Would you go to a school reunion?

School Days (4)      Reunions (1)      Reminiscences (1)     


I organised a fiftieth of our Grade 8 class a couple of years ago. Any attempt to revive the spirit of that momentous occasion has fallen flat. Maybe my school mates are waiting for the 55th. How many of us will remain and be compos mentis by then?

Yes I organised our 10 year reunion and it was a lot of fun. Now we are due for our 30th and yes I will definitely go.
My primary school had a reunion once, and I intended on going, but I forgot the date and missed it. My secondary school held a reunion for past students every five years, and I always planned to go to that. But then the headmaster retired before the five years, and the reunion never came.
I skipped my ten year reunion. Maybe in a few more years I'll be a bit more sentimental about it.

Was keen when the 10 years came five years ago for high school. Otherwise not interested now...
Not really interested as I've stayed in touch with the people I wanted to over the years.
I'm quite reluctant when it comes to these things. Honestly, if you're close friends, you'll keep contact with them. If not, there's no point meeting strangers and compare your life achievements.
Really? Strangers'? Having spent from Grade 1>12 with these persons', I would NEVER call them strangers'. Maybe you only spent a very short time with your school mates?

Nope - kind of moved on. Still friends with some of them, just don't need to see the rest...
I could not imagine anything worse than a group of people who do not know each other getting together because they all happened to, at one time live in the same location and were born in the same year. All trying to out do each other with better jobs, cars and bigger houses

Leave the school reunions for films and adverts
Couldn't have written a better response. My thoughts exactly!

Yes I would, but coming from the UK 40 years ago and I went to an all boys school would mean that no one would bother, and even if they did they would not know where I was, shame but there you go.
I would love to go, although it will involve a lot of travel. My primary school was in Kuwait. My high school and university was in Montreal, Canada. I currently live in Melbourne, Australia.
Have been to many, & have really enjoyed them all.

Funny to see people as they age, some terribly, some marvellously, not at all!
Great to catch up with what's been happening with all, over the years'.

The 'brain-waves' seem to have had somewhat 'boring' lives, & the others' at the 'bottom' of the class, had very interesting lives!

Our 50th is in three years' time; that should be interesting!
Yes. First one was 40 years later and have been continuing every year since although numbers are decreasing all the time as ill health take some and location proves not to be as suitable as other venues had been.
Feeling rather flattered. Just turned 70 and met a woman at a conference yesterday who asked if I attended primary school A and secondary school B. She then gave my maiden name and told me I had not changed. Really looking forward to my children's choir reunion in March! That's me on the left. I definitely look a little different today.
It would depend on which class it was, and which school, primary or high school.
It depends which school, I don't know if I would recognise any of my friends back then.
To cap it off, I am organising a reunion of kids from my childhood streets at the end of April. We used to walk to school together and play in the street after school until our Mums called us in for dinner.
