SJL 80th CelebrationsPosted on 27/09/2019
Sunday, 22 September 2019, Sir John Lawes School threw open the doors to celebrate its 80th year. With in excess of 1000 tickets issued for the celebration it was a busy and thriving afternoon with a variety of exciting activities for the alumni to enjoy, including:
- Admiring artwork by students past and present and creating a memory of their own
- Performances by music ensembles featuring returning musicians
- Recording memories of their time at SJL in the TV Studio
We were thrilled to be joined by a small number of original students, attending Manland Secondary School back in 1939, who gave a recount of the school's delayed opening due to World War II. Guests also included a number of international alumni, with the farthest travelled being Texas, USA.
Our thanks to the Class of 1992 and 2004 who provided a competitive challenge to the Staff Team in the alunmi football tournament. A hard fought competition, which resulted in the Staff being victorious.
