, was honoured by the presence of the new Archbishop of
Canterbury.
After the carols, at which the Choir excelled, everyone went across to the Keep for tea and cakes.

The year has not only been eventful but also very challenging for Dramatic Society, with a major change in style of production.
"An Evening of Drama" was the 1st drama "in the round" at the School. This new style of production posed its own special problems for the technical team, but these were overcome. The evening, played to a capacity audience, was very successful. Special thanks are due to Bill Marshall for his musical assistance.
Spring term has been concerned with the "Elizabethan Evening". This production seeks to recreate an evening's entertainment in the atmosphere of a grand Elizabethan banquet. Working with the Music Department, the many problems such a venture entails have been solved by the technical team. Members of the Society have taken part in the direction as well as the performing.
Amidst the ever increasing pressures of rehearsal for the "Elizabethan Evening" an invitation was accepted to repeat "An Evening of Drama", with changes in cast and format, at Deal. Despite the small audience and material changes
only 2 hours before performance, it was a great success. A further invitation for yet another performance has been received.
After the "Elizabethan Evening" there will, hopefully, be continuing growth in the community feeling between performers and audiences, as well as between the Drama and Music Departments. The general feeling is that the Dramatic Society is breaking new ground with confidence, and that the greater unity existing within the Society can only benefit the School.

A short Story
"Ah, Hr Houseman.

"Brian, George vi11 show you We have given

"

For some reason this turned Brian cold, but he fo110ved George to a flight of ancient steps. He began to olimb
them. His feet echoed around the hall as he climbed the, stairs. A musty, unused smell reached his nostrils."", Suddenly, a flow of sheer terror overtook him and he
awoke in a cold sweat.
On reflection, he knew he had never seen either the
people or the house before. What was it about the room in the Tover that was so terrifying?
For the _ext 20 years the dream haunted him, recurring every few months. FACh time there were slight differences. Yet one th!r_ _as always the same - the rush of terror as he mounted the stairs.
The family seemed to age with him. On one occasion the
family vas in mourning. The old woman had died. On his
_
8th birthday, he had the dream again, yet this time he reached the top of the stairs. An old, black door confronted him. Opening it he saw a small room, with a
\ indow overlooking the garden.. On a wall, above the bed,
was somethi

Phoenix Society
This last season has been a lively one for thJ*Stibiet1,
which continues to enjoy Mr Benson's organisat,"on snd the
hospitality of the Benson household, for which we are all
very grateful. The last few meetings have been attended
by an average of about 10 6th formers who have all enjoyed
the talks; given by Mr Newman on "Freedom: an illusion?",
"Censorship and freedom" and by Mr Sewell on "Human Relation­
ships". Our last meeting had no guest speaker and took the form of an open discussion on the relevance of education
for adult life. This was a stimulating evening and some
interesting concepts were put forward.
New members are always welcome and should liaise with
Mr Benson for information about meetings.

SOCIETIES
Christian Union
At the beginning of the year the Christian Union suffered
a significant drop in numbers as last year's middle and
upper sixth formers left us. However, this was partly compensated for by the arrival of one, Hippity Dog, Esq,
who was an immediate success. We are pleased to announce
more Hippity Dog films will be shown in the future.
The main Christian Union meeting is on Tuesdays, at 3.40 pm in Room 12. Although we are a small group at the moment,
we look forward to seeing new members as we continue to
celebrate Life, as we know it.

First XI Football
Only moderate success has been achieved this seaoon.
Two factors have contributed to this: only 2 of last
year's squad of 15, Chris Penn and Andy Kremer, came
back to School j and many squad members' Saturday jobs made
our Wednesday team stronger, whilst regular changes
affected teamwork.
Our p18,ving record is misleading, losing 3 Saturday games,
by an a_gre_ate of 20 goals to nil, against Simon Langton,
twice, and Harvey. Apart from these fixtures our record
was reasonably good. Results improved, as the season
progressed, to a fine 0-0 home draw with Maidstone School,
who eventually won the Under 19 Schools' League. We
finished hth out of the 13 schools, having been 3rd in
the previous year.
There were many bonuses this season. Tim Davies became Kent Schools goalkeeper, a fine performance for a lower
6th boy. Tim Dixon and Gary Jones also played several
games for us, the 1st 4th years to play since Richard
Dowle. This is encouraging for next season. Several
players deserve individual recognition: Richard Dunkling
and lan Bonny, in defence; Julian Wilson in midfield;
Tim Falconer in attack, with Tony Arnold and Martin
Podmorej and John Allingham playing in every po_;ition at
one staKe or another.
Colours were re-awarded to: Andy Kremer and Chris FenD;
and awarded to John Allingham, Tim Falconer, Tim Davies,
Richard Hanson and lan Bonny. Representative ties were
aw_rded to: Richard Dunkling, Dave Virgin, Tony Arnold,
Julian Wilson, Martin Podmore and Steve Thompson.

.
Two major weaknesses in the team's performance have been in defensive play, particularly ineffective tackling and a generallaok of fitness, often meaning poor support play. These 2 areas will be improved by a real commitment to training alone.

Under 12 Socc_r
­
After an excellent start to the season, winning twice
against Astor by 5 goals, we lost all of the remaining
matches. Our main Problem has been a failure to mark
closely, especially in mid-field. We do, however, have
some good players. Once we have learnt to work together
as a team, we hope to be more successful.
Playing record: PlaYed 8; Won 2; Lost 6.
Under 13 Soccer
With an excellent carry-over from last season's squad,
the team was reformed and went on to play attractive
and thoughtful soccer, despite some rather inclement
conditions.
Early in the season We avenged last year's only defeat
by beating Harvey 4:3. This augured well, but with the
absence of skipper Richardson, and possession problems
in mid-field, we slumped mid-season, losing 2 matcheG.
One of these was the important Cup Match against Chaucer.
However, with a lesson learned, a more positive attitude
was adopted, and we regained our usual composure.
Playing record: Played 10; Won 7; Lost 2; Drew 1.
BC
Under 14 Soccer
This has been a season of mixed fortunes, but the
enthusiasm and spirit _ong the players has been excellent.
The side has always tried to play attractive and attacking
football and, at times, some of the teamwork and individual
skills have been first class.
The main weaknesses ha_e been in defence, especially a
lack of understanding between players and indecisiveness
when under pressure. These errors let opposition get to_
many Scoring opportunities so the team was punished by
these mistakes.
If the .__!_._. iato a lIore solid unit, and
work wit_r';;" Jtby1;ha and understanding that the

very 8uOd...ful over the next few seasons.

KAC
Under 15 Soccer
Matches have been very competitive this season and we
have found difficulty finding our true form. On some days up to 8 of the team have been playing for the Dover Boys side. Thanks must go to our reserves who were willing to play several matches.
There has been improvement throughout the squad and in all aspects of the game. Over the past 3 years the team has had a lot of success, and this year is no exception. Most
of the games have been won, but we were a little shocked by the 7-0 defeat against Borden. This was mainly due to players not being available.
Playing record: Played 14; Won 10; Lost 2; Drew 2.
Sailinp; Club
This has been a good season which included the National
Schools Team Racing final at Oxford. After a hard day's racing the team was disappointed with only a 3rd place.
The standard of racing has improved over the year, shown by our performance in the Kent Schools' Team Racing Championship. We look forward to some good racing next year and welcome any new members.
