2015 Centenary Celebrations

 

In April of 2015 we celebrated our Centenary. On Friday, 24th, the girls kept the tradition of a Grand Picnic alive, despite the chilly weather. The girls completed their time capsule contributions which was buried and will not be re- opened until 2040, our 125th Anniversary.  The effort and care  the girls put into their time capsule bags was remarkable. We also recorded the whole school singing "Proud" by M-People - watch the video HERE.

 

The Saturday celebrations were fabulous and attended by over 400 old girls from all previous decades back to the 30's. They were amazing women and considerably more rowdy and feisty than anticipated! It was a joyous and fun afternoon.  The tidal wave of affection for their  school was immense.  Some brilliant stories, emotional memories and funny anecdotes. Many fulsome and serious compliments for the school. The new amphitheatre was opened by Mrs Pemble along with the archive corridor, you are most welcome to view these next time you are in school. The engraved bricks looked splendid. 

 

The first hundred years have been fantastic, we shall now get started on the next hundred.

 

Some of our photographs from the Centenary Celebrations can be found on our Flickr page HERE.

You can also access a fabulous photo gallery put together by the Herald Express of 90 images from their own archives HERE!
