The coronavirus pandemic has brought huge changes to all our lives and the Year of 2020 OVs who completed their King’s education in the summer have been particularly impacted. With online lessons, cancelled exams and a cancelled King’s Day, this year has certainly not been what they expected. Due to the restrictions around Covid, the Development and Alumni Relations team were unable to hand out the 2020 leavers’ OV gifts in the summer as we would normally.
This year we sent our 2020 leavers a Christmas card with an invitation to collect their gifts of OV ties and OV pashminas and it’s been lovely to see some of them back at School briefly and hear how they’re getting on. This week our Development Director Liz gave an assembly to our current Upper Sixth about the OV community which they will become part of when they leave School in the summer.
