We are sad to announce that Miss Margaret Freeman, Head of the Girls' School when it closed in 1988, and a History and Scripture teacher at Selhurst since 1954, passed away peacefully on 1st May 2018 at Belmont House Nursing Home in Sutton aged 86. We last saw Margaret when she attended our Reunion/AGM in July 2016, held at The Brit School. 

Margaret's funeral took place on  Friday 11th May at St Mary's Church, Beddington. A number of Old Croydonians attended and the Committee was represented by Vice-Chair Valerie Heathorn.  We are planning to put an article about Miss Freeman in the 2019 OCA Magazine.  If you have any reminiscences, however brief,  and/or photographs which we could use for this, please send them here.
