1. Reunions and Celebration of the Brotherhood
The GCLOBA Spirit 2018 witnessed lots of reunions across class sets. Members of various class sets from all corners of the world assembled to rekindle old flames and reignite old memories . It was remarkable as each of these class sets gave something back to the School. The Reunion which had came with various theme, all served a singular purpose – Unite old friends, promote GCL.
The diaspora members were not left out as GCLOBA Members in North America all gathered in Maryland and Washington DC from the 26th to the 28th of November for the third reunion of the body. As 2018 rolls by one can comfortably describe 2018 as the year of Reunions. We hope to see more Reunions and events from class sets in 2019. However something more remarkable than the Reunions must be the GCL Spirit. This GCL Spirit makes old boys give to the School. This GCL Spirit of giving was massively witnessed in 2018. Whenever the School called, an old boy was there to answer. The 88 set presented Chairs, Tables, Notebooks and Cash to the School.
The 89 set presented Jerseys to the School team.
