Celebrating 10 Years of the Junior School

Posted on 24 September 2018 by Miss Amy Hinds, Communications Officer

In 2007, 125-126 Queen’s Gate Junior School opened its doors for the first time, having spent the majority of its life housed with the Seniors at 131 Queen’s Gate. Ten academic years later, on Friday 21 September, the School celebrated this milestone with a special event. Guests from the whole QG Community were invited, including current and former parents, governors, staff and Old Girls.

Throughout the evening, guests enjoyed an array of canapés and drinks, created by the School’s caterer, Brookwood. A special exhibition, written and designed for the event, told the story of the Junior School, the buildings and the people who have passed through the doors. Old photographs, recipes and poetry were but a few of the fascinating elements on show. Current Junior School pupils also entertained with musical pieces on violin, cello and piano.

Speeches were given by Principal Mrs Kamaryc, Former Director of the Junior School, Mrs Neale and current Director Mr Denchfield, as well as former Junior School pupils Angelica Meneely, Christine Crawford-Brunt and Emma Ferone – all telling their favourite memories and stories from their time at the School.

Many thanks to those who attended – a great evening was had by all.
