Former Pupil Day on Saturday 1 June: a resounding success!

The Former Pupil Day held on Saturday 1 June was a remarkable success, with over 90 guests in attendance. Former pupils from 1961 through to 2014 returned to school and enjoyed a morning of catching up with classmates and former teachers.

The event began with a welcome reception, where guests enjoyed teas and coffees served by former pupil volunteers and current pupils, providing a perfect opportunity for old friends to reconnect and reminisce about their school days.

Anna Tomlinson, Head of St Margaret’s, delivered a warm welcome address, expressing her joy at seeing so many former students return to St Margaret’s. She highlighted the school's achievements over its long history, capturing the sense of pride and fondness for the school among the attendees. The occasion also marked her 10 Year anniversary as Head and she reflected on the “Top 10 traditions” handed to her by the class of 2014 when they left.

Following the welcome, guests were treated to guided tours of the school by current pupils. These tours offered a nostalgic journey through familiar hallways and classrooms, as well as a chance to see the new developments and improvements made since their time as pupils.

Lunch was served in the school hall, fostering further conversation and connection among former pupils. The camaraderie and shared memories made the meal a particularly enjoyable part of the day.

The event concluded on a high note with a rousing rendition of the school songs, bringing back fond memories and uniting everyone in a shared tradition.

Adding to the success of the day was a raffle held to support the school's Bursary Programme. Thanks to the generosity of the attendees nearly £400 was raised to support girls attending the school today, giving them the opportunity for a St Margaret’s education.

The Former Pupil Day on June 1 was not just a walk down memory lane but also a celebration of community and support. It reaffirmed the lasting impact of the school on our alumnae and the strong connections that continue to thrive long after leaving.

Tenez ferme!
