The sun shone, the bunting billowed and the balloons bobbed as the School welcomed more than 200 OJs and their families for a very special OJ reunion day on Sunday 9 June to celebrate the centenary anniversary of OJs returning to the School.
At St John’s we are always interested to hear the inspiring stories of the lives that our OJs go on to lead after leaving school and Rowena Cole, The Head, was recently delighted to meet with OJ Leah Chowdhry (South 2008-2010) to talk about her significant fundraising activity.
Former St John’s Student Presents Cheque to GASP Motor Project
Cameron McKenzie, a former St John’s pupil who received the OJ Charity Award at the School’s 2018 prize giving, has chosen to donate the funds to the GASP Motor Project, an Albury-based charity supporting at risk or vulnerable students.
This year’s annual OJ Dinner took place on Friday 12 October, and was a wonderful evening of celebration. Spanning the generations from the 1940s onwards, 115 OJs from eight decades were in attendance.
The high level of sport which St John’s pupils are renowned for does not conclude at the end of Upper Sixth. Many OJs (St John’s alumni) have taken their rugby careers to new levels after leaving school.
