    • Fund raising not done, except for events. Advised to hold of before another major raffle.
    • Merchandising – held by CAT, sold at school – quite a bit of money tied up in stock, but it is moving.

    Full report available on request to Chairman.

  4. Treasurer’s report & Petrean Finance Committee Report

    US$80000 in the school bank account. 10% interest. Basically use the interest to fund bursaries. Sponsors 5 boys who are in need of help to pay for school fees.

  5. Election of Office bearers

    The Rector constitutionally is the Society President and hence JBC has resigned.

    Mention was made by Stuart Mattinson about getting JBC to become and honorary member due to his time and commitment to Peterhouse.

    All the other members of the committee offered themselves for re-election and we duly elected.

  6. Any other business

    Rolling 50+ reunion every 5 years. To give more Petreans a chance to get involved – John Dawson to send a proposal. Propose to kick start with next one at the 60th Celebrations.

    Endowment Fund with older Petreans is important. 60th celebrations coming up, with Chris Paterson at Oxford. University Leavers in SA and Zim should be given notice to attend 60th celebrations here in Zim.

Communications with regard to the above must be received by the Honorary Secretary (Petrean Honorary Secretary).

Petrean Chairman
