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.
