Speaking at the event, Mr John Stuart, Chair of Governors, spoke of the many personal characteristics displayed by Mr Bonar over the time of his service as a Governor.

Mr Stuart, a former principal at the school, reflected upon qualities of generosity of spirit, ability to work objectively, integrity and the skill of applying his business acumen to the work of education.
