As the new year 2016 dawns, it brings with it a lot of Hope, Optimism and Expectations. A "Hope" that more alumni will come in contact with each other, "Optimism" that those who have got in touch, will stay in touch and the "Expectation" that we will meet more often and in larger numbers. During the year 2015 also there were a lot of interactions between alumni, mostly at batch levels. It was heartening to see pix of some of these interactions on different social media. We hope that these interactions will continue this year also. Our efforts to organise a Get Together last year could not materialise despite our best efforts and intentions. We understand that there must have been pressing reasons for the Alumni to not commit their availability for the event. We hope that this year we will be able to have a central Get Together because we firmly believe that such interactions between the alumni and the teachers are extremely important to keep the flag of Alumni spirit flying high. We look forward to suggestions from all our friends about the time, venue and the format of Get Together.

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.
