A Warm Welcome to All Elthamians and Friends of Eltham College
L F K
On Monday 12th November a TV crew from China came to Eltham College as part of their research into Eric Liddell, who was born there of missionary parents in 1902 and went back as a teacher and later a missionary himself. The Chinese team filmed the Eric Liddell Sports Centre, the Chapel, the many documents we have about him in the school archives, the photos of him in our sports teams and his name on several honours boards, as well as visiting College Meadow Pavilion which was opened by his daughter in 1912 and has a plaque about his life.
Colin Bishop writes:
John Sarjeant was born in China in July 1924. At the start of the Second World War, the family was living in Bromley.
John served in the RAF Volunteer Reserve and was promoted to Leading Craftsman in September 1944. Subsequently, he served in the RAF and was appointed as a Flying Officer in March 1950.
He married Jean in 1949 and they had a son, Tony, who was also educated at Eltham College.

It is safe to say that the six of us, upon ending our tour of the BBC, left with a great respect for what the BBC represents - impartial, unbiased news. OE Jim Egan (87), Chief Executive Officer of BBC Global News, kindly arranged our visit. He provided us with an excellent understanding of how the BBC operates, and how it has responded to events such as Trump’s war against the media. We also gained greater knowledge of the range of career opportunities at the BBC, both in front of and behind the camera.
