    Mine is next year and I won't be going. I really only have one friend I've stayed in contact with and she's my bestie so I don't feel the need to go and be nice to people who weren't that nice in high school!

    Yes it was great, only a small group of us but my final year was very small so it was to be expected. We had a great time.

    I don't understand why people don't want to go to their reunion - school is such a significant part of kids lives! It was great to mingle with school friends as mature adults and laugh about how silly we were at school.

    I still keep in contact with many if my old school friends and they are without a doubt some of my favourite people in the world, even though some of us were so different at school (cool kids versus nerds)

    I went to mine which was almost 2 years ago now. I didn't really want to go, but hubby did (we went to the same high school and were in the same grade but didn't meet until school finished) so I tagged along.
    I was 7.5 months pregnant with DS1 so I wasn't drinking which definitely made the night quite boring being one of the few sober people there.
    The night was ok. Saw a few friends that I had lost touch with which was nice but asides from that it felt just like high school (yuk). 'popular people' only spoke to other 'popular people' and ignored/made fun of other people...I had really hoped that they would have grown up in 10 years but I guess when you put them all back in a room together they revert to their high school ways and feel power in numbers.

    PS mine was my 20 year reunion recently. I do think when you're in your 30's you do think differently to your 20's and would like the opportunity to catch up. I know I didn't appreciate my friends in my 20's as much as I do now. I was still in party mode in my 20's.

    I went and loved it! Partners came too. I was 8.5 months pregnant with #1 and had lived abroad for 5 years so was great to come home and catch up....and see those who "had it all going for them" at school turn out to be a waster. Ha!

    I think mine was recently actually but I didn't go. I had no interest. I don't care for anybody from that time and I have zero interest in being around them again. I see a few people around town that I recognise but there is no exchange between us so.

    Mine was a few years ago, and was only a halfhearted organisation. I didn't go, but apparently not many people did. I went to high school in Darwin, and so many of my classmates left the NT when we graduated. I realised after graduation several of my "friends", were actually awful people who didn't like me or have any respect for me at all. So I'm glad I didn't go.

    We didn't have one. Facebook has killed it. I know so much that I doubt there would be much to talk about!

    I didn't go to mine, as dh was away for work and I couldn't get a babysitter. I felt bad though, as 2 of my good friends organized it and I would have liked to go to support them. I still see a good 50 odd people from my year at school regularly enough, and am in contact with more on Facebook. So I don't really feel I missed out on much.

    Mine's next year (I think) but I won't be going. I was a loner all through school and hated high school. Not something I want to relive any time soon.
