Last week marked the loss of another FDMC old boy. Chris Bates was a student at the college in the 1960s and had gone on to travel widely before bringing his great love of literature to several generations of students at New Plymouth Girls High. Chris's passing was well marked by NPGHS and the wider community and we can assure his friends and family of our thoughts and prayers.
In recent months Chris had donated some photos from his school days which we have added to our 1960s photo gallery page. You can view these photos here.
