The Federation of School Lodges


The Old Esthameians Lodge are also members of The Federation of School Lodges which was founded in 1947. The idea of a Union of London School Lodges was mooted as early as 1934 but nothing materialised until the autumn of 1945 when 27 School Lodges in London and the Home Counties were invited to an exploratory meeting at the Kingsley Hotel, London. In April 1946 and 14 Lodges expressed their intention to support the scheme. It was considered that there was sufficient support to justify further action and a General Meeting was held at Emanuel School in January 1947 when it was unanimously agreed “That a Federation of School Lodges be formed forthwith”.
