OGA Summer Luncheon 2017
Saturday, 24th June, saw the annual OGA Summer Luncheon as our Old Girls returned to MTGS for the chief social event of their calendar.
Over 60 Old Girls, current pupils and staff attended the Luncheon, which will unfortunately be Louise Robinson’s last as Headmistress following her decision to leave the School this coming Spring. Guests were treated to a three course meal, after which there was a short speech from OGA President, Anna Gervasoni, about School News and changes to the association. Following a recent committee meeting, it was decided to update the OGA’s constitution and increase the term Presidents of the Association serve from one to two years. Anna will therefore now hold this role for two years, as will all subsequent incumbents.
Among those present were Anna’s sister and Vice-President, Marie-Claire, along with her mother Dorothy who came as a guest. The event was also attended by OBA President Jeremy Myers and Chair of Governors/Old Girl, Beverley Bell CBE. This year there were three large cohort group reunions from the years 1957, 1967 and 1982, with the 1967 reunion in particular being very well supported.
Our thanks to all of those who attended and helped to make the event such a wonderful afternoon, in particular OGA Secretary, Sheila Duncan, for handling all the bookings and organisation of the event.
