Last weekend, Kingswood celebrated the Class of 1963’s 60th reunion. The weekend included several highlights including a braai, a trip to Commem as well as a delicious dinner. It was a weekend to remember!
The weekend’s festivities began on the afternoon of Friday the 10th of March. Registration took place in the museum where class members were able to meet and greet. The evening consisted of a traditional South African “braai”. The Junior School boarders joined the class up at the Wyvern, where they gave a memorable rendition of the school war cry. The Junior School girl boarders made beautiful book marks attached to chocolates which they then handed out to each guest. This wonderful gesture was followed by an evening filled with reminiscing and laughter.
Saturday morning kicked off with a delicious brunch in the Senior School Staff Room, followed by a campus tour. The group then headed to Commem, where they attempted to locate their carvings. This is always a special occasion, filled with nostalgia. Finally, the reunion weekend was wrapped up with a wonderful meal at the Wyvern, where they were addressed by College Head, Mr Leon Grove. The “In Memoriam” list was read out by Mr Peter Collett (OK 1963), and the choir gave a memorable performance of “God be with you till we meet again”.
It was a wonderful weekend, and an enormous thank you must be made to Mr Benje Behm (OK 1963), for all his assistance in organising. We thank all those who attended, and most importantly those who travelled from abroad. It was incredibly special that you could be here. Thank you!
