Alumni Enjoy Biggest May Reunion Yet
Saturday, 17 May 2014
This year’s May Reunion was the biggest yet, with over 260 alumni and former staff returning to Bolton School on Saturday! Pupils from the classes of 1964, 1974, 1984, 1994 and 2004 were in attendance, including two mother-daughter pairs. There was also the reminder that the Bolton School alumni community is international, with quite a few guests travelling from across the globe from places as diverse as Croatia, Sydney (Australia), San Francisco (USA), Germany, Otago (New Zealand), the Netherlands, Greece, and Toronto (Canada) to attend.
Alumni and former staff enjoyed welcome drinks in the Riley Centre and were formally welcomed by the Heads, Philip Britton and Sue Hincks. They then enjoyed lunch in the Boys’ Division Dining Hall – offering many Old Girls a first trip into the Boys’ Division! The guests joined together to sing Happy Birthday to Bernard Nolan, former Clerk and Treasurer, who turned 90 the day before the reunion.
Lunch was followed by tours of both Divisions, which were a great way for alumni to step back in time and remember their own school days. Former pupils also made the most of the pleasant weather in the gardens at the rear of the Riley Centre afterwards.
