The Friends of Halstead is the alumni group of ex-pupils and is run by past and present parents. Our aim is to maintain the links between the school and past pupils and their families. We welcome all Year Six leavers as members of the alumni group, with a one-off subscription per family providing life membership.
Each year, as well as providing the Halstead teddy bear that each Nursery girl receives at their first Speech Day, the Friends publish a newsletter. This is circulated to all members, with the aim of keeping old girls and their families in touch with news, events and developments from Halstead. We also operate a babysitting directory of old girls, which can be made available to current parents upon request.
In the past the Friends have hosted reunions of past pupils and staff at the school; these have proved popular and have provided a great opportunity for a trip down memory lane! Looking to the future, the aim is to provide more of a focus for these reunions with the event featuring a specific year of former pupils.
