For many people in and around Langport the words 'St Gildas' evoke memories of the school founded in 1903 by the Sisters of Christian Instruction. It was an institution that operated from the top of the Hill in Langport through much of the 20th Century. It grew by taking over more and more of the original Stuckey family house and the stables. When that space was occupied new structures were built. By the late 70's more than 200 children attended. It then had infant, junior and senior departments and a swimming pool. When the school closed another French order Chemin Neuf opened an ecumenical establishment and welcomed language students and other groups.
Thus the Convent became a well known and loved part of the local community and involved many people as students, parents, teachers, support staff and volunteers.
The local Rotary Club of Langport and Somerton has members associated with the building. They have been surprised that as the convent building was sold and subdivided for residential use many of those locals with memories of their time and involvement with the building in its various incarnations have enjoyed talking about their experiences.
With this in mind the Club has arranged an evening on Thurs 5th December for anybody associated with St Gildas to join them for dinner at the Langport Arms. It should be a great time to meet old friends and hopefully enjoy pictures and stories of times so warmly remembered."Memories of St Gilda's" Reunion
