2016 LEAVERS ENJOY THEIR 5 YEAR REUNION
In our first post-lockdown social event of the new school year, on 14th September we were delighted to welcome back over 60 alumni and parents to the MS Hall. Although only five years since their departure from our midst, the world has certainly been challenged and changed since 2016. Nonetheless, the old Hall spirit was still present amongst the cohort, evident in the way the old boys bounded into the MS hall to hug each other, outbursts of laughter reverberating as they spotted old friends, now sporting beards or statement hairstyles, some towering above their previous heights. Hilarious too, was the way in which student’s “feats of daring-do” came to light in conversations with parents about long-ago playdates and sleepovers, or with teachers about escapades on the coach during school trips and Activity Week residentials. Chris Godwin welcomed the families back and spoke fondly of his memories of coming to the school when the cohort were entering Year 6. Mr Shah shared some old videos taken when the group were in various JS and MS productions, including sweet and very loud renditions of ‘Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum’ type songs as they performed in the JS’ Pirates Show and some unusually energetic, golf-swing type dance moves in the Year 4 Variety Show! In time-honoured tradition, at some point during the event, the alumni disappeared from the hall for a short, but apparently competitive (what else?!) game of football on The Yard before perhaps heading off to a local pub to continue the conversations ….
