In September 2016 was half a century since the cohort of 1966 to 1973 became pupils of Wolverhampton Girls' High School.

Lynda Kus (that was) is now the webmistress of the WGHSOGU site and the editor of the newsletter. She wanted to organise a reunion get together for all of those from that yeargroup.

We managed to get in touch with 26 members of the yeargroup (mainly from the K form - and we are still searching for more!).

A dozen of us attended this first reunion and a good time was had by all! We met up on a sunny autumn day in October 2016, had a tour of the school and a bring and share lunch, at Lynda's house. Delicious food and wine was accompanied by a soundtrack mix of hits of the era to remind us of 'of days past'.... and lots of chat! The years melted away!

In 2023 we met up again - this time to celebrate 50 years since we left the upper sixth and bade farewell to our schooldays – our second 'Golden Reunion'.

The first time a dozen of us had met up – this time it was a dozen too – but not the same people. There was no 'school tour' this time around - just plenty of chat and banter.

We met up at noon in the Wightwick Suite of the Mount Hotel Country Manor, Tettenhall on the 9 th August 2023 and had a wonderful 'afternoon tea'. The sun even shone for us (remember how dismal the beginning of August was!).

The four 'local girls' commuted to the hotel, but some of those from further afield stayed overnight in order to meet up – either at the hotel or at a friend's house.

Everyone agreed it had been well worth the effort, the years melted away as we relived our time at school and shared snippets of the half a century of living we have done since leaving school. We plan to meet up again in a couple of years time…. So watch this space!
