WOODFORD CELEBRATE ITS CENTENARY
Former students invited to join the celebrations on Sunday 29 September 2019
Former students of Woodford probably don’t need to be told that the school celebrates its 100th birthday this September. Students still cite birthday festivities as one of the highlights of the school year. The parade is bigger than once it was (we are an expanding school) but otherwise, like the service, unchanged. The formalities honoured, the rest of the day is given over to cake and activities including a giant puzzle challenge, the murder mystery, 10-pin bowling and the challenges and thrills of an adventure centre.
We are not these days (with much larger student numbers and much stricter security arrangements) able to accommodate Old Girls joining us for school celebrations of the School Birthday. (This Year Friday 27 September.) We have, however, made the school site available to the OGA on Sunday 29 September – the actual Centenary of the school, of course.
We’d be delighted if you and your friends would join the OGA celebrations on 29 September. I will, of course, be there myself and tours of the school (our 251 year old building and our brand new Centenary Centre) will be available.
You will find here the application form which you are welcome also to send to your Woodford friends. In case of interest order forms are also available here for the soon-to-be –published History of the school – and for Winston, our Woodford Bear!
If you’ve any further queries about Sunday 29 September I’d ask that you direct them to the OGA as detailed on the application for tickets.
I look forward to seeing many of you on 29 September. It is always lovely to hear from former students and to know how actively they keep in touch with their Woodford friends. We are very keen to grow our alumni network, as it is proving to be a great help not only to current students, but also to our alumni. We would be very grateful if you would sign up yourself and pass the link on to anyone you know who has yet to sign up: https://networks.futurefirst.org.uk/former-student/woodford
