The teachers who were emotional expressed the desire to meet their former students and stated that all their students were like their children whatever be their age and position . The former students presented songs and dances which were taught by the teachers during the school days. They stated that it was the dedication , love and care given by the teachers that they were able to succeed in life and face any challenges. The teachers also presented songs and poems on the occasions.
The organisers said it was a historic moment as students who passed out mostly during the 70s, 80s and 90s had the opportunity to meet once again in the premises of the school and pay their respects to their teachers. As hundreds of students pass out every year it was hard to organise such an event as it was difficult to contact the students the organisers said. The association appealed to all former students to join the association so that such event of honouring former teachers could be organised on regular basis. All present observed two minutes silence to pay respect to all those who departed.
