OGA Awards Cocktail Evening
OGA Awards Cocktail Evening - Saturday 24 October
The wings of school friendship span decades and oceans and our reunion weekends are much anticipated by so many of our Old Girls.
As you are aware, we had rescheduled our reunion weekend once in 2020, in the hope that when September came around borders would be open and Old Girls the nation over could have attended. There was a glimmer of hope albeit briefly this might be possible. Sadly, noises are now being made by political leaders that our borders may remain closed until Christmas. With many of you expressing, if this was the case, that you would prefer to wait until more of your cohort can attend, we have decided to postpone the reunion weekend to next year (when we will aim for two reunion weekends).
We won’t set a date at this stage and will need to see what the next few months bring.
Thank you to everyone who has contacted us; you have given us clarity about your preferred course of action.
Keep in touch; keep your contact details up to date and we hope to see many more of you in 2021.
