Saturday, 5th March saw over 160 past and present students, staff and special guests gather to celebrate the life of Sarah Cowley, whose benefaction made in 1714 forms the endowment of Cowley.
The event, organised by former Cowley teacher, Mrs Allock, included historical items of interest for guests to view as well as a speech from a current Cowley trustee Councillor Bowden and an engaging insight into Cowley’s past from Mrs Wilde.
The event saw guests entertained by the Cowley Veterans’ All star band (featuring Mr Dobbs, former Head of Music, on piano) and singing from Parish C of Es choir. The event ended with dramatic acting and singing from Cowley Institute of Performing Arts (CIPA) students who performed excerpts from their recent production of CATS.
Mr Sheeran and Cowley would like to thank all those who attended and to offer special thanks to Mrs Allcock for organising.
