On one weekend, Woldingham hosted events enjoyed by our youngest students and by alumnae who left the school 50 years ago.
Saturday 16 September was a perfect, sunny day for our Year 7 Treasure Hunt. Around 100 students and family members were welcomed by Head of Marden Ms Renshaw, who set the students off on a site-wide treasure hunt, to their great excitement.
After an hour and a half exploring school and grounds, and getting to know more about Woldingham’s long history, answer sheets were handed to a team of willing WPSA* reps to be marked. Prizes, donated by WSHA** our alumnae association, were awarded to students with the three best scores. Congratulations to Aoife, our overall winner.
The treasure hunt ended with a BBQ on Pergola Lawn in the sunshine. Thank you to the many Year 7 parents who joined us to make the first treasure hunt in a few years such a success.
The following day, we welcomed alumnae from the Class of 1973 back to Woldingham for their 50-year reunion (see photos in gallery below). The group enjoyed reminiscing about their school days over lunch in the Stephens Room, followed by a guided tour that evoked even more recollections.
It was a wonderful afternoon of shared memories and rekindling friendships, as well as looking forward to their next reunion.
