What a day we all had on Saturday for OC Day..! It was absolutely fantastic to see so many Old Churcherians back at the College for the 2022 OC Day, especially after the long hiatus. The sun was even shining on us...
It was terrific to see so many Old Churcherians taking part for the Eaton Trophies on Saturday and to have lots of spectators showing their support. Up against strong school teams, the matches were keenly contested, good fun and had great competitive spirit. The final results were as follows:
OC Women Vs 1XI Girls Hockey: 3-3
OC Men Vs 1XI Boys Hockey: 3-4
OC Women Vs 1VII Netball: 25-42
OC Reunion Lunch
Over 150 Old Churcherians joined us for an "authentic school dinner", representing 37 year groups from 1955 up to and including 2019. It was lovely to see so many meeting up with friends and getting to know OCs they had never met before.
It was wonderful to hear the school song, sung with great spirit, even by those had never even heard it before!
**STOP PRESS** The song is being reintroduced to pupils in the Summer Term, with specific assemblies arranged for all year groups!

Tours of the school were very popular and gave an opportunity for OCs to reminisce about school and see the various building developments. The tours were led by current Sixth Form students who really enjoyed meeting Old Churcherians and hearing some of the stories from yesteryear.
What a performance! Especially considering those taking part had one afternoon to rehearse and then a full auditorium to play and sing to... We have had so many positive comments from those taking part and those lucky enough to be in the audience. It was a special event and hopefully this will be the first of more OC Choir and OC Orchestra performances.
Thank you to everyone who was able to join us in this special tercentenary year. For those of you who couldn't make it we hope to see you next year.
