The Form of 2005 Plaque

2005_fp_framed_web

The top section of the plaque features a view of the Lower School Pond docks with the stone circle ‘Stonehenge’ project completed by a group of students that year. The lower half shows the Athletic and Fitness Center, opened for use in the fall of 2004. In the bottom left corner is a baseball with the dates (1918–2004), representing the Boston Red Sox’s World Series win and the breaking of the “curse.” The bottom right corner depicts a closed book with the initials “CBA,” marking the end of the Right Reverend Dr. Craig Barry Anderson’s term as Eleventh Rector of St. Paul’s School.

The Form of 2005 plaque is now completed.  The above photograph shows a sample of the painted finish on the plaque – featuring a detail of the stone circle ‘Stonehenge’ project that was completed by a group of students that year.

The completed framed plaque will be revealed on Anniversary Weekend on Saturday May 30th – at which time photographs of the finished plaque will be published online.  Thank you to the representatives from the Form of 2005 for their help with this project –  I am looking forward to seeing members of the Form of 2005 at the SPS Anniversary event to celebrate your new Form plaque!
