The already breezy morning, in an ambience which was beautiful, saw 15 alumni get together to swap stories, share their excitement and enthusiastically catch up with all the latest, happening in their lives and that of the Alma Mater. After greeting each other with hugs and handshakes the formal proceedings began with the Prayer Song ‘Showers of blessing’ sung together by all the Alumni, their families and faculty present.
