On Saturday 16th March, Withington Girls’ School played host to old girls who left between 1950 and 1991, along with the guest of honour herself, Miss Marjorie Hulme. The day went off without a hitch, with the visitors enjoying a three course lunch, an afternoon tea, and tours around the school.
Guests heard tributes to Miss Hulme from the current Headmistress, Sue Marks, as well as from Debbie Griffiths [nee Killip, 1975] who reminisced over her and her friends’ time at the School. Clare Flynn, Development Director and old girl, presented Miss Hulme with a specially designed commemorative book, in celebration of her time at the school, including birthday messages from alumnae and staff.
The lunch finished with the cutting of Miss Hulme’s birthday cake, made and decorated by Pat Mamelok , which was enjoyed by all before tours of the School departed. One old girl said ‘A really great day, meeting up with people that I’ve not seen in 40 years and being able to pick up conversations as if it was only yesterday!’. We hope that all guests had as enjoyable a time as we did, and if you have any pictures or memories you’d like to share, please do not hesitate to contact the Development Office
