Kūpuna Lū’au 2024

Punahou School hosted a heartfelt gathering on Wednesday to honor its older alumni during Alumni Week. The Kūpuna Lū’au, held in the President’s Pavilion, brought together more than 100 alumni from the Classes of 1944, 1949 and 1955 and 1959 with their guests for a day of joyful reunions, delicious Hawaiian food, and inspiring conversations about the School’s present and future. President Mike Latham ’86, who hosted the event, shared insights into the School’s new mission and the new Mary Kawena Pukui Learning Commons, which will open in 2025 in the Academy.

The Kūpuna Lū’au provided a delightful opportunity for the alumni to reconnect with their classmates, reminisce about their cherished memories and create new ones.

After Latham’s remarks, guests enjoyed a Hawaiian meal, prepared by Dole Hall. Attendees were treated to a delectable spread of local favorites, including mouthwatering kalua pork, lomi lomi salmon, poke and haupia and coconut cake.
