Over 60s Summer Reunion Lunch

The history of Caterham School was brought to life as our over 60s OCs shared their school experiences with First Year pupils at the OCA’s Over 60’s Summer Reunion.

A nostalgic lunch was served in the old Dining Hall, now known as the Wilberforce Hall, followed by tours of the School. It was wonderful to hear memories from Old Cats who attended Caterham School, reminiscing about their time in boarding when visiting Mottrams and Beech Hanger, as well as lessons in Shirley Goss. Many of whom had not visited the School in some time and were impressed with all the new buildings and facilities over the last few decades.

Over afternoon tea, pupils heard stories about the OCs’ former teachers, lessons, pranks and daily life. The event was a chance for the current pupils to provide the visitors with an insight into the changes and continuities of academic and co-curricular life at Caterham now.

Being back on the School grounds certainly evoked lots of memories for the OCs and provided a chance for current pupils to find out first-hand about the history and traditions of the School.

Many thanks to all the OCs who came along to the event.
