A request to form an old students' association for Vivekananda Mission School
Dear Principal Sister,
We, students of VMS, are all proud of our alma mater – the institution our home – Vivekananda Mission School. We have spent the best days of our lives under the careful nurturing of the teachers and the non-teaching staff there. Now, most of us are in different cities, and some in different countries; we miss our school, we miss our friends and we miss our teachers.
The school had prepared the launching ground for us, beyond which we all took flight. Now, we want to come back to the school, again – not as students – but as faithfuls. We wish to create a network for all VMSians which will act as a meeting and greeting ground for the old students, and a fine web of support for all present students.
Beyond VMS, we all went to prime institutions for our education, and are now placed in different industries across India and the world, in varying positions.
By nurturing the present students, we mean we can give them career counselling lectures at school; by sharing our experiences, we can aid them in applying for jobs and securing the same in elite institutions; we can recommend them to premier institutions, as some of us are well-placed in education sectors as well. The possibilities are limitless. Also, there’s the added benefit of the old VMS camaraderie- we can share over a cup of tea followed by lunch, and friends will be meeting after several years – even decades – to revel in childhood joy again.
Also, money collected by the old students' association can be used for helping the school, or a charity, if the school decides such, as we know that the mission of our school was to help others and give back to society.
I hope this petition finds you well, and in the pink of your health.
Ex-Students of VMS.
