OGA

New Committee Update

 

We are pleased to announce that the OGA now has a new and enthusiastic committee.

 

After an extremely enjoyable reunion back at the school in Sept 17 many of us were eager to be back in regular touch with old friends, and with much support we are actively picking up where the previous team left off.

 

We plan to:

 

  • Organise regular reunions
  • Refresh and enhance the website.
  • Circulate regular newsletters.
  • Gather and provide access to as much archive material as possible.

 

An informal reunion is planned for 19th October 2019, followed by a major reunion hopefully at the school in October 2020 in honour of the 90th anniversary since its foundation. More details to follow.

 

We have contacted as many old pupils of GGS as we had records for, and are updating the membership list with confirmed current information. If you have not heard from us and would like to be included please be in touch.

 

Email our membership secretary evwandrews3@gmail.com

 

Would you like to volunteer to join us?

 

If so:

 

  • Do you have any particular relevant skills?
  • Do you have any suggestions for improvements we could make?

 

The OGA bank account was empty when we took over. Many have very kindly already donated to help us get things off the ground again, and our grateful thanks go to all of you who have done so. We have not yet reached the target of what is needed to fulfill all the goals.

 

  • If you have not done so already could you support us to create the new website with a donation, possibly £10?

If you would like to donate also please send cheques to Caroline Brooks at 2 Treloar Road, Hayling Island, Hants, PO11 9SE. or contact her: caroline.brooks2@gmail.com for bank details.

CLASS OF 1945 - 1950 / 52

At the 2000 reunion, several of us from the above years met up. A few had been attending reunions for several years, but one or two were "first-timers" for various reasons.
From this time, many of us thought we would like to meet more regularly, so a six monthly lunch was arranged for several years. Unfortunately, we lost five classmates within eighteen months, so now 10-12 of us meet roughly every couple of months for lunch at various venues in the Godalming area.
Conversation is always lively -- and rather noisy -- we just enjoy seeing each-other. Families are discussed, current aches & pains are compared, and latest medical diagnoses shared...    Well, after all, we are all septugenarians!  The picture, taken at a recent lunch in Milford.  If any other 'class-mates', mainly the B stream, would like to join us, contact can be made through Peter Fuller (p.fuller1@ntlworld.com) phone 01932-885042."
