We had a conference back in June and it was on the history of the school. More than 300 people attended the conference, and it had the feel of a reunion to it, as even though we see a lot of each other in the Deaf community anyway, there were past pupils who flew in from abroad, and some who never met other Deaf people for over 30 years. One such woman was so delighted to see her classmates again, after 35 years.
As it was, after I gave my presentation on the school's history from 1846-1910, I soon went home.
Far too many people there.
