On Saturday, 23rd April, staff and former pupils gathered to celebrate the first ever in-person reunion of Heritage alumni. 27 alumni from 2016 through 2021 joined together in the Senior School Hall to hear about what has been happening at the school, and to catch up with their former classmates and teachers.
Mr Fletcher opened the event with some school updates—including a look back at recent changes and a look forward to upcoming camps and trips—and Mrs Fletcher shared some encouraging reflections about the resilience built by the pandemic and the importance of gratitude.
This was followed by a presentation by 2016 Leaver Chloe Chapman, who is currently doing a degree in Fine Art at Norwich University of the Arts, and spoke about her designs of curated natural objects and art from the natural world, mentioning how she was inspired by her experiences of nature walks, nature tables and picture studies at Heritage.
The group also watched a clip from 2016 Leaver Isabelle Taylor, describing her impressive final project of creating fashion from fish skins, as she completes a BA in Fashion and Design from the University of Edinburgh.
After plenty of socialising, a lingering group of alumni revived the playground tradition of Foursquare until closing time. It was a lovely time of reconnecting with our alumni, and we are looking forward to the next one already.
