Channing Class of 2021 Reunion Event

Monday 28 March, 6-8pm

Certificates Celebration

It is with great pleasure that Mrs Lindsey Hughes invites you and your family to celebrate your A level achievements with fellow classmates and teachers.

Date: Monday 28 March, 6-8pm
Venue: Certificates presentation in the Arundel Centre followed by a drinks & canapés reception in Founders’ Hall

Guest Speaker: Kitty Underhill

Kitty Underhill joined Channing in year 7 in 2004 and left after sitting her AS & A levels in 2011; she then went on to study Applied Psychology & Sociology at Brighton University.

Now, Kitty is a model, body acceptance & self-love advocate and public speaker. After struggling with her body image for years, she decided to use her platform online to discuss and challenge what we have learned about our own bodies and other bodies unlike our own. Kitty writes ‘In my work as a model and body acceptance advocate, I try my best to dispel stigmas surrounding certain aspects of our bodies we have been taught to hate – stretch-marks, fat rolls, and especially cellulite. I hope that by displaying my own, I can contribute to normalising these features and hopefully get us to that next step where we start to question why we’re made to feel like these features of ours are ‘flaws’ and that we should be ashamed of them.

The ceremony will begin with a welcome by Mrs Hughes followed by a speech from alumnae, Kitty Underhill, after which the class of 2021 will be called up to collect their certificates on stage before returning to their seats.

We understand that due to academic commitments not all of our alumnae and their families can attend in person, but we hope that you can enjoy the celebration from afar.

Please note that the reception will not be recorded. However, we hope that those attending the ceremony virtually will continue to celebrate wherever you are!
