Rohilla Day

In September 1959 whilst returning from a sailing holiday from the Channel Isles, the yacht Rohilla a 16 ton converted R.N.L.I. lifeboat was tragically lost at sea together with all hands. Those being a member of school staff supported by a second adult and five pupils from school. In 2008 it was requested by former pupils that a Sunday morning chapel service, followed by a lunch reunion be arranged; similar to those held in the 1950's and 1960's. In October that year this was arranged and supported by 35 people. Repeated in September last year, proving so successful with 60 people attending the lunch, and by the afternoon numbers had risen to 65 former pupils and staff.

 


Agreed by the Rev. Nick Seward, BEng MA Headmaster this event would be established into our calendar as "Rohilla Day" fixed annually for the last Sunday in September an Exeat weekend, so we are free to roam and reminisce on The Hill.
