The Goldonian Winter 1957
First Afternoon Re-Union of Goldings Old Boys
All through the year many Old Boys are welcomed at Goldings. Some spend their leave from H. M. Forces or holidays from situations at the
School, others "pop in to say 'Hello'." However short or long such visits last the conversation always ends up by a discussion of the time "when
I was here". So it seemed that it might be a good idea to set aside a particular afternoon when it would be possible for Old Boys to foregather at
Goldings and know that they would meet their old friends.
Our first attempt, this year, was enjoyed by all those who came along. During the afternoon and over tea, old times were thoroughly gone over and
the more recent changes, too, discussed. Many changes were noted by the visitors especially those of the older generation. All agreed that the
afternoon which was set apart for such a purpose was a good idea and an event to be looked forward to. The second of these re-unions is fixed for
the first Sunday in October 1958. Make a note of the date.
It is 52 years this year since the the first official reunions began, also 40 years since the closing of The William Baker Technical School.

The Reunion is almost upon us, just a couple of weeks to go. Once more we are invited to Goldings by David and Denice to come and enjoy the
afternoon around the grounds of Goldings and for their hospitality we are very grateful for.
Itinerary of the day
The Hall opens for Old Boys and Visitors, Tea, Coffee, and Light Refreshments will be available until noon
12'o'clock you are invited to our former school for refreshment and wine kindly offered to us by David and Denise, and you can also visit the
grounds, and possibly the house in selected areas. Please respect the present day residents privacy. The Hall will shut at
1-30 so we can all be
present for the duration of our Memorial Service at Waterford All Saints Church at
3-30.The Hall will be re-opened 6-0 clock for the evening
meal at
7-0 clock. After the meal there will be a short lull to enable us to clear the tables.
The remainder of the evening for the raffle and a speech by David (Mr Wheatleys son and a former Old Boy) We are hoping that at sometime
before the Service for an Old Boy to carry out our former Bugle Calls hopefully on the steps where they were once played.
Enjoy the day, and your families as we recall the loss of our School 50 years ago this year. Was it the right decision to close it? I leave it to your
thoughts. Aftercare will be available for any enquires you may have in the early part of the day.
Admission is free: This year it has been 50 years since Goldings closed.

By popular demand this year we are doing Fish and Chips or Chicken and Chips,
(Donations are greatfully accepted)
We do cater for Vegetarians, provided we are informed well before the day.
