On Thursday June 11th, 2009 we welcomed back alumni from professions related to BRGS Maths and Computing Specialist Status
In 2008 BRGS hosted a professional alumni event for all our past students who had followed careers in the Legal and Finance professions and it was extremely well supported. This year, in celebration of the award of our Maths and Computing Specialist Status, we were delighted to welcome back alumni from related professions such as the IT, Teaching, Engineering, Surveying and the Energy Sector. We were also pleased that so many of our Year 12 students were able to join us for drinks and a light buffet.
Our guests enjoyed the opportunity to meet alumni of all ages and to keep up to date with the latest developments at BRGS. They were also joined by a small number of our 6th form students who certainly welcomed the opportunity to learn about their various professions and also hear one or two amusing anecdotes from their time at BRGS!
The reception was followed by a tour of the school; for some of the alumni it was their first trip back since the 1950s and the feelings of nostalgia certainly shone through! The evening was rounded off perfectly with an opportunity to enjoy the musical talents of our students as they performed in a lower school concert. Our sincere thanks go to all of those alumni who travelled from far and wide to join us, it was a most enjoyable evening and we very much look forward to welcoming you back to BRGS again soon.
