We are delighted to have been able to upgrade our Pavilion in memory of Jeremy Suter, old boy and teacher who died at the age of 23 in October 2014.
Dr Fenton's tribute to Jeremy is reproduced below:
It was actually very simple. Jeremy loved life and Jeremy loved cricket. Arriving at DCGS in September 2002 aged 11, he was doubtless disappointed that the cricket season was over for the year, but couldn't wait to share his enthusiasm and skill with his classmates in the summer term. Until he left Challoner's in 2009, Jeremy was DCGS cricket. His passion, skill and sportsmanship were infectious as he encouraged others and led many teams to victory both at home and abroad.
His return to DCGS in 2013 as a Geography teacher was welcomed by the staff who had taught him and especially by the PE Team who were looking forward to the 2014 cricket season. Once again, he threw himself into school cricket, coaching a team and sharing his love of the game with a new generation of DCGS students. His sudden and tragic death in October 2014 united the school community with staff, students and alumni feeling his loss very keenly.
The Jeremy Suter Pavilion was opened in June 2016 and is now in use year-round. Our grateful thanks to all who made this project possible.
