Back to the Aube, thirty years later

On Saturday 25 June 2016, exactly 30 years, to the day, after the LGB '86 graduation ceremony, 28 former students were joined by three retired staff members in the Greek Theatre at La Grande Boissière.

Friends reunited! (Full list of names below.)

Over drinks and snacks, everyone enthusiastically caught up and posed for photos (kindly taken by Year 11 student, aspiring photographer and open water swimmer* Margaret Koudriaev).

After this initial nostalgic moment on campus, the group walked over to the Restaurant La Courbe du Goût or – to use its more familiar name for alumni of that era – the Aube. Here the evening continued on the terrace, which has escaped the impact of time, with only a TV screen replacing the dart board!

 

A wonderful buffet dinner (highly recommended for any other groups considering a reunion at LGB) was served throughout the evening as the group went back in time and all felt like teenagers once more. The magical evening came to an end with promises not to wait another 30 years before meeting again!

The reunion was organized by Chantal Denton and Sabina Siddiqui. The other alumni who attended were: Alexandra Floris-Pialopoulos, Ali Daneshyar, Ana Jardim, Ana Mari Woehr, Anders Thorell, Annika Ringaby-Woehr, Daniel Flesher, David Unitt, Jacques Nobel, Joanne Williams-Howarth, Jurgen Nobel, Kavita Sethuraman, Mark Wilson, Mary-Louise Burge, Natalie Whitehurst, Nicholas Owen, Ossi Leikola, Rachael Horner, Susan Cable, Anthony Patwary, Michael William, Samer Darwiche, Mark Pathmarajah, Margret Francis Dällenback, Josephine Favre-Mbuli and Sandra Pinkstone. They were joined by retired Ecolint staff Frank Lunt, John Phillips and Michael Rowe.

ChaCha Team

 

*The LGB '86 reunion group was pleased to donate the funds that remained after the bill had been paid at the Aube to the ChaCha Swim Team, of which photographer Margaret Koudraiev is a member. This team of eight international school students will in August become the first under 18 relay team from Switzerland to swim the English Channel. It's a challenge they are taking on to raise raise money and awareness for Obstetric Fistula. More information: www.chacha.team
