  • Bidding goodbye to a lovely second day at ReU2017

October 28 was the second day of the 4th Worldwide Oak Grove School Reunion, 2017.

To keep things simple, let us just call it The Day of The Dancersย 

The day started with Old Oakgrovians descending upon the valley to celebrate Fancy Fair with their classmates, seniors, juniors and members of staff. At the valley, it was a simple routine – eat, dance, rest, repeatย 

After a full day of rejoicing in school, the visitors retreated to Mussoorie to partake in a gala dinner organised at Hotel Brentwood later that evening. Predictably, the dancing continued there!

This album is the second of a three-part series, documenting a pictorial recollection of the official events of the second day of ReU2017. During the course of the day, numerous detours were taken by the visiting students to various parts of the campus. However, this album doesnโ€™t cover those visits in any detail.

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.

A similar album will shortly follow with details of Day 3. Thank you for your patienceย
