On Saturday 29th September an Old Boys’ reunion took place at St. Martin’s School in Northwood which was attended by about 250 former pupils and staff. The current Year 7 and 8 pupils showed them around the school so that they could see all of the changes. Two of the visitors were 84 years old , but previous pupils of all ages enjoyed sharing their memories of St Martin’s. It was a fabulous day, with a great deal of laughter and reminiscing.
Daniel Simons (1979 – 85) commented, “I will always look back on my time here with a great deal of love and affection.”
Daniel Bronson (1986 – 91) said, “It was a good day to step back down memory lane. The school seems a lot bigger because of all the new buildings, and a lot smaller because I am a lot bigger.”
The St. Martin’s Year 7 and 8 pupils loved listening to the anecdotes and showing the visitors around their school. Dhruv Sarin in Year 8 said, “It was amazing to show the old boys around the ‘new’ school and to see their reactions.” Alex Cohen in Year 8 agreed, “It was so entertaining to hear 90 years of school boys exchanging stories.”
Later in the year St. Martin’s School will continue its anniversary celebrations with a quiz for the Y5 – 8 boys, the Bugsy Malone musical and a 1920s ball. There will also be a special concert with performances from former and current pupils.
