Reunion Coffee Morning - Saturday 12th May 2012.
The past pupils’ reunion which took place on Saturday 12th May was a resounding success. A good sized group of past pupils from the 1950s through to the 2000s came along and were thrilled to meet up with each other. Anthony Clifford, who left in the 60s, was able to bring a picture of himself as a young boy, and Peter and Christine Rogers and Susan Bradford brought in a class photo of 1954.

Mrs Renwick said that the next reunion will be on the first Saturday after the first bank holiday in May next year – don't forget to put that date in your diary!
Our Lady's Abingdon - 150th Celebrations 160 - 2010.
Our Lady’s Abingdon celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2010, and part of the celebrations included a reunion picnic for past pupils and staff on Saturday 19th June. Between 350 and 500 people attended the event – it became impossible to keep count – many travelling very long distances to get here, including the USA and New Zealand! We were very pleased to welcome pupils who had been here in the 1930’s right through to those who left in the 2000’s. Many were overwhelmed with happy memories and the comments heard throughout constantly referred to ‘being part of a family’. Peter Kearney, who was here until 1954 had fond memories of Sister Kevin, now Sister Ita, and referred to her as a strict but fair and caring teacher. Proudly clutching a photograph of his class, his only regrets were that he had lost touch with his best friend from school.
