Jul 21: Homecoming 2012
Fantastic atmosphere, great food and good-old company! What more could you ask for? The Dunman High School Youth Alumni (DHSYA) had her second annual Youth Alumni Homecoming on Saturday, 21 July 2012, at the Dunman High School basketball courts. This year, we brought back the ever-popular mega barbeque session for ex-Dunmanians and teachers, young and old (even those with kids!), to come together to relive the good old times.
The evening started with lots of catch-up conversations. As the sun went down, the atmosphere grew even livelier and over 250 alumnus and teachers crowded around the 20 barbeque pits in groups and had their hands at getting the fire started and barbequing the food. The Opening Ceremony kick-started the event with a bang. Lim Yan Chun, the Vice-President of the DHSYA gave the Opening Address, after which, Principal Dr Foo welcomed us all with a simple address. The gong was hit and the band Revolution put up a series of songs to mark the beginning of the Homecoming.
Soon after, the school grounds were filled with resounding chatter and the aroma of barbequed food. What’s more, our lovely emcees took us through a series of games and lucky draw. It was indeed heartwarming to witness Dunmanians, many of whom have already moved on to university or working life, reconnecting with one another!
The night was rounded up near midnight, with many helping out volunteerily with the clearing up of the courts and returning of canteen equipments. All in all, the YA Homecoming 2012 was a resounding success that left Dunmanians with satisfied stomachs, and more importantly, happy hearts. We’re definitely looking forward to seeing more back for fun and laughter at the Homecoming in 2013!
