Around sixty people attended the event at the Winchester Hotel where memories were rekindled and the association president, Tony Paice, read Laurence Binyon's They shall not grow old, before a toast to absent old Symondians.

Principal Neil Hopkins, said: “Students remain (as they always were), fundamentally good and refreshingly well-intentioned. We are very proud of their achievements.”
