Old Grovian Autumn Reunion 2023

Dear Old Grovian

I write to you from ‘The Grove’ as we head rapidly towards the half term break and despite the cold spell there are still leaves on the trees and the school still looks very ‘green’, no doubt when the pupils return after half term Autumn will have arrived.

We are delighted to be holding our Old Grovian Autumn Reunion on Sunday 12th November and we still need OG’s to sign up to come and play Rugby, Netball and Squash on this day.  If you would be interested in playing please contact myself by email.  Please give the Sports Captains from your day a nudge if they haven’t been in touch!

We would be delighted to welcome back some of our more recent leavers to play in the teams; although it’s always great to welcome the ‘older’ ones back, with it being touch rugby there maybe some that might fancy bringing their boots!

For those whose playing days may be behind them; everyone is welcome to join us on the day to watch all the games and enjoy an afternoon tea.

This is the programme for the day: 

Remembrance Service Chapel – 10.30am

Old Grovian Association AGM – 12 noon in the Rawson Room*  ALL WELCOME

OG Squash Tournament – 1pm at the Squash Court

OG Netball V The Grove – 1.30pm in the Sports Hall

OG Rugby Sevens – 2pm on the Grainge Pitch

Bar open and refreshments from 3pm.

*For anyone wishing to stay after the AGM for a light lunch please let us know so we know numbers.

We need you help? 

We are at that time of year when we start to pull together information for Xaipete, the Old Grovian newsletter and we would love to hear from you. Here is a little reminder of the kind of information we would like here in our latest editions.

Thank you for your support and we hope to see you on the 12th November.
