The present batch of class XII put up a prayer dance, and the lamp was lit by the distinguished guests.

Sister Jacinta, addressed the students, both young and old and said it was a ‘nostalgic gathering’ as the girls were back in their ‘Alma Mater’, recalling old memories. She suggested that we should work together to do something concrete for the betterment of society.

Sister Shanti , Vice Chairman of the Alumni Association, mentioned that the Association can arrange various meetings, gatherings, concerts, charity shows, fairs, social awareness programmes etc. She emphasized about Online registration and other activities, once the Alumni body is registered and further added that an AGM be conducted yearly.
