Sixteen former pupils who had arrived at QEH in 1965 aged 11, celebrated 50 years by meeting together on 12 September from all parts of the country (and Ireland). Although some had remained closely in touch, others had not seen each other since leaving school.The 1965ers3The 1965ers2
Their day began at 12noon on Welsh Back where they boarded a river boat and enjoyed lunch and liquid refreshments before arriving at QEH at 4.00pm for a tour of school and tea.
 
They re-visited old haunts and perused old photographs. Many memories returned (although much of the school has been refurbished and might have been unfamiliar).
 
Further festivities were arranged throughout the evening. A thoroughly good 12 hours was had enjoying company, re-forging friendships and reminiscing about old times together.
