Memories from an ex GHS student:
I attended Golders Hill School from 1985-1988 – in my fact I was fortunate enough to have Mrs Eglash as my form teacher in my last year!
I have extremely fond memories of my time at Golders Hill School. There is something about the sense of community – whether it be amongst the children or amongst the parents – that envelops the school that makes for an incredibly, warm and nurturing atmosphere.
I formed close bonds with many of my class mates who I am still in touch with 30 years later. So much so in fact that my best friend (we were each other’s best man at our respective weddings some 8 years ago) was someone I met at Golders Hill one fateful afternoon during our weekly spelling test. The fact that we got in trouble for talking during that test is beside the point!
Which brings us to a few years ago. Some 27 years later, I found myself back at Golders Hill – introducing my wife to the school as we checked it out for our son who was 2 at the time. Here is the incredible part. Mrs Eglash remembered me, my sister, my mum, my dad and what hat he used to wear when he picked us up. Basically everything. Immediately I felt I was back in that caring environment and we quickly signed up my son and a few years later, my daughter.
They both had a great experience and Golders Hill - and each ended up in the School’s we had hoped for them.
Today, my children have fond memories of Golders Hill very much in the same way I do and even stay in contact with many of the friends they made there even though they are now all in different schools.
Testimonial from an ex GHS student:
Going to Golders Hill is one of my most cherished memories of my childhood. The caring and kind atmosphere has made me into the person I am today. I remember it often, especially when I pass by the school, and am so grateful for the friends I made then and still carry with me to this day.
A message from a parent, whose child left GHS the previous year:
"Hi Mrs Eglash,
I thought you would like to see these pictures. Their strong bond was forged in your school, and still today one year on even though they have all moved onto different schools, their bond is as strong as ever.
The pictures were taken yesterday. They won the cup final of their football league. Much excitement (as you can imagine!)
Thank you for having created such a wonderful environment for our boys to flourish in."
