On Friday 6th December, familes of Havelock Farm Boys came together for the first reunion in 75 years to share their histories of the Founder's farm in Canada. Stories were exchanged and connections made during the afternoon which brought together 30 people from Ontario and beyond. Relatives came from as far as California to Old St Paul's Church in Woodstock, 90 miles south of Toronto to meet with fellow descendents of the Farm Boys.
Full details about the Havelock Farm reunion have been announced. The event will take place at Old St Paul's Church, 723 Dundas St, Woodstock, ON, Canada on Friday 6th December. The afternoon will begin at 1:00pm with an opportunity to meet other relatives of Havelock Farm boys with a service at 4:00pm followed by supper in the Church Hall. We are very grateful to Old St Paul's Church for hosting this event.
Headmaster, Nick Seward, will be visiting the USA at the beginning of December, and as part of his trip would be very interested to meet any KHS former pupils who live in the States. He will be in the Washington DC area as well as Boston, Massachusetts during the course of his stay, before flying north to Woodstock, Ontario in Canada for the Havelock Farm reunion. If you would like to attend the alumni gathering, which will take place near Washington DC, or arrange a individual meeting, please do get in touch with Harriet Atkinson.
Kingham Hill School is looking to explore its fascinating links with Ontario. Between 1895 and 1946 ten boys a year left the school to be trained in agriculture on a farm in Ontario purchased by the school’s founder, Charles Edward Baring Young.
