    OKA Summer Reunion 2020

     Saturday 27 June 2020

    The date has been confirmed for our main event in the OKA calendar - please make sure it is in your diaries...!
      
    Key activities are outlined below and 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.

    Sports Fixtures

    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 Family

    OKs are welcome to bring their families along!  For those of you with children there will be a Bouncy Castle to keep them occupied plus, of course, there also the grounds for children to run around, so there should be plenty to keep them busy while you catch up with old school friends.  We also hope that the swimming pool will  be open in the afternoon for OKs and their families.

    Tours

    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.

    School Memorabilia

    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.

    Refreshments

    Refreshments are available from 12.00 pm onwards in the guise of a BBQ and Bar; 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:
