Welcome to the Queen’s Alumni Newsletter 2020. I’m sure you’ll agree that this has been a year full of challenges so far and hope that you will accept my apologies for its delayed publication.
One of those changes for many of us has been the shift of our communications into a world of virtual connection rather than face-to-face contact. I know I am amazed by the wonders of modern technology, but still very much miss being on School premises each week. However, a silver lining seems to be that in various contexts the boundaries between past and present pupils have blurred - meaning that in some ways there has been more connectedness than ever!
I know that many readers will be glad to see more information about our 150 for 150 Bursary Appeal, launched last November, with the aim of raising £150,000 by the School’s 150th birthday in 2028. More than ever now we are concerned to be able to offer a Queen’s education to girls from as diverse a range of backgrounds as possible. We gratefully receive all help of any level that alumni and friends of The Queen’s School are able to give to this campaign.
With my very best wishes for your health and happiness in the rest of 2020 and beyond.
