Reuniting after many years can be daunting for many, but the (not so old) Old Boys of 2008 greeted each other as if it were just yesterday that they celebrated their last day and a successful end to their time at the School.
Coming together at The Bishop’s Finger on Monday 13 November, the Old Boys were in the presence of their former teachers, Dr Roy Sloan, Mrs Janet Swallow and Mr John Swallow, sharing jokes and stories of memorable moments from HABS. A special mention must go to Mr Hardman who, although unable to be there himself, had prepared a rousing update video message showcasing the infamous Russell House drum call.
For a bit of fun, the Old Boys were shown three words that were used to describe them in the 2008 year book to see if they could identify themselves or others. Robbie Phillips and Matthew Cohen were suitably impressed that they remembered the three words they each used to describe themselves as being ‘nothing too special’ and ‘humble, sculpted, worshipped’.
The evening was a huge success with our Old Boys exchanging details and vowing to remain in contact.
