Alwyne Brown Obituary, Death – We are sorry to inform you of the passing of Mr. Alwyne Brown, a former teacher who was 84 years old. He passed away recently. At this time, our thoughts and prayers are with you. Alwyne taught Classical Civilization, Latin, and Greek at QEGS from 1966 all the way up until 2002, in addition to acting as Head of Year 9 throughout that time. She also held the post throughout that time. The fact that he frequently participated in things that were not a part of the curriculum, such as field trips and other outings, added to the favorable reputation that he enjoyed among his pupils and coworkers.
During his tenure at QEGS, Alwyne joined students on field trips to a number of different destinations across the world. One of these trips was the Classics department’s yearly excursion to Pompeii, which Alwyne was a member of. He also created and directed a number of school plays, some of which included The Vigil, Pot of Gold, and Henry VI – Part 3, and he performed in school pantomimes. The fact that Alwyne volunteered to take part in the Duke of Edinburgh program every year, during which he camped out and spent weekends away from home, was not something that should have come as a surprise to anyone.
He exuded an energizing and contagious passion for life. In addition to that, he participated in the sport of swimming on a fairly regular basis. He was a swim coach, a lifeguard, and a member of the swim team, and he was an integral component of the latter group, especially during the yearly contests. After Alwyne had already spent her retirement years, she went on to work for the National Health Service (NHS), where she was given the responsibility of transporting patients. Alwyne is going to have a lot of regrets about leaving behind his wife Beryl, his son Tim, and the rest of his family, in addition to all of his many friends.
