Worldwide Woodstock Day – 30 October 2022

Every year Worldwide Woodstock Day (WWD) is celebrated to mark a global celebration for Woodstock’s school. Alumni around the world gather to remember and celebrate their time in the Himalayas.

Are you ready to hold this year’s Worldwide Woodstock Day in your town!

Organise a Gathering for WWD

 

Whether its physical or virtual, we encourage you to organise a gathering in your area. You can organize a small or large gathering (with our help) or you can simply be creative and think of some small symbolic way you can remember Woodstock school during the week leading up to Worldwide Woodstock Day

 

If you cannot organise or be a part of a gathering, why not call a classmate or send a postcard from your hometown to the alumni office!

 

Write or phone a former teacher who had an impact on your life!

 

Post memories of Woodstock school on its Facebook page or watch a Bollywood movie!

 

Or better still, join us for a virtual chat on Worldwide Woodstock Day!

Celebrations around the world in 2022

 

 

To find out more about any of these events, send us an email on alumni@woodstock.ac.in

For Alumni in USA, please do reach out to your regional reps to find out about any planned gatherings for WWD. Click here for Regional Reps (US)

The most important part is to let the alumni office know by emailing alumni@woodstock.ac.in what you plan to do and where you plan to do it so that we can help by putting you in touch with alumni in your area or sending out your event information along with anything else you may require.

WWD TOOLKIT

Here is a Toolkit for you to organize and help you celebrate WWD!

How to start the planning?

  • Plan a gathering this October by getting in touch with –  
  • Your FWS Regional Reps (USA) 
  • WOSA Asia Committee Members 
  • Class Reps  
  • Anyone in your region 
  • Get in touch with the alumni office to find out who is around you!  

If you cannot organise or be a part of a gathering, why not call a classmate or send a postcard from your hometown to the alumni office – and send us a selfie from the post office as you send off your note! 

 

What activities can I do at my gathering?

  • Meet up for an Indian or other meal
  • Celebrate each other! Ask attendees to offer lectures on their topics of expertise, share about their businesses or places of work, their service activities, and more!
  • Watch a Bollywood film together; ones that have been shot in the vicinity of campus are particularly fun!
  • Create and play your own Woodstock School Playlist (or use ours!)
  • Dress up in your house colors, Indian attire, or Woodstock branded items
  • Get a Mehendi Wala for your gathering
  • Share your favorite Woodstock memories with one another
  • Write or phone a former teacher who had an impact on your life! – or invite them via zoom?

How do I promote:  

  • Reach out to Alumni Office to spread the news of your get together
  • Tag us in your pictures on social media
  • Share your pictures, testimonials and stories from your event with us
  • Share a postcard (or digital postcard) with your teacher, friends or us here on the hillside

 

How do I decorate the venue?  

  • Set up the venue with Woodstock memorabilia
  • Use brown and gold colours for tablecloths, napkins, etc.
  • Have Woodstock videos or photo slideshows on display (we can include: personal photos, photos from WS social media, videos from WS YouTube, slideshows from attendees photos in Whispering Pine online, etc.)
  • Print out items in our event packet (let’s resize the logo for table top decorations, name tags, etc.)
