High school pupils are friends for life
Former Dr Challoner’s girls celebrate milestone
AS they approach retirement, most people would have lost touch with their school friends many years ago, but a gregarious group of Dr Challoner’s High School old girls are proving exceptions to that rule.
They will be holding a celebration next year to mark 42 years after leaving school – the year when most of them turn 60.
Organiser Gill Hudgell said: “We must be a pretty friendly bunch as several of us have stayed in touch ever since leaving school.
“Despite having settled all over the world, we get together quite often and we have held several reunions over the years.
“As next year is quite a milestone, we are very keen to contact everyone that we possibly can to make this reunion really special. We shall be getting together over afternoon tea and fizz at the school in Little Chalfont in September 2015.
“There will also be guided tours of the school to show how much it has grown over the years and even to meet some teachers too.”
Thanks to their great networking skills, the old girls have already managed to contact more than half of those who left DCHS in 1973, but would love to make contact with many more.
Did you do your A levels at DCHS in 1973, or leave after O-levels in 1971? Or do you know someone who did? If so, to find out more about the reunion contact Gill by e-mailing gill. email@example.com.
