Homecoming

Woodstock Homecoming 

 

We reintroduced 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. In 2019 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!

 

Last year, in hopes of continuing the tradition of hosting Homecoming and trying not to let COVID-19 dampen the homecoming spirit, we curated a series of digital events and activities for the Homecoming week. Take a look at some of the videos that we had put together.
