Alumni Gather for Largest Prep School Reunion Yet
There were many familiar faces at the Prep School alumni event on Saturday 4 May.
The event was held in the Dining Room, with some fantastic canapés on offer courtesy of Darren and Phil (from Holroyd Howe) in the kitchen. This was probably the largest gathering since this event was started. The group ranged from people who were here in the 1960s to those who only left in this century! We even had a father and son duo who had been at the school 30 years apart; both of them had been taught by former Headmaster Peter Pyemont.
As usual there were plenty of photographs to look at. I always find it amazing how many of the old pupils can recognise everyone in a photograph, even when it is the whole year group.
There were plenty of former staff who reminisced with the old and not-so-old former pupils. Trying to get everyone onto the tarmac for a group photograph was a mammoth task as they were so busy talking. Towards the end of the event, Peter Meier took a large group for a tour of the school.
It was a great occasion enjoyed by everyone who came to it; some people had travelled quite a long way, Nottingham and Dorset to name two distant places. Some of the group retired to the pub to continue catching up with their old school friends.
