The sun came out just in time for our OMK Day* and what a glorious day it was!
The day kicked off with a keen group from the Class of 2003 who arrived at the Parade Ground in the morning to set off on a walk up Cox Tor for old times' sake. Next it was the turn of the golfers* at Tavistock Golf Club who all looked in it for a chance at tee-off, although it was Nikki Ormond (1975-77) who took the members' prize and Jeremy Horn (1968-72) the vistors' prize.
Meanwhile, the OMK Cricket* match v MK 1st XI back at the College started at 12:30, and everyone was thankful for the glorious spring sunshine! The team was captained by Leon Horn (2016-18) who has also just begun his first season as Head of Cricket at MK. Dozens of OMKs and friends came for the afternoon, and many enjoyed a trip down memory lane with our amazing pupils who gave tours and who, in turn, enjoyed listening to the antics of their predecessors! Tea was served by the Pavilion and everyone relaxed and enjoyed catching up in the warm sunshine with the backdrop of our beautiful school in all of its green glory.
It was then a quick turn around for a black-tie dinner where 100 guests gathered for Evensong in Chapel and drinks in the Library. Many thanks to Rev Andew Corness (1985-87) for officiating and Jonathan Mann (1969-75) for playing the organ. Dinner* was served in Big School, with Grace given by Sara Hirst (Former Staff 1982-95). At the end of the meal, the Head Master gave an uplifting 'State of the Nation' and we were then treated to the very wise, insightful and honest words of Dawn Airey (1977-79), whose impressive career and experience is inspirational to all OMKs and none more so than our female pupils.
