The Durham Reunion Lunch this year was held in the Chequers public house in Churchill, close to Kingham Hill. Though some previous Durhamites couldn't attend through prior commitments, went the day well, if you'll excuse the quote, and it saw the return of other faces.
All Hillians are very welcome to attend Rohilla Day, our annual autumn reunion which takes place every year on the last Sunday of September.
Chapel service at 12noon, coffee and registration in the Library from 11:30am.
Cost £15 per person, including two course lunch and refreshments.
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.
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.

Durham's Reunion Lunch 2013 was again in the Chequers in Churchill, with Ralph and Elizabeth Mann, Nick and June Bonnett, Charles Carter, who had a long distance to drive, Iain Helstrip organising again, wife Nicky, Nick Thompson, Tony and Daphne Dee, 'Westie' West, who energetically turned up on bicycle, not all the way from Kaliningrad hopefully, and Pete Rozycki.
Closing Date for Bookings is the 19th September
Old Boys, Girls, Teachers and Staff are invited to join with us on this special day to remember the Rohilla, and those tragically lost all those years ago; by annually holding this reunion on the last Sunday each September on 'Rohilla Day'.
The day is not just for people who actually remember those who were lost it is also for any former student or member of staff from our unique club, 'those who lived or worked at the school', an opportunity to meet or reunite.
We're a few players short of a full team for the OBG (Old Boys & Girls) to play the school on KHA Reunion day, Saturday 23rd June. Anyone who is free that day, or who has already arranged to come, how about getting a little closer to that crack of willow on leather than you had previously planned, grab your whites and have a game instead of just watching?
Any takers, please contact Ed Wormington on:
