An Afternoon of Reminiscence and Tea for Alumnae!
The school marked the end of its centenary celebrations by hosting an afternoon tea for the school's growing alumnae.
Despite the weather, we had a great turnout, with over 120 ladies attending! They all thoroughly enjoyed the afternoon, reminiscing about their school days as they mixed and mingled with past pupils and staff as well as current staff over a delicious afternoon tea.
A watercolour painting of the school by Poppy Blakiston-Houston was also unveiled at the event. The painting which is modern in style depicts an open view of the school and grounds being enjoyed by pupils. The school’s founder Violet Curry was an avid artist who enjoyed painting nature in watercolour and the new painting was commissioned specifically in watercolour to highlight the schools’ historic artistic roots.
The year has been packed with celebrations to commemorate the centenary including a centenary logo being created, memorabilia for students, and new school signage as well as the celebratory ball last November, where alumnae joined current and former staff, along with their friends and family, for a memorable evening of festivities.
