1940s Leavers Return to School 9th May 2012
The three-course lunch, prepared by the School’s Catering Team, gave ladies a sample of the menus enjoyed by current pupils, and was declared by all present as “delicious”, as well as offering a further opportunity for reminiscence of the School lunches they enjoyed as pupils! A tour of the School followed, and with many ladies returning to School for the first time since leaving Withington in the early 1940s, much time was spent identifying those parts of the buildings they had studied in that are in still in use today.
After returning from their tour, guests enjoyed further refreshments and took the opportunity to purchase items of School memorobilia from the ‘Withington General Store’, before making their farewells and heading home. All in attendance commented on how much they had enjoyed the reunion, and we very much enjoyed welcoming the Alumnae and their guests back to Withington.
