Former Deniliquin High School students came from as far as Canada to re-live their school days and the 1980s on Saturday.
Students from the Class of 1989 were joined by teachers and their families for the 25-year reunion.
Vicki Petley made the trip from Toronto, Canada to join with about 90 others to catch up on old times and share new memories.
The reunion kicked off with an impromptu ‘pub crawl’ on Friday night.
The next morning they braved the chilly temperatures for a tour of the school grounds and ag plot, conducted by teacher Peter Rae.
Celebrations rounded off with a cocktail party at the Golf Club on Saturday night, which featured memorabilia from school days and the 1980s era – school uniforms, class photos, walkmans and polaroid cameras among them.
Organiser Kim Thomas said the event took about eight months of planning with the help of family and fellow classmates.
The 1989 class began DHS with 229 students making up nine Year 7 classes and graduated with 81 students in Year 12.
