OKA Summer Reunion 2021
Saturday 3 July 2021
All being well, the OKA Summer Reunion will go ahead! The format of the day may be slightly different than usual and will probably be tweaked as regulations are hopefully eased over the next few weeks, but we will endeavour to continue with the usual key activities outlined below.
As plans for the day progress over the next few months this page will be updated. In the meantime, if you are interested in coming along, thinking about planning a year group reunion or would simply like further information, please do not hesitate to contact Helen Hopperton.
Matches against School teams will be played throughout the day; the match timings are as follows:
0900 Canoeing - Huntingdon
1100 Tennis (Ladies & Men's) - Castle Courts
1100 Rounders - Heath Field
1130 1st XI Cricket - Castle Pitch
1300 2nd XI Cricket - Welsted Pitch (Prep School)
1300 Sailing - Grafham Water
1400 Year Group Football Tournament - The Mall
Please contact the relevant Sports Manager or Helen Hopperton if you are interested in playing - although OKs do have a competitive spirit, matches are relaxed with the focus on getting OKs together and enjoyment of the sport in question, so you do not need to be an expert to take part!
Fun for the FamilyOKs are welcome to bring their families along! While we may not be able to have a bouncy castle available this year (due to the need to sanitise after each use?) to keep your children entertained and occupied, we do hope that the swimming pool will be available; if this does not materialise, then there is of course the vast grounds for children to run around!
A tour of the Castle will be organised during the afternoon.
OKs will be free to wander around the School, however we cannot guarantee that all buildings and classrooms will be open, therefore if you would specifically like to view a particular area please get in touch with Helen Hopperton beforehand.
Photos, old school magazines etc. will be on display in the Green Room all day and the Heritage Room in the Castle during the afternoon.
We are planning for a Bar to be available from 12.00 pm onwards and this will be open until late afternoon; hopefully there will be a BBQ available over lunchtime and complimentary Afternoon Tea will be served in the Saloon at 3.00pm.
You are welcome to bring your own picnics!
Year Group Reunions
The Summer Reunion is a great opportunity to organise year group reunions; we usually see groups of OKs getting together to celebrate a specific anniversary of leaving school (1st, 5th, 10th ... up to 40th, 50th & 60th!). If you haven't already been in touch with your old school friends and are interested in getting a group together, please get in touch with the OKA Office who will be happy to help.
Year group contacts will be added below as they are confirmed - to find out more about their plans please get in touch with the contact listed:
OKA SUMMER BALL
The summer reunion will continue into the evening with the OK Summer Ball - tickets for this popular social event in the OK calendar are now on sale.
