The Association would love to hear about any other events you would like to have, either held at the School or in any other part of the country. Members are geographically spread far and wide, but this should not restrict anyone from holding a local event or reunion. Assistance can be given with arranging reunions or tracing former pupils and visits to School are always welcomed.

We have modified the reunion schedule to secure two reunion dates each school year, one in the autumn and one in the spring, and will host multiple year groups on each of these dates.
Reunions at St Columba’s generally follow one of two formats:
- welcome drinks, tour of school and lunch
- welcome drinks and tour of school
11:00 Meet at Senior School for bucks fizz, tea/coffee (old photos and magazines will be on display)
11:45 Tour of school
13:00 Two-course lunch with wine (approx. £25/head)
15:00 Close (and continue the event in someone’s house or another venue)
We can help with generating the invite and can promote your reunion via Facebook, FP page on the School website and the Columban.
So, Head Boys and Head Girls - or those who love to organise a party - if you would like help to arrange your reunion, please get in touch with the Development team. Call 01505 872238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
