2023 Pierce Homecoming Reunion: a celebration of the past, present and future!

On Saturday, September 30, the 2023 Pierce Homecoming Reunion was held for all Pierce classes that graduated in a year ending in 2 or 3:
1952 and ’53, 1962 and ’63, 1962 and ’63, 1972 and ’73, 1982 and ’83, 1992 and ’93, 2002 and ’03, 2012 and ’13, 2022 and ’23.

The more than 600 attendees had the chance to reconnect with former classmates and teachers, reflect on their beloved school, and share in the celebration by taking part in a variety of events. They visited the classrooms and workshops, listened to group presentations, viewed art exhibits, enjoyed music and dance, engaged in Networking activities, and took photos.

Pierce teachers, students and pupils were actively involved in the organization of the event:

  • Mr. Panagiotis Sfyris and Mr. Stelios Katsoulis, together with the students, presented the work and distinctions of the Entrepreneurship Club.
  • Mr. Theodosis Drakopoulos, Mr. Stephanos Bousios and Mr. Christos Kourtesakis guided the graduates through the Science Laboratories.
  • Students from the Greek and English magazine Sunny Days interviewed alumni who inspired them, in collaboration with the publication teacher advisors, Ms. Chrissa Babouris-Smith, Ms. Vasiliki Giannopoulou, Ms. Maria Ladas and Mr. Ioannis Kosmas!
  • In addition, Ms. Lucy Hudson-Christidis, along with her students, prepared and offered the graduates souvenirs created in Pierce’s MakerSpace.
  • The event was accompanied by the Traditional Dance Group, which, under the direction of Ms. Katerina Tsioufis, got the audience dancing along with them.
  • Finally, the Pierce Ambassadors gave the alumni a tour of the school’s premises.

The beginning was made in September 2019 when a new tradition was launched to celebrate the Graduation Anniversary. Each year, the Homecoming Reunion is a unique opportunity to reconnect and strengthen lifelong bonds between alumni and the School, a celebration of the past, present and future. Our alumni are the best ambassadors and the most brilliant examples of the impact of the education Pierce offers and its contribution to shaping their lives.

Many thanks to the supporters and sponsors of the event, as well as the volunteers, faculty and staff who contributed to the success of the 2023 Pierce Homecoming Reunion. Please see the links below for the event schedule and photo album.

Proceeds from the event will support the Pierce Scholarship Fund.
