Recent OCs: Back to the Future Day
June 10th, 2017 at 08:45
A letter to OCs who left in 2000 or after:
Back to the Future Day
Saturday 10 June 8.45am – 12.45pm
I am writing to request the pleasure of your company at a very special event we are running for our Lower Sixth, on Saturday 10 June, called “Back to the Future Day”.
This is a chance for our current Year12s, about to make plans for their lives, post-18, to meet and chat to Old Clayesmorians who left the School from 2000 onwards.
The premise for the morning is an opportunity for you, as OCs now graduated or in employment, to meet our students with the focus on: “How would you now advise your 17-year-old-self?” Just like the cult 80s film “Back to the Future” but minus the DeLorean, I am afraid. Can you help? Are you able to give up a morning of your time to meet up with students, as well as reminisce about your own school days? The legendary Clayesmore lunch will be provided (free of charge of course), and there will be an opportunity to meet up with staff who are still here!
We would love to see you and find out what you have been doing since leaving Clayesmore. If you think you can spare the time, or know of another OC who might, please would you email me firstname.lastname@example.org (a.k.a. Mrs Catherine Hayter) and let me know how you feel you could contribute to the morning.
We really look forward to you getting in touch and meeting you once again.
