Golden Girls' Reunion - Leavers of the 1940s & 1950s

Friday 23rd June 2017

On Friday 23rd June we were absolutely delighted to be joined by 82 alumnae of the 40s and 50s who came from Italy and the four corners of the UK for this very special reunion. 

View the videos from the day of happy School memories here and memories of boarding here.

We began the day with a Chapel service where we celebrated the long connection the ladies have with the school. Mrs Zena Skinner (1944) and Miranda Greenway (nee Johnston) (1960) read the lessons and 3 current pupils from L6 and L4 gave a wonderful music concert on the piano and violin.

A delicious lunch was enjoyed by all in the gym, followed by a walk around an interesting display of photos and memorabilia from the School archives.  We were delighted that many of the girls had brought photos and reports from their days at School to the reunion, so these could be scanned and added to the archives. 

The ladies enjoyed being shown around the School by current pupils, visiting old haunts including School Block and boarding, as well as the new Anniversary Halls and Speech Hall Library.   We were also very pleased to capture some of their memories on video, as they toured the School.  All these stories really help to bring the School’s history to life.
Any ladies who were unable to make the reunion are most welcome to come and visit the School.  Do get in touch so we can arrange a visit with you.
