October 27 was the first day of the 4th Worldwide Oak Grove School Reunion, 2017.

Old Oakgrovians from all over the world, teachers, students and staff – the whole OG fraternity got together at Oak Grove to create some heart-warming memories over the next three days.

This album is the first of a three-part series, documenting a pictorial recollection of the official events of the first day of ReU2017, from the formal inauguration of the reunion in the evening to the sumptuous dinner in Junior School. We hope these pictures will serve as a nostalgic refresher for all who attended the Reunion, and as an insight into the events for those who could not make it to school this time.

Similar albums will shortly follow with details of Day 2 and 3. Thank you for your patience 🙂
