20th Anniversary Gala Dinner

To celebrate Woodgrove Secondary School’s 20th anniversary, we gathered together with alumni, ex-staff and partners for a Gala Dinner on 4 September 2019. It was an evening full of reminiscences, filled with joy and laughter as we enjoyed performances by the Drama Club, Chinese Orchestra, Dance Society as well as alumni.

We welcomed back more than 30 staff as well as almost 160 alumni that night. It was truly a night for rich reunions as guests took the opportunity to catch up with one another while enjoying a delectable feast. There were plenty of photo opportunities at our WGS photo booth as well!

More than 250 students came together to make this night a memorable one. Their dedication and effort was truly commendable. Guests were mesmerised by the wonderful performances, designed to bring us back in time to reminisce our school’s history and cherished moments.

As part of the 20th anniversary celebrations, an installation mural has been set up. This installation mural is made up of wooden hearts from staff, students and partners. Every heart is inscribed with their name and the year in which they joined the Woodgrove family. This mural reflects the growth of Woodgrove over the years and is meant to be a ‘growing’ installation as, alumni who return to Woodgrove to visit are always welcome to write on a heart for the mural. When new batches of students join the Woodgrove family, they will also be given a heart to place on the mural. We certainly hope to see the installation mural grow over the years.

We hope that guests enjoyed the opportunity to recall all the wonderful times they enjoyed in Woodgrove and to catch up with teachers and friends. Once a Woodgrover, Always a Woodgrover!
