Old Bedians Return to Bede's Prep for Reunion
On Saturday 5 May, the Prep School welcomed back former pupils and staff for drinks and canapes.
This reunion was the second Prep Alumni event this academic year, and had a different format to our previous offer of tea and tours in favour of drinks and canapes in the early evening.
The change seemed to go down well with the Old Boys and Girls as well as former staff. Freddie came from France again; he came to the school in 1968. He was only 5 and a half years old when he started as a boarder! He was pleased to a few people also from that era, especially several former staff members.
After reminiscing over the photos and catching up with old friends, there was the usual tour. Several of the visitors had not been back to the school since they left in the 1980s. They could not believe the changes that had occurred in that time. Some of the former pupils were heard saying that the rooms seem much smaller now!
It was great to see so many Old Boys and Girls at this reunion, and we very much look forward to the next one.
