The High School Reunion 2016 festival is being planned and packaged to be the best and last event of the year for young people by young people, who form majority of the guests at the festival. Apart from it being a unique meeting point for former high school mates from different locations across and beyond Nigeria to reunite and socialize, it promises to be a fun filled experience where memories are brought back, stories are shared and bonds are strengthened.
The reunion which will be hosted on the 17th of December 2016, at foremost beach resort, Lekki Leisure Lake, Lekki, Lagos, will feature a host of different popular and not so popular high schools from within and outside the city of Lagos state. Organizers of the event, comprising of some representatives from the different high schools, gave reasons for choosing the week before Christmas for the reunion, as against the usual 26th of December, Boxing Day date, to provide numerous guests with end of the year vacation plans and other Christmas engagements amongst others, the chance to participate in “The Festival” which happens to be the theme of this year’s reunion.
Connecting former high school mates on one platform, promoting love, unity and friendship, and ending the year on a positive high note with family and friends are the core objectives of the reunion. As such, series of fun activities have been carefully planned and created, with the typical high school guest in mind, who is filled with energy and open to upscale fun.
The highlight of the festival is “The Reunion Cup” a five aside beach soccer tournament involving selected high schools. The highest scoring team will be crowned the winners and will be rewarded with a trophy and a cash prize of fifty thousand naira (N50, 000). Some of the fixtures include FGC IJANIKIN vs N.AIRFORCE, FGC ODOGBOLU vs ST. GREG’S, KINGS COLLEGE vs INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL LAGOS, N.NAVY vs MERFIX. Each match will be officiated by celebrities who are also old students of these high schools. Other sporting event is Volleyball for girls with QUEENS COLLEGE, FGC SAGAMU, OUR LADY OF APOSTLES and METHODIST GIRLS headlining the games.
For other guests who are into extreme sports, taking a swift ride down the Zip Line in Lekki Leisure Lake will surely get your adrenaline pumping. Or if you can handle the wheels like a professional, the Quad bikes and Beach Buggy will serve that purpose. Apart from performances, networking and the inter school reunion competitions forming core of the festivities, one thing should be in the mind of every guest, which is to have fun and represent their high school with pride.
