Alexandra School Holds Fun Alumni Dinner

 Over 300 ex-students, with ages ranging from their teens to the eighties, attended the fun-yet-nostalgic alumni school dinner, hosted by The Alexandra Girls’ English Institution, on 29th April, 2023. 87-year-old Putli Pavri, the oldest ex-student on the day, shared the excitement with as much enthusiasm as the rest of the ex-students, even as they missed their centenarian – Rati Hakim who was unable to make it to the event due to her age and mobility issues.

Speaking on behalf of the Board of Directors, Hoshaang Gotla and Ruby Pavri set the stage for the 160th year celebrations for the school (founded on 1st September, 1863, by Manockjee Cursetjee)  and the 100th year celebrations for Girl Guides in the school… in keeping with the tradition mentioned during the 150-year celebrations (2013), proclaiming: ‘The legacy goes on!’

 The organising team performed a stellar job to ensure the eve was one to remember, with a fun quiz, an Odissi dance performance and a standup comedy routine as part of the entertainment. Partaking of the nostalgia a number of ex-students were seen reliving memories, wandering around their school, sitting in classrooms and even ringing the school bell! Dinner and the return gift of cup-cakes had everyone leaving with sweet memories.
