50s, 60s, 70s Reunion

It was an absolute pleasure to welcome back leavers from the 50s, 60s and 70s on Saturday 24 September.

The sun was shining as we welcomed back alumni who had left RGS in the 50s, 60s and 70s. 

The day began with refreshments and a welcome in our Performing Arts Centre (much admired by our guests), before the groups departed for tours of School with current RGS Prefects. The tours provided the perfect balance of reliving memories and School days along with enjoying the newer facilities on site. Everyone particularly enjoyed spotting familiar names on the honours boards and seeing the names displayed of staff who have served 25 years or more. Alumni thoroughly enjoyed hearing about RGS today from our Prefects who in turn learnt a huge amount about their School in the 50s, 60s and 70s. 

A delicious lunch followed in Perrins Hall where alumni could enjoy chatting with friends as well as an archives display and a few words from Headmaster John Pitt, Foundation Director Scott MacDonald and Head of Rugby Rob Lewis. 

After lunch, guests headed down to Flagge Meadow where they enjoyed RGS 1st XV putting on an admirable show against Pates Grammar. Alumni especially appreciated a little trip down memory lane with some orange slices at half time, with some even saying they felt ready to get on the pitch for the second half! 

The day was a great success and great fun, with alumni looking forward to revisiting again soon. The event is planned again next year, so watch this space for further details.
