Speech By Mrs. Gita Diwan on Alumni Meet on November 2nd 2013
Good evening my dear students guests teachers .I feel so happy standing here today when I see all our alumni – members of the Happy Days family.We decided to have a reunion as part of our 25 th year celebration and I extend a warm welcome to you all.The past 25 years have been an exciting journey and all of you siiting here have been a part of that journey.The school has come a long way and all of you as ex students have been a part of it..No school is complete without its alumni and you are responsible for giving it a good name and are its real foundation.I feel proud when I hear of your achievements and successes and am sure that the school had a large part to play in moulding your
As you wandered around the school campus you will have noticed the changes in our nfrastructure. Memories must have over whelmed you as you recalled all the fun times you have spent here. Our year book which is on sale gives a detailed account of our activities and has messages from some of you.
Let us not only look back but at the years ahead and plan for the future.
We have decided to start a new initiative in our 25 th year and would like all of you to join the old students association. The association will consist of all of you as members.You are already members of the school group on face book but this will further cement the community .Please register yourselves at the counter and we request some of the active members in shivpuri to take up the initiative and organise dinners various prog and updates through email. Old studrnts associations can join hands with the school to do a lot of good work .
We would also like the students association to reccomend an ex student who has achieved success in his or her field or career.Thus it is very important that you write to the students association if you think you are worthy of it. This will be called the young achievers award
The other iniiative we have taken up in our 25 th year Is to ask all of you to consider sponsoring a student who is less priviledged .Providing education is the best form of charity and in the words of Rabindra nath Tagore from Gitanjali tagore It is in giving that you receive. You will be happy to know that we are giving you a t shirt as a memento.Please pick it up fron the counter after dinner.
We hope you enjoy the prog and dinner this evening
Thank you and god bless
