The Final Tour

Jon Beard has been a key member of staff at Saltus since the day he first set foot on the campus at St. John’s Road in 1977. At the time, Saltus was an independent all-boys school with staff housing on campus located in the Woodlands Building. Jon came to Bermuda with his wife Jennie who was also a teacher. Jennie Beard went on to become Deputy Head of Primary School at the Cavendish campus in 2002.

Much loved by current and former Saltus staff and students, Jon has embarked on his ‘final tour’ in 2022 with Alumni events scheduled in many locations. As a part of his farewell, he has agreed to participate in the oral archiving of the School’s living history. The oral archiving project combines more than 40 interviews of past students and staff to help chronical the history of one of Bermuda’s longest standing educational institutions. Here is a snapshot of some of the stories Jon has to tell.
