OH Annual Dinner 2022

Saturday 10 September 2022 at Hymers College
22 Sep 2022

This year's annual Old Hymerians Dinner was held at the school on 10 September 2022 and was a celebration of the Music Department.  It was lovely to see so many of our alumni during the evening, thank you to those that had traveled across the country to attend.  We were also privileged to have former staff in attendance, with Mrs Chorlton (1987-2006), Mr King (1974-2006), Mr Fitzpatrick (1980-2016), Mr Nicholls (1982-2015), Mrs Dyson (1984-1995), Mrs Hood (2001-08) and of course our guest speaker, Mr Penny (1977-current).

At the start of the evening, guests enjoyed drinks on The Terrace while listening to music performed by music teachers Mr Quick and Mr Bartlett.

In light of the recent events prior to the evening, Headmaster Justin Stanley paused to reflect on the life of Her Late Majesty The Queen, along with a moments silence, the National Anthem, and a toast to King Charles.

President Helen Saunders (OH 1990-2000) welcomed guests to the evening, which was hosted by Master of Ceremonies, Sky News Correspondent Rebecca Johnson (OH 1995-2001).

Andrew Penny, current Music teacher who will retire at the end of the year was the guest speaker. His amusing spoof assembly reflected on his 45 years of music at Hymers College. Rebecca then chatted to alumni Joseph Nariculam (OH 1983-93) and Will Hairsine (OH 1992-97) 'In the hot seat' about their memories of Hymers College and their lives since leaving the school. The evening was rounded off by music teacher, Mr Shepherd's band, CubaDrive, providing lively entertainment in the old gym as alumni danced the evening away.

Thank you to Tuber Group for agreeing to be our main sponsor and to James Legal Solicitors, Leafe Consultancy, and Smailes Goldie Group for their support in helping to provide a hugely successful evening. Thank you to everyone who helped with the evening and came to support the evening.  We look forward to seeing more new and familiar faces at our future events.
