Thank you so much to all our alumni who took the time to complete our Alumni engagement Survey earlier this year. We had 16% of alumni contacted reply, which is fantastic! We have been busy analysing the results here in the Development Office, reviewing your comments and thinking about how best to put these results into actions to provide the best services we can for our Colytonian Community. The infographics show the replies we had and the main themes.Communications
It is great to know that you enjoy reading the 'Old Colytonian' Newsletter, with 54% of you saying that you read it, but there is obviously scope for more people to view it (so we need more of you to sign up to the old Colytonian Society, on the school webpage). We will endeavour to keep up the good work, sharing nostalgia, Alumni news and School that are of interest to you. This will also include social media, with pieces on LinkedIN
and on Twitter
, we will continue to feature school news, developments and alumni visits and events.Events
We have held only a handful of events in the last 2 years, and we seek to continue to deliver quality, special events for our Alumni. The most popular type of event were Milestone reunions, particularly at Colyton, at a weekend so we hope to see you at Mile stone reunions in 2020 here at Colyton. So look out for your special invitation as you approach a 10, 20, 30, 40 or 50+ anniversary.
We will also look for regional reunions, something we will need assistance for locating venues, but we are hopeful that this will offer our alumni a unique chance to reconnect with Colytonians who now live in the same area. Supporting Colyton Grammar School
Thank you to everyone who has offered to support Colyton in some way, from giving a gift, leaving a legacy or volunteering your time. Your offers of support were all very much appreciated. In 2020 we will be sharing with you how you can support the school, we have already had over 165 hours of volunteering this year (2019) which is amazing, thank you all! We do have a database for volunteers and we cannot take everyone up at the same time, we appreciate your offer and we will be back in touch when opportunities arise throughout the year, please do bear with us.
Thank you again to all those who took the time to participate in the 2019 engagement survey. If you have any further feedback we always want to hear from you, please contact us(firstname.lastname@example.org).
