Old Cranbrookians' Day 2024

Revisit the excitement of Old Cranbrookians' Day!

OC Day 2024

On Saturday, we celebrated Old Cranbrookians' Day, an event dedicated to welcoming back our alumni to the school. The day was centred around a vibrant sports programme featuring OCs participating in rugby, netball and hockey matches. These spirited school 1XI vs. OC games showcased our school's strong sporting legacy and provided an exciting spectacle for all those who attended.

Among those returning was an OC who had not visited Cranbrook since he departed in 1964. His return added a profound historical resonance to the event, enriching the atmosphere with his recollections of times past at Cranbrook, sparking lively discussions among fellow OCs and current students.

Additional activities included a delightful session of croquet in the Walled Garden, which attracted both beginners and experienced players alike. This provided a genteel complement to the more competitive team sports, fostering a friendly environment for socialising and enjoyment.

The day was further enhanced by a car wash and various bake sales organised by our students and staff. The bake sales featured an array of homemade treats, demonstrating the school community's baking prowess and adding to the day's festive spirit.

The Sports Department, led by Al Carter, was instrumental in the day’s success, ensuring that each event ran seamlessly. Their outstanding efforts in organising the matches and engaging both current students and OCs underscore their dedication to promoting sportsmanship and athletic excellence at Cranbrook.

Attendees also enjoyed a BBQ lunch prepared by our exceptional catering team, and the Cranbrook School Parents' Association (CSPA) served a delightful afternoon tea and Pimm’s, which were particularly appreciated amidst the day's activities.

We are fortunate to have such an extensive network of OCs, whose careers and studies may take them far from Cranbrook, but who find a warm welcome back to where their journeys began.
