Saturday 21 November saw the classes of 1990 & 1991 return to RGS for their Silver Reunion. It was great to see so many attend the evening.
For many, it was hard to believe that 25 years had flown by since they stood in the very same space wolfing down their school dinners at lunch time (now the Sixth Form centre). To much consternation, some individuals had raided the boxes in the attic and were armed with stacks of photographs of former classmates from the late 80’s and early 90’s (big hair included).
With background music playing from the era that they left RGS, Reigatians took the opportunity to pick themselves out on the display boards with photos and headshots from seminal RGS moments such as the 1990 Canada Rugby Tour, various CCF trips and RGS stage shows.
The Headmaster, Shaun Fenton, popped in to provide an update of all the fantastic things that have been happening at RGS over the last few years highlighting the successes achieved in sport, drama, league tables and CCF to name but a few.
As the night came to a close and the classes of 1990 & 1991 departed into the blisteringly cold Saturday night, they left with the words from the Headmaster ringing in their ears, no matter where you are in the world, whenever you left RGS and whatever you have achieved in your career, one thing will always remain constant and that is that you will always be a Reigatian.
