Vijayawada: Decades after completing their schooling, more than 150 Kendriya Vidyalaya alumni from Vijayawada came together to visit their alma mater at Siddhartha Auditorium here on Monday.
They have celebrated Silver Jubilee and felicitated 50 teachers on this occasion. But their trip down memory lane — during which they visited old classrooms, playgrounds and childhood haunts — was more than just an exercise in nostalgia.
As adults and contributing members of society, they wanted to raise funds to improve the infrastructure at their schools and lend a helping hand to current students.
Alumni Associations of Kendriya Vidyalaya, Secretary Anil Kumar said that they have designed a plan which consists of career guidance and awareness programmes to the students.
The global alumni meet was a great occasion to cherish old friendships. Many of the former students, who lost touch with their counterparts, recalled the memories of their school days and the fun they had on the school campus.
It was a great occasion for the old students to meet some of the retired teachers and express their gratitude to them.
Many of the alumni had made a mark for themselves in various fields and settled in different States in the country and abroad.
