ANNUAL ALUMNI GET TOGETHER 2012
(AS THINGS STAND TODAY ...........)
It has nearly been 4 years since the efforts were set afloat to get the Alumni of 35 Model Chandigarh together. In these few years, due to concerted efforts of each one of us, a lot has happened and today we do have a semblance of a cohesive group, where we are in touch with our friends and class fellows. With the dovetailing of social networking sites like "FACEBOOK" etc which have acted as force multipliers, the movement is well on course to be a lasting one. During our interactions with other Alumni over these few years, a need has been felt to streamline this concept so that it can function on it's own steam with or without the presence of a certain set of individuals. One has always felt (and same thought has been shared on the blog before also), that others have to come forward to take on the mantle of steering the Alumni activities forward, in whichever way is most suitable.
I think, the time is ripe now to take on this issue more seriously. There is a requirement to streamline the activities coordination. Due to pre-occupations of the "Two Lone Rangers" who were hitherto-fore organising the Annual Get-Togethers, the onerous responsibility of conducting the same this year will have to be taken on by others. There are many spirited, enthusiastic, locally based Alumni (who are not bound by issues like "getting leave!!!") who can take this movement forward from here. Of course, we would continue to be part of it but the activities will no longer be dependent on the "whims & fancies" of two individuals.
The "First Saturday of April" (the tentative date for the Annual Alumni Get-Together) this year is 07 April 2012. There is still sufficient time to plan and conduct the event. The fact that I would not be in town to be part of this event this year, is obvious. Therefore, the ball is thrown up well in time for others to catch and take on the conduct part of the event. To begin with, all like minded people need to sit together to form a core group to devise methodology for conducting the Annual Alumni Get Together 2012. Of course, our experience in conducting the Alumni Meets in past is definitely available, if required.
Friends, we all have worked really hard to take this School level Alumni movement to where it has reached today, by investing a lot of time and effort and nobody would want to see it going waste. Hope we will continue to have such occasions of getting together and rejoicing.

It is with a heavy heart that we inform about the sad demise of one of our Teachers "Mrs GK Walia" on 08 Feb 2012 at about 3.30 PM at her residence in Mohali. She had not been keeping well for some time. We pray to Almighty to give the family, strength to bear this irreparable loss. May her soul rest in peace.

Enthused by the tremendous response to the 35 Model Chandigarh Alumni Get together 2010, we bring to you the second edition of the School Alumni Get Together on 02 April 2011 (Sat). Like last year, the venue will be Lake Club, Chandigarh. It is proposed to solicit following contribution for attending the Get Together :-
Single : Rs 1000/- ; Couple : Rs 1800/- ; Family : Rs 2500/-
The modalities for collection of contributions is proposed to be kept similar, i.e, we would like batches to nominate their nodal representative to collect the money and confirm their participation. We welcome Volunteers to help us in organising this event. Suggestions (practical ones !!!!!) regarding the conduct part are always welcome. We would be happy to see creative alumni join hands to make this event better than the last time.
The outline of the conduct part is yet to be finalised. The same would be done on the basis of TIMELY response received from you all. Like last time, we would like to invite our Teachers as guests and keep at least one event in the school as well on 3rd April 2011. This would, however depend on the enthusiasm shown by you all and participation confirmation. We would also request wide publicity of this event so that maximum alumni can attend this get together.
