The alumni of one of the oldest institutions of the district, Malda Zilla School, established in 1858, celebrated their fourth reunion with around 500 former students of the school and former teachers gathering for the event.

The former students of this prestigious institution of Malda from different parts of the world got together and celebrated the occasion with pomp and grandeur.

While the former students walked down memory lane, they reveled in a cultural programme organised in the evening on the school premises.

According to the secretary of the Malda Zilla School Alumni Association and former teacher of the school, Himangshu Sekhar Das, popularly called ‘Ratan Sir,’ the reunion started in 2008 when the school celebrated its 150 years of establishment.

“In 2009, the Association was formed under the leadership of our teacher Debabrata Chakraborty and the first reunion was held that year. Later in 2017 and 2018, we had two more reunions, while this is the fourth one,” said Mr Das.

The former students now included doctors, engineers, advocates, teachers, self-employed persons, charter accountants and others, it is learnt.

Chinmoy Ghosh, an alumni, said, “We are proud of our school and would take every measure to serve the institution with others interested in the same. Today is a memorable day, meeting my old friends and teachers, and this brought about a flurry of memories in my mind.”

Mr Dassaid, “Apart from organising such a get-together, we are having a blood donation camp every year and go for tree plantation occasionally to serve our society and environment.”
