Sean Devereux, Farnborough and Chertsey

This morning Fr Pat Sherlock showed me around the school here at Farnborough and while visiting the dining hall of the students did I come to know that Sean Devereux, was indeed a pupil of this school from 1975-1982.  The following painting done by one of the teachers and presently displayed in the dining hall triggered the discussion and my enlightenment.
Not only that he later was a PET at the Salesian school in Chertsey for two years!!  That was before he went as a volunteer to Africa and later was killed while in Somalia, while working for UNICEF.

Br Michael Delmer has authored a book on him... most probably he was a student while Br Michael was the head teacher here.

Surprisingly did not come up with anything related to Sean Devereux on the international Salesian website.  The digital library sdl.sdb.org of course has some interesting matter. Check it out here
