“Even twenty years after leaving Mount Anville, I feel an immediate sense of familiarity and friendship when I meet members of the class of 2000, no matter how long it has been since we last met. What constantly amazes me when I meet past pupils who were in other years in the school at the time, is that while their names are not always familiar, their faces are, even years later. I meet past pupils in every aspect of life, be it in work, socially or more recently, meeting many past pupils while dropping our daughters at the Montessori School and it is so lovely to experience the sense of comradery and shared experience that exists between past pupils of Mount Anville.“
