If you were at the 20-Year Reunion (two years late) in 2003, you will recall that
it was absolutely relaxed and everyone had a great time. Lunch was wonderful and
there was an atmosphere of complete ease.
Arriverderci, Arriverderci, chaps,
The lofty spires of H.G.S. recede in shrouded mists
As higher portals of burnished gold beckon.
Our bodies gone from here, our minds retain the lessons
learnt, as chisel-marks on the rocks of our mortality.
“I’ll remember, I’ll remember
The rooms where I was taught
The little blackboard where the staff
Didst grant us what we sought.”
O Hampton, O Hampton
Thou quenched our thirst
Now grateful we leave, the serried ranks depart
And the Dutch Elm of education has shed
another black and yellow Autumn.
An ancient parchment has been uncovered, which gives a complete list of ‘the Last
of the Grammars’ etc
