Reunion: Photos help jog memories for 'old boys'
AROUND 40 'old boys' braved a wet and windy evening to meet up for the annual Penzance Grammar/Humphry Davy School reunion.
The shindig was held at the Queen's Hotel on December 29 where memories were jogged by a computer slideshow of old school photographs.
The event was held by the Old Penwithians' Association (OPA), which was set up by Bill Burnett, one of the staff members of the school.
Andrew Coak, secretary of OPA, said: "Old boys were also given the opportunity to add missing names. The oldest old boy present was Dr Arnold 'Derry' Derrington of the 1933 entry who was accompanied by his 57-year-old son, David.
