Today I went to our inaugural alumni event – D.A.V. Sangam not only as alumni, but also as a volunteer. I was given the task of overseeing the registration process – both for the existing batch that was passing out (for whom this event was mainly organized) and for alumni from previous batches from all our group schools in Chennai.
I had a lot of fun going back to my school where I have a lot of fond memories. I feel childhood/school days are the best days of our life.
Actor Siddharth (Hero of Boys, Bomma Railu, etc.) was invited as the Chief Guest as he is an alumnus too. Then there were some short speeches and cultural programs by the students of different schools of the group.
While the students from the existing batch came in good numbers, we find it difficult to get alumni from previous batches in. I understand many of them may not be in Chennai or maybe too busy, but for a school that’s been there from the ’70s, I expected more alumni to attend.
Here is the video invite I made for this event,
Have you ever gone back to your school or wished to go back?
