The Class of 2021 Crystal Ivies
Crystal Ivies is the names we give to the girls who have been at Croydon High since either Nursery or Reception right through until the Upper Sixth. On Wednesday, this year’s Crystal Ivies, Elizabeth, Annabella, Ariya, Milina and Keya were treated to a special celebratory yet socially distanced lunch in the new Holt Hall foyer, with Mrs Pattison, Mrs Bradshaw and Mrs Gower, as well as their nursery class teachers ( from 2006!) Mrs Pickett and Mrs Grinham. Mrs Pattison asked questions about their junior school years at Croydon High and the memories came flooding back of trips to London, Nettlecombe and France and school productions – Nativity plays, Charlotte’s Web and the Year 6 play Dazzle! Our current Nursery girls then arrived and surprised our Crystal Ivies, at a distance, with songs and tales of worms and butterflies.
At the end of the day, after the Nursery girls had headed home, the Crystal Ivies returned to their former classrooms in the Junior School for more nostalgic chats with Mrs Pickett.
Our Crystal Ivies now become part of the Ivy Link Alumnae network alongside all of the Class of 2021. We wish them all well and look forward to seeing this exceptional year group at future reunions and events, once we are through to the other side! Once a Croydon High girl always a Croydon High girl.
