On Anglo-Continental’s 67th anniversary (Monday 7 August 2017) a memorial bench and gardens were unveiled in memory of Mr Fritz Schillig, Founder of Anglo-Continental.
Guido Schillig, Managing Director of Anglo-Continental gave a speech:
“Today marks the 67th anniversary of the day that Fritz, or FS as many used to call him, opened the doors to his school to welcome the first students who had travelled from abroad to come to Bournemouth in order to learn or improve their English. It is therefore fitting that we should dedicate this bench in his memory on this day.
We would like to thank James, the Facilities Manager and his team for their efforts in placing the bench here and for the lovely garden that surrounds it.
We hope that staff and students alike will take advantage of this bench and from time to time remember the man whose hard work and vision has given us Anglo-Continental as it is today.”
