Homecoming 2020

Woodstock Homecoming (Online)

27 – 31 October 2020

 

Last year, we decided to re-introduce Woodstock School’s Homecoming for all alumni wishing to return to visit or celebrate their milestone reunions. Since we celebrate Worldwide Woodstock Day in October it seemed like the right time to also have a homecoming. Last year the event was kicked off with a Himalayan Trek that was organized by Hanifl Centre which then culminated into a weekend of activities, leading up to the final event: the Woodstock Mela!

 

We hope to continue the tradition of having Homecoming this year as well and will not let COVID-19 dampen the homecoming spirit. We have curated a series of digital events and activities for the Homecoming week, and would love to see us all get together to celebrate, like we would have at the campus this year.
