OA Day 2017
The weather was glorious and smiles wide, as 149 people gathered from all over the World, for OA Day and a Paull’s House reunion.
As Paull’s has been an all-girls House since 2009, all old girls had been specially invited to the reunion. The occasion also marked the next stage of development in girls’ education at Aldenham, as Riding’s will become a girls’ day house in September 2017.
Still the majority of Paull’s OAs are men however and the guest profile reflected this, some returned to Aldenham this year for the first time since they left as teenagers. After coffee in The Wells Centre and an opportunity to visit Paull’s House, a thanksgiving service was held in Chapel, followed by drinks in Paull’s House garden and then a delicious lunch in the Dining Hall.
In the afternoon, as the sun continued to blaze, guests enjoyed the beautiful school grounds and gathered for tea by the cricket Pavilion, where the John Dewes match was in full swing, won by the School Barbados Tourers.
