The annual Alumnae Reunion Weekend is always a busy date in the Marymount diary, and 2019 was no exception.
Over 50 alumnae made the journey to Marymount, from Surrey to Seattle, reuniting with their classmates to share their stories and memories. The Class of 1969, who celebrated their 50 year anniversary, brought over half their graduating Class together for a special week’s holiday in London. Miss Holland brought along photographs of School trips to jog the memories of the Classes of 1989 and 1999, who enjoyed a lesson with Mr Ripp. At the Friday evening reception, everyone relished reminiscing with past staff, including Miss Amory, who taught the Class of 1969. She was presented with a framed picture of Putney Bridge by her grateful students.
A Prayer Service was also held to celebrate the reunion. Here, Alumnae had a chance to (re)sign the Alumnae book and light candles to remember classmates who could not be there with them. On tours around the campus, many guests commented on how the School had changed physically, and yet remained the same in its essence. This was reinforced by a chatty discussion with the student panel on the Saturday morning, which left many Alumnae wanting to re-take their senior year! Thank you to everyone who came and helped make this such a special occasion.
