For­mer Dr Chal­loner’s girls cel­e­brate mile­stone

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS - By Mort Smith mort.smith@trin­i­tymir­ror.com

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. hudgell@gmail.com.
