Saturday 10 September was reunion day at the College and it was good to see Old Eastbournians return to their old school.
There were a variety of events during the day, including tours of the school, a chance to revisit former houses, evensong in the Chapel, as well as lunch, tea and a reunion dinner in the evening.
Being held just two days after the death of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, we decided that the Chapel service would be in remembrance of the Queen, and this was appreciated by those who attended. On show in the Chapel were the picture signed by Her Majesty when she visited the College in October 1966, and a chair which had been used at her coronation in June 1953, and later donated to the College by an OE.
At the evening dinner, Development Director Emma Garrett welcomed the guests and Headmaster Tom Lawson spoke about how the College was progressing now that the strictures of Covid lockdowns are over. A toast was made to the College, and the loyal toast was made to His Majesty King Charles III.
