Pre-1950s Reunion

On Thursday, 24th March, the Dragon was delighted to welcome back 180 Old Dragons and guests to the pre-1950s Reunion at the Dragon. After a drinks reception, the Rev Anthony Harvey said Grace. The Hon. Peter Jay delivered a warm and witty speech which was followed by the Headmaster welcoming the Old Dragons back to the ‘Neverland’ memories of their childhood. The highlight of the afternoon was a rendition of the School song recorded especially for our former pupils by this year's boarders at Sing Song. Each attendee was given a souvenir booklet, researched by Archivist Gay Sturt, which included the words of the School Song so everyone could join in. It was a very joyful event full of fond memories, renewed friendships and laughter.

Our oldest attendees were Deidre Arthur (OD 1930) who had joined the Dragon in 1929, Richard Griffiths (OD 1939) and John Woodcock (OD 1940). We were also delighted to be joined by Old Dragons who had travelled from overseas: Tristram Pye (OD 1943) travelled over from Munich, Germany, Michael Berger (OD 1944) from Portugal, as well as Martin Green (OD 1948) and Michael Boyd-Carpenter (OD 1945) from France.
