SOMERVILLE ALUMNI RE-UNION 2019
The school hosted the Second Reunion of the Alumni of Somerville School, Vasundhara Enclave, on 16th November 2019. It was a happy and nostalgic homecoming for more than 300 former students who had been students of the school between 1975 and 2019.
The programme began with a school morning assembly, followed by songs, dances and reminiscences shared by several former students and some of the teachers of the school. The alumni shared how the values of compassion and discipline they learnt in school had stayed with them as they made their place in the world as scientists, bureaucrats, filmmakers, writers and leaders of people.
The Principal, Ms. Esther Mani, shared interesting anecdotes about some of the alumni when they were students of the school. She urged the alumni to get more involved with their alma mater by sharing their talents and abilities, such as by organising talks, workshops and skill-based training for the current students of the school.
The programme ended with the singing of the school song and former Head Boys and Head Girls from among the alumni cutting a cake.
