10 Year Anniversary High School Graduation Celebration

This month marks the 10th year since i graduated from high school. While life goes on and many things have happened since then, it's nice to take a look back and mark the occasion. With a couple of friends of mine I organized a small get together for the 10 year anniversary. Around 30 people came and we also invited some of our teachers.

Me in my old classroom, my handwriting on the chalkboard reading: 113th generation of Gymnasium Mostar


The celebration began in our high school. It's the orange building in the shot above. We organized a visit to our old class room, where we caught up with each other and took a look through old grade books. Some of the people I was in contact with, other I hadn't seen in along time.




Selma and I in the shot above. We used to share a desk during 4 years of high school. In the image below it's me and our class teacher.



We moved the celebration to the Old Town of Mostar where we met up in a hotel. We had dinner there and celebrated into the night with music and dinner.






It's fun to look back into the past, especially into your own one and mark important events. We had a great time, and hopefully we will continue to honor this tradition.

  3. Ein Klassentreffen nach so langer Zeit ist immer der Wahnsinn! Ich finde das so spannend zu sehen, was aus den Leuten wird, wie sie sich verändern und "groß" werden. Unglaublich interessant! Und jetzt stell dir mal vor wie ein Klassentreffen in 50 Jahren aussieht! Was man dann alles zu erzählen hat! Wow! GlG Anne

  7. Hi Mersad,
    ja, so ein Klassentreffen ist toll und man ist überrascht, wie sich die Mitschüler in den Jahren verändert haben. Manche ekennt man u. U. gar nicht mehr. So ging es mir mal, aber das Treffen war nach 25 Jahren :o)
    In einem tollen Gebäude war dein Klassenzimmer, so schön hat man es hier nicht gehabt.
    Ich wünsche dir ein schönes Wochenende!

  12. Looks like you all had a great time at your high school reunion. Your class had many beautiful women in it. I also notice your handwriting is wonderful. Mine never was. Hope you can get together for many more reunions in the future. We seem to make life long friends in high school.

  21. What a lovely school and how terrific to see your classmates again. I like going to my reunions, too, but our crowd gets smaller and smaller every day.
