The OCA Annual Dinner held on Friday 18th November at Simpsons in the Strand, London, was a great success with over 100 OC’s in attendance and over 50% under the age of 40!
Guest of Honour of was Alex Presnell and his wife Maggie with the Head, John Weeds and the senior four of Tom Battson, Isla Leckie, Macsen Lambert and Olivia Stevens as the newest and welcome guests.
Alex recounted tales from his 25 years of service at Cranbrook, ranging from PE and Geography teaching, to Head of Allan and Rammell houses, plus a few tales from some legendary sports tours. Thanks to Alex and Maggie for all they have done for the school and we wish them both a very happy retirement.
Big re-union groups of OC’s from 2011, 2006, 1996, 1986 and 1976 era’s filled the room and as the evening drew to a close, the volume grew as fond memories of times and more importantly friends, were recounted.
Next year’s OCA dinner will be on Friday 17th November 2017 at Simpsons-in-the-Strand. Please check the OCA website for more details.
