On 10 August 2018, Joy Buhr (Gornall, No. 4,1943-46) celebrated her 90th birthday on Prince Edward Island, Canada, with 14 members of her family. Amongst them were her cousins from the UK, and fellow Roedean alumnae, Stephanie Chapman (Watson, No. 4, 1952-57) and her sister Miranda Hall (Watson, No. 4, 1956-60). They are all granddaughters of the School, their mothers, Daynel Gornall (Wheatley, No. 4, 1919-24) and Grace Watson (Wheatley, No. 4, 1923-27) also attended Roedean. All three of them very much enjoyed their years at the School under the inspirational care of their House Mistress Mary Midddleton, receiving annual letters from her for the rest of her life.

Joy has lived in Canada since 1951 and was delighted to receive from Roedean coloured illustrations of the School and both a key ring and warm letter of congratulations on her 90th birthday. These tributes were included in a magnificent album created to celebrate her birthday.
