The suggestion for a reunion came in a  letter dated 24 August 2006 that Pedro Howes sent to Keith Bradshaw  and copied to me:

What a pity that there is not someone capable of organising a reunion for, say, all former pupils pre, say, the earliest date for which there has already been a reunion.   If I were living in  UK I might volunteer to organise it, but it is impossible from this distance.   I would certainly attend.   By copy of this message, I am asking Graham if he is aware of anyone of our era who loved school life to the same extent as I, and would be prepared to be Organiser.    Best Regards,       Pedro Howes (1947).

*      To get a year off the ground, someone had to start making the necessary phone calls and write letters.  The background to the success of the reunion was ultimately up to the individuals in each year taking up the responsibility!
