Founder's Day Picnic - 3 July

Saturday 3 July dawned with the promise of a lovely day and it delivered, the weather was perfect, full of sunshine and a gentle breeze that kept conditions comfortable.  A small group of OS was welcomed to Manor House where drinks were served.  Old friendships were renewed and new ones were forged.   The memorabilia on display jogged many happy memories, particularly of the visit of Prince Philip to the school in 1966. 

Richard Gunner (Wordsworth 60) brought with him an article about the TS Foundroyant which many pupils at the school in the 1950's may remember if they were lucky enough to have spent a week on board during the Easter holidays.  Information about the ship can be found at www.hms-trincomalee.co.uk


Central London Reunion - 11 June

On Friday 11 June 2010 The Cooperage Pub at London Bridge once again hosted the Central London Reunion.  This year saw a record turn out of OS from 1955 through to 2008.  The largest cohort was from the Class of 2003 as a note about the event had been posted on Facebook by one of the OS from that year.  Thank you Ben!

For many OS it was the first time they had attended a reunion and they enjoyed it immensely.  They hoped they wouldn't have to wait another year for the next one.
