St James Church Of England Girls School Weybridge - Class of 46

The Class of 46

Recent reunions of St James C of E School Weybridge have been such a success, that everyone attending has asked for it to become an annual event. The first was held about 20 years ago when Maureen Amato (nee Eve) and Sheila Tribe (nee Tilbury) organised the event to surprise their friend Mavis Higgins who was coming over from America.

In 2003 another one was held with a small group attending and it was so enjoyable that a special effort was made to contact as many people as possible for the 2004 reunion. That was a great success with approximately 120 ex-pupils attending to reminisce and a lot of fun was had by all, especially trying to guess who was who!

Former classmates and friend came from all parts of the UK and from the USA and New Zealand.

2004 Reunion - Over 120 Friends gathered to share memories

Mrs Beal, a former teacher from the school who was Miss Hayward at the time, attended. She amazed everyone by correctly knowing who they all were by hearing their voices, which is remarkable considering she taught them over 50 years ago and how different everyone now looks. Mrs Beale was so fond of the children she taught, that she has kept in touch with many of them and the feelings were reciprocated with a presentation of flowers to Mrs Beal.

There is a modest contribution of 3 to cover the costs such as hall hire with any surplus going to local charities. In 2003 105 was gifted to the White Lodge Centre for disabled children and adults (Chertsey). In 2004 the beneficiaries were the Friends of Weybridge Hospital.

Many people bring along photos from the past for others to enjoy so if you're attending this year maybe you have some you can bring along?

Weybridge Memories
If you have any old photos of Weybridge, not just of the school, maybe you could e-mail a copy to the all about Weybridge website and we will publish many of them for others in the community to enjoy? In particular old pictures are becoming more and more scarce, so it would be nice to 'rescue them' and share them with others on the internet.

For example, reunion organiser Maureen Amato has provided some lovely photos of the Pelican Lane Outings, the Poets Corner Dancing Troop Pelican Lane Street Parties and the Weybridge Netball Team that you can see on this site.

If you have any old photos that you would like to
share with our community please send an email to:
