Reunions:

The OGA holds two events annually which are specifically designed to cater for reunion groups as well as general attendees. These are the Annual Luncheon held mid-year (9 June 2018) and the Annual Dinner (4 August 2018). Reunion cohorts are invited to hold their reunions at the Annual Lunch or Dinner.

Reunions range from small informal friendship groups to larger gatherings at significant milestones — usually decades or half decades. These reunions provide the opportunity for all past students and OGA members to reconnect with each other. At each event it is great to see old friends meeting after losing touch over the years and finding out about their lives since leaving IGGS.

A Reunion booklet is available which outlines procedures and advises what assistance is forthcoming from the OGA. As the actual functions are organised by the OGA Committee, it is a very easy way to hold a reunion as many have found to their pleasure. It simplifies much of the work involved for the organisers and has proved very successful and popular in recent years. If you would like a booklet please email: ogaiggs@gmail.com

If you are interested in attending any of the reunions held this year, please make initial contact with your cohort organiser.
