Pupils travel near and far for reunion
BLACKBOARDS had been replaced by white boards when former students returned to their classroom 30 years later.
The cohort of students who left Chesham Bois Combined School 30 years ago, in 1985, held a reunion.
Organiser Nick Wayth said: “We met at the school, where staff had kindly brought out photos from our era, as well as photos and work from current pupils. We also visited our old classrooms, some of which felt very similar to 30 years ago – with the main exception of blackboards being replaced by white boards and smart boards. The playground has changed quite a bit, with the addition of a reception class complete with solar panels, on what was the adventure playground in our time.
“Most of us still recognised one another, in spite of the number of years since we last saw each other and we managed to fill the entire evening recounting
OLD FACES: Former school friends returned to the classroom 30 years later stories, mostly getting into trouble with the teachers, and talking about class mates who had been unable to attend.”
Old students came from as far as Australia and Egypt to attend the reunion.
Mr Wayth added: “We hope to meet again and won’t wait 30 years next time.”
