reunion of former pupils from 60 years of a school's history was
a daunting prospect. Many had moved from the area and did not
see the publicity about the event. Nevertheless, on a hot and
sunny 20th June 1998 hundreds of people filled the classrooms,
hall and playing field of William Torbitt School in Ilford, Essex.

was, therefore, a pleasure to hear the buzz of conversation and
amazed recognition as people came face to face with long lost
Naturally, people were curious about how their friends looked,
what they had done with their lives and (in the case of the men
- how much hair they still had!). They also came to re-visit their
memories of the classrooms (how tiny were those desks?) and, in
some lucky cases to meet up with their teachers. This was a special
pleasure since we had all benefited from their patient efforts.
It was a somewhat surreal experience with unexpected memories,
confusion and laughter. All in all a day to remember.
