Michaelmas Day remembered!

Many thanks to Old Owenians, Valarie Cross (nee Stubbs) and Pamela Mansi (nee Stubbs), two of the four sisters who attended Owen’s from 1943-55, who once again sent us these beautiful flowers along with this note in honour of the old Owen’s Girls’ School’s birthday on 29th September:

‘Michaelmas Day was always celebrated as the School Birthday at Owen’s Girls School. Despite the school being in a poor state following the Second World War, on that day it looked glorious, decorated in every room with Michaelmas daisies. A further treat was birthday cake, usually an iced bun for everyone!  Happy Birthday everyone!’

Harvest Festival donations!

As part of our harvest festival celebrations we will be collecting non perishable foodstuffs, washing up liquid, toiletries and baby necessities for the Trussell Trust food bank. The Trussell Trust runs a network of over 400 foodbanks, giving emergency food and support to people in crisis across the UK,

Students should leave any donations in the brown boxes in the main foyer area opposite the hall ready for collection by the charity on Monday 9 October.

Many thanks for your support.
