Leavers’ Day not only marks the end of the Upper Sixth’s time at Abingdon, but also celebrates their induction as a member of the Old Abingdonian Club. We were delighted to welcome the OA Club President, David Lindgren (1993) and Matt Boyd (2011) to address the 188 new members of the Club.
David commented on how proud the Club is of the “resilience and positivity shown by this year’s leavers in light of the challenges they have faced” and suggested that they think of the Club as their Sherpas on their journey ahead. Matt’s key message to the pupils was to “be brave, be curious, be adaptable and be proud” and in his concluding remarks, he asked the pupils to hold themselves to high standards.
We look forward to seeing the leavers in person at OA Club events soon.
