2008, OWA Annual Dinner and AGM
Over 85 OWs joined the Head Master and 2008 OWA President David Stevens at the annual OWA dinner on 6 December 2008.
Guest speaker was Charlie Samuda (WS 1999-2006) who had recently won a place on the English Speaking Union Capitol Hill Programme in Washington DC. This involved seven weeks interning with a Democratic Congresswoman followed by several weeks working on the Obama campaign.

Members of the committee were re-elected for a further year. David Stevens was thanked for all his work as President in 2008. The Head Master was thanked for his continuing involvement and support.
