Celebrating the Foundation in 1928 of Chichester High School for Boys – Saturday 20th October 2018
Later this year it is 90 years since Chichester High School for Boys was founded and so the alumni association, The Old Cicestrians, with the support of Chichester High School, is organising a celebration and reunion open to all former students and staff and their partners on Saturday 20th October 2018 at the High School.
The day will begin with a fascinating audio visual talk tracing the history of the school, it’s students and staff through its nine decades. There will be displays of photographs and memorabilia through the ages, a celebration of the achievements of past students and tours of the present school.
A buffet lunch will be provided with hot and cold drinks available throughout and plenty of opportunities to catch up with old friends and note how time has moved on since your first day in a green blazer!
After lunch there will be a visit to the award winning Chichester Planetarium (which is on the school site) with a talk about the Planetarium and Tim Peake by Dr John Mason the Education Officer and Trustee who himself attended CHSB, where his interest in space was sparked.
Keen to hear from former students
The Old Cicestrians are keen to hear from all former students and staff with the hope as many as possible will attend. In particular please get in touch and tell us your memories and reminiscences that we might be able to include in the presentation. Please tell us about former students who have achieved something special. Perhaps Tim Peake the astronaut is the former student most in the public eye, but many others have achieved great things and made an impact at international, national and local levels – we want to hear about it! Also if anyone has memorabilia or photographs they could lend or allow to be copied please get in touch.
More information will be available soon on our website www.oldcicestrians.co.uk and our Facebook group page or can be sent out by email or post upon request .
