Old memories refreshed at OPJS Alumni Meet 2010

Many lost friends finally met, many screamed with joy, few cried, few smiled, but all admitted they miss their school life. Such was the Alumni Meet 2010, held at OPJS Auditorium on 11th June, which witnessed these vivid emotions. The Alumni Meet successfully brought together around 168 Alumni, right from the batch of 2002 to the batch of 2010.

“Today, after years, I again said, ‘Mom, I am going to School’, when I started from my house’, said Romsha Sharma, the first Head Girl of the school. This was followed by many remembrances and nostalgic emotions being exchanged. A photo montage was screened which showcased the good days spent here by all the batches.

The Alumni paid homage to a very dear friend, Abhinav Mehta, whose absence was deeply felt.

The Principal of the School, R.K. Trivedi sir, gave many valuable suggestions to what can be done in the meet. It was also decided that the future meets will be conducted on 11th June itself every year. The formats, of course, need to be discussed further.

Bebortha sir recalled the early days of the school, which used to be conducted in three rooms of the factory quarters and what it has become now, a sprawling campus with more than 3000 students on roll.

Moreover, the interactive session witnessed games, enjoyment and some people speaking their heart out, while chocolates were being distributed to the winners by their favourite teachers, as for others there were punishments as well.

The Alumni Association also plans to sponsor a Child’s education every year, starting this year, which would turn into a scholarship programme in a span of few years. For this purpose, around 52 students donated generously, along with 14 teachers and staff. The total donations went up to Rs. 5,400/-.

After the school, we tend to miss many things, which include the National Anthem, which was sung at the end of the meet, followed by group photo session.

Meanwhile, there was a considerable increase in our database as well, around 100 new entries were made in the database, which has reached to updated records of 302 students as of now.

The programme was conceived and organised by the OPJS-AA, with its preliminary body members being in the forefront. Along with them, the Prefectorial body of the present class XII batch were involved in volunteering, who did a marvellous job in handling registrations and arrangements at the venue.

It was a beautiful evening, where students revisited their memories of the time they spent in their second home. All the alumni received a souvenir bearing the signature of the principal wishing them a good time at their second home. All the teachers also received bookmarks, as a gift by the Association.
