Day out for Alumni of local schools

Four neighbourhood schools had their Alumni meets on January 26 at their respective school campuses.

Lady Sivaswami Ayyar Girls School had specially invited three alumni to join in this get together. In the early years of the school, the classes followed a co-ed system.

Students from 1954 batch were present in large numbers. Leela Narayandran, secretary of the school was also a past pupil. She passed out in 1954.

14 students of 1961 batch decided to wear a similar coloured sari for the occasion, they all came dressed in green.

Some of the retired teachers were also present at this event.

At the alumni get together of Sir Sivaswami Kalalaya HS School, Mandaveli there were a few special moments.

T. K. Meenakshi from 2002 batch was awarded the “Behind the Scene” certificate for organising the Decafest Celebration last year.

Over snacks, alumni students shared their memories of their school days.

January 26 is always Alumni Day for Old Bedeans.

After an hour of formal meetings the alumni tried their hands at the different games that were organised for them. Lunch was served to all the alumni.

Former T N cricket player A. G. Harjnder Singh of 1968 batch and actor Radha Ravi of 1970 batch were along the personalities who dropped by and went down memory lane.

  1. I too am an old student of Rosary Matric and have nothing but the happiest of memories even after having spent the last 25-plus years in the US. I actually remember Amala (from the previous comment) very well. I believe she was a year or two my senior and was a dynamic debater! Good luck to Rosary for continued success.

  2. Its so good to read about my old school where I studied from LKG till I passed out.Lily Muthiah was a lady who taught me too.However it is sad to note that i have ben forgotten by this famous school for whom I have also contributed by bringing it kudos in the interschool debating and oratorical competitions.
    I am sure that if Mother Teresa Xavier was still there she would have somehow got in touch with me.
