Tribute Paid to FST Founder

Following news that Future Schools Trust is to merge with Every Child Ever Day Trust, there was bound to be some heartache at this year’s annual governors’ barbecue.

The event, held at The Swan, West Malling, celebrated the many successes the Trust and its schools have achieved since its foundation, more than 10 years ago.

Tributes were paid to FST founder and former governor, Ray Harris, who was thanked for his dedication and commitment to the trust over the years, by the present chair of governors Marilyn Hodges.

Mrs Hodges then presented him with a painting by one of Cornwallis Academy’s talented art students.
