Dorothy Stringer Alumni

After you have left Stringer life goes on. Students and Staff are now given the opportunity to register with the Alumni when they leave the school. This gives them a point of reference to find old friends, keep in touch with life at Stringer and also to be informed about reunions.
 
If you have not registered yet you can do so by emailing alumni@dorothy-stringer.co.uk. Your details will not be passed on to anyone outside of Dorothy Stringer School.
 
UPCOMING EVENTS
Stringer Open House and Ex-Student Reunion  Sunday 13th May 2018 – 11am to 4pm

Last year we held our first joint event combining the school's annual Open House with a Stringer Archive area and school tour's for ex-students. This proved very successful and a great opportunity for our ex-students to visit the school on one of the most vibrant days of the school calendar. So we are doing it again this year.

Not only will you see some wonderful students' art and design work but you will also see live performances from the Drama and Music Departments and be able to take part in some of the Environment Department's activities. It is truly a festival atmosphere with arts and crafts stalls from the local community and food and drink stalls too. What a better time to visit your old school; tour the school as it is now, revisit old memories, chat to other ex-students and perhaps share experiences over a cup of coffee and a piece of cake.

This year we will continue to organise an archive area in the training room (or once used as the milk or cycle shed, tuck shop or reprographics depending on your attendance dates); next to the block housing the main hall and heads office. The Stringer memorabilia or archive area is something we are trying to develop and would welcome new contributions. We also hope to have a video area so we can capture your memories and record how education and society has changed since the doors opened in 1955.

Although there is no entry charge for this event and therefore no tickets required, to help us plan the refreshments and numbers attending it would be helpful if you could let us know if you are planning to attend by using the contact details below. Also if you would like to book your place on a school tour please indicate which tour you would like to join. We plan to start tours at 11am and then hourly until 3pm, the time of the last tour.

Please help us by spreading the word. We would like to reach as many of our ex-Stringer students as possible so please do share this information with your friends via social media or good old word-of-mouth. 

It would be lovely to see lots of you at this Open House/Reunion Event; the more the merrier. If you plan to attend please let your own contacts know that you are coming and roughly what time so you can plan to meet up. Other commitments may affect the time you could attend but we thought it might be useful to encourage ex-students to attend from 11.00am.

Kind regards to you all and I look forward to seeing you again.

RECENT EVENTS
 
Reunion and Stringer Open House : Saturday 20th May 2017 – 11am to 4pm
 

We decided to try something new this year and merge our annual Open House event with our Stringer Reunion. It was a great opportunity for our ex-students and staff to visit the school on one of the most vibrant days of the school calendar. Not only did they see some wonderful students' art and design work but also saw live performances from the Drama and Music Departments and took part in some of the Environment Department's activities. It truly was a festival atmosphere with arts and crafts stalls from the local community and food and drink stalls too.

Miss Middleton and Mrs Moffat created a wonder a reunion area where ex-students met and shared experiences over a cup of coffee and some cake. 

We had a video booth to record memories and impressions of how education and society has changed since the doors opened in 1955. We are always looking for content for our Stringer memorabilia area; something we are trying to develop and welcome new contributions.

Sue Middleton (Stringer Staff 1975 to 2016)

P.S. This reunion replaced the 1st July 2017 date previously advertised on the school's website

WAYS TO SUPPORT YOUR SCHOOL

 

Stringer Diamond Fund: The school recently launched a Stringer Diamond Fund as part of the schools 60th celebrations (2015-16). This fund, separate from the school budget, will be used to support students where evidence is provided of exceptional circumstances and where no other funding sources are available. Several ex-students have expressed an interest in contributing to this fund; this can be done by sending a cheque to the school marked for the attention of The Business Manager.  Please write Stringer Diamond Fund - Alumni on the back of the cheque.  Alternatively you can make a donation on-line or if you would like to know more please send an email to the address above or come on Saturday 20th May and speak to Richard Bradford (Headteacher) or me. Thank you for your support.
