MK welcomes back the Class of 68

Mount Kelly welcomed back the Class of 1968 for a fabulous '50 Years On' reunion on 13 October 2018. Some 20 OMKs returned to School - many of them for the first time since leaving - and thoroughly enjoyed lunch, tours, tea and a chance to catch up with old friends and former teachers, John Mann and John Killingbeck. A number of them had come from abroad, including Canada, USA and Belgium, and it was a very happy occasion for all who attended. Click here to view a photo album of the event.

A great afternoon of sport

On Saturday 18th March, Mount Kelly was delighted to welcome lots of former pupils back for an afternoon of hockey and netball fixtures against the School's 1st teams.

Netball:
Old Mount Kelleains: 26   Mount Kelly: 18

Playing for the OMK’s were:
Molly Scott, Rhianna Durbar, Louisa Frost, Rosannah Morel, and staff members Lou Bott and Becky Callard. Pupil Christie Milne kindly stepped in and played for the OMKs.

The play started at a fast pace with extremely accurate shooting from both sides. Sophie and Chezzie (MK) had their work cut out playing in the attacking circle for the Mount Kelly team and had to keep moving to get free from the defensive OMK pairing of Louisa and Rosannah . Ellana, Olivia and Lottie (MK) played well in the centre court but were equally matched by the OMK centre court players Becky, Lou and Christie both for fitness and skill. Molly and Rhianna both had a fantastic match at Goal Attack and Goal Shooter for the OMKs and had an excellent percentage conversation rate of goals. Equally, at the other end of the court, Chezzie and Sophie scored some fantastic long range shots for the MK team, and did very well against their tall opponents. The OMK team slowly edged ahead and had their best quarter in the 3rd beating us 9-4, the Mount Kelly girls did not give up and fought back in the last quarter drawing it making the final score 26-18 to the OMK team.

Hockey:

Old Mount Kelleians: 1   Mount Kelly: 3
Playing for the OMKs were:
Bob Carr, Henry Chamberlain, Dan Goldstone, Rob Grove, Will Jones, Josh Kappes, Chris Monger, Ryan Passmore, Oliver Richards, Alex Shephard & Harry Williams.

The OMK team, comprising several University and Club players, provided strong opposition for the School's 1st XI but the school took a crucial lead at the end of the first half with a powerful reverse stick shot from Tom Rogers. The OMKs responded early in the second half to level the score but another short corner routine enabled Leon Horn to score a second for the younger side and a late volley from Tom Rogers gave the school a well deserved 3-1 victory. 

Both matches proved to be thoroughly enjoyable and, whilst never ceasing to be competitive, were played in a spirit of great camaraderie and good humour.

A fantastic evening
Dozens of Old Mount Kelleians spanning various generations gathered in Somerset House in Bristol for an informal drink on Tuesday 9th February for what turned out to be a fantastic evening in which everyone caught up with old friends, former staff and school news. This is one of our first regional events and the feedback from OMKs who have attended has been overwhelmingly positive so we will certainly be making them a regular feature of the OMK Calendar!

OMK team vs. Mount Kelly v. 1st XI

Congratulations to the OMK Girls’ Hockey team who played a closely-contested match against the Mount Kelly 1st XI girls on Saturday 3rd December, resulting in a 1-0 win for the school side.

After a cold but thankfully dry morning, players and spectators were able to warm up with hot soup, bacon butties and delicious cakes. Many thanks to the OMK team captain and former Mount House and Kelly College pupil, Olivia Eadie (2002-11), who spread the word to get the team together and to all those who came to play and cheer on the OMKs.  We look forward to seeing as many of them as possible next year.
