OGA Reunion: Lunch and Daytime / Black-Tie Dinner

OGA Reunion

Lunch and daytime

/ Black-tie Dinner


The Old Girls’ Association is hosting a special St James’s School, and St James’s & The Abbey School reunion on Saturday 11th June. We hope that you will join us for daytime activities that include an Old Girls lunch, tours of the St James’s building, tea at the St James’s building; and, in the evening, a black-tie dinner at MSJ with musical performances by Old Girls conducted by former Head of Music at St James’s, Mrs Lynne Lindner. This is a special reunion to celebrate the 125th anniversary of the founding of St James’s School byAlice and Katrine Baird. We will have former staff join us, and I hope that parents of Old Girls may also wish to join us. Do please spread the word to friends and family. For the dinner, tables can be booked in 10s, or you can sign up individually or in smaller groups, and we will place you with others from your year group.Technically, the 125th should have been celebrated last year in 2021, but Covid restrictions forced us to reschedule. I hope you will still wish to join us, belated but undeterred! The black-tie dinner in the evening will also serve as a rescheduled farewell to Mrs Lynne Lindner who was Head of Music at St James’s School and Head of Vocal Studies and Music Performance at Malvern St James from 1993-2020. Lynne’s contribution to music at both schools has been enormous, and we will be treated to musical vignettes arranged by Lynne through the course of the dinner, by our Old Girl performers.
