Ten years on…

Thursday 19 January 2017

Alumni travelled from as far afield as Spain and Canada to attend the 10th anniversary reunion of the class of 2006.

Altogether 75 OLs and OGs gathered in the GSAL theatre foyer for the chance to renew friendships, reminisce, laugh over old photographs and catch up on each other’s news.

The 2006 reunion was organised by Natasha Rosenthall, Maya Das, Emma Goldstone and Samantha Delroy of LGHS along with Max Klugerman and James Kitching of LGS.

Some of the men wore their school ties, while others had their old junior school caps, amusingly known as ‘banana skins,’ sitting on the top of their fully grown heads.

Among the alumni was a married couple, Rebecca Davidson-Wolf and Nik Burkoff, who met at Olivia Cummins’ 18th birthday party when they were in the sixth form.  The couple now live in London.

The reunion was also attended by staff members Christine Jagger, Judith Kerr and Jackie Street of LGHS and GSAL, as well as Orla Fitzsimons, Anne Williams and Jack Williams of LGS and GSAL.

Christine Jagger gave a report on the work that has been done for Malawi educational and medical charities in the past 10 years, on behalf of Malawi coordinator Barry Brindley, who was unable to attend the event.  A number of those present at the reunion had been on the 2005 tour, including reunion organiser Natasha Rosenthall, now a senior manager working with UNICEF, who still holds Malawi close to her heart.

She said: “I am very pleased to see such a brilliant turnout and it has been great to hear from so many alumni based all over the world. It was lovely to be back together, catching up and swapping stories from our school days.”
