As part of Bedales’ efforts to support and stay connected with the network of Old Bedalians, every year the Alumni Relations division of the school’s External Relations team organise several reunions.
For recent leavers, these gatherings come in the form of university reunions, which are organised by Alumni Liaison Manager Leana Seriau, University Liaison Officer Sarah Oakley and Alumni Officer Philip Parsons and hosted in cities or towns where Old Bedalians have gone on to study at university.
Last Thursday, 29 November, the series of university reunions continued in Bristol, where eight Old Bedalians studying at Bristol and Cardiff met – joined by Sarah and Philip – at the Hotel du Vin to renew acquaintance and share their post-Bedales experiences.
Students from the 2015, 2016 and 2017 year groups were all represented and subjects studied include History of Art, French, Law, Classics, Medicine, Theology, Economics and Pharmacy.
As their first official reunion as Old Bedalians, it was a very enjoyable evening and, as with previous events, we find it a useful way of keeping in touch and maintaining the extended Bedales family.
