Former Parents' (2011 - 2014) Drinks Reception
Friday 13th May 2016

Florence Dyas

On Friday 13th May 2016, we hosted a drinks reception for the parents of the leavers of 2011-2014. Fifteen former parents attended and enjoyed drinks and canapés in Dr Kirk’s Study and some went on for a pub supper. 

The aim of the event was to keep in touch former parents and hear how their daughters are getting on – as well as to continue to share news and promote the school and all our projects. 

We have received some lovely letters of thanks. One parent wrote, “Thank you very much indeed for inviting us to such a happy gathering last Friday. Oliver and I both felt that it was such a nice idea and that it very much summed up the spirit of the school: once a Calne Girl, always a Calne Girl, and once a Calne Parent, always a Calne Parent!”

The Cantabile Concert Series presents...
An Evening of Song & Swing with
the Royal Air Force Squadronaires Big Band


On Friday 22 April St Mary’s School hosted a spectacular evening of song & swing with The RAF Squadronaires (by kind permission of the Air Force Board of the Defence Council). The third concert in the acclaimed Cantabile Concert series continues to raise money for the Armed Forces Fund, which provides education to children who have a parent, or any rank, killed or wounded in active service. The Squadronaires added a particularly appropriate tone.
