Reunion marks school's 75th birthday

IT was back to school time for former pupils of St Joseph’s Convent School in Kenilworth.

They were welcomed, some two years later than originally planned, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of the founding of a school on the site.

Now known as Crackley Hall School, a prep school of the Princethorpe Foundation, the current headmaster Rob Duigan, and staff and pupils were on hand to help celebrate the anniversary.

The event was well-attended with pupils and teachers from across the generations including former headmistresses Philomena Bowers and Lesley Cox, and teachers Maureen Hazelwood, Rachel Taylor and Brigitte Wood.

The guests were treated to a performance by Crackley Hall’s Chamber Choir in the new school hall.

And a tour of the school included the chance to see the stained-glass window and ceiling boss relocated from the original school chapel.

Mr Duigan said: “Our sincere thanks go to all the current staff, pupils and parents who contributed to the celebrations and also to all the past pupils and teachers who attended and made the event such a great success.

“We hope everyone enjoyed their walk down memory lane and look forward to seeing all our old pupils in 2025 when the school will celebrate its 80th Anniversary!”
