1970 Leavers - Reunion Lunch - 8th March 2020

We were especially pleased to host a reunion lunch last Sunday, 8th March, on behalf of the Calne Girls' Association, for 26 Leavers from 1970.

We were especially pleased to host a reunion lunch last Sunday, 8th March, on behalf of the Calne Girls' Association, for 26 Leavers from 1970.

The Oratory Library, (the school chapel until the early 1980s), was transformed into a stylish dining room, decorated with spring flowers, where our guests were treated to a champagne reception and welcome speech from Dr Kirk, followed by a delicious sit-down lunch.

Very few of the returning old girls had visited Calne since the day they left and one had not set foot on the campus for 52 years. It was a day of great nostalgia and endless chatter, and one lady remarked in her thank you that she was 'stunned at how lovely it (the school) is now, and quite wish I was 12 or 13 again - to have such incredible luxury!'
