OP Helen Kenyon Celebrates Her 50th Birthday At Princethorpe College

Princethorpe College was delighted to host OP Helen Kenyon's birthday celebrations.

Old Princethorpian, Helen Kenyon who attended the College Sixth Form in the late 1980s returned to Princethorpe recently to celebrate her 50th birthday. She was joined by her friends and had a magical day made all the more special by the company of four of her school friends, who also were at Princethorpe for their Sixth Form years.

Pictured together are the five OPs: Ann-Marie Mangan, Helen Kenyon, Maria Brennan, Sonia White and Claire Davis at the front (maiden names).

Helen explains, “Princethorpe holds an incredibly special place in all of our hearts – we have happy memories of being at a school that was like a family. We made lifelong friendships and returning to Princethorpe made my 50th lunch even more special.”

Helen told us that Ann-Marie is still happily with OP, Chris Cusiter having been childhood sweethearts at school, they got back together after a reunion and they have two amazing daughters. Maria married OP Brendan McDermott in the College Chapel (Helen was chief bridesmaid) and they have three wonderful children and that OP Phil McLean picked the friends up from the lunch on the Saturday too, another great friend from Helen’s time at the school.

For the other guests, all Helen’s closest friends, it was a wonderful opportunity to share lunch together in such beautiful surroundings.

Helen continues, “Andrew (Catering Manager) and his team did a fabulous job for us, the food and service were exceptional. All in all, it was a wonderful day to add to our fabulous memories of Princethorpe College.”
