Merry Christmas & Happy New Year 2015 to you all & your families. Sorry for being so late in communicating this time. There are reasons that I will explain later on but first things first !
The11th AGM & REUNION of our beloved Baranagar Narendranath Vidyamandir Alumni Association will be held on 18th of January, 2015, Sunday, 11a.m. onwards at our school premises. We hope to have a small cultural programme in the afternoon to cap the event.
The E.C. has made some important decisions this year. It has authorised Mr. Surojit Banerjee & Mr. Nabendu Dey to collect the Annual Membership Fees (Rs.200/-) from all of you. They will contact you or you may contact them at the mobile no. provided below. If you intend to induct new members to our association, please give their names & phone no. to either Mr. Surojit or Mr. Nabendu & they will follow this up. If you reside outside Kolkata & our people are unable to personally collect the money, you can pay by Net Banking or Fund Transfer. Our Bank A/C details are given below as well.
This year the Contribution towards the Reunion (Rs.300/-) will be collected on the day of event itself (18th. Jan) at the reception desk where the necessary entry passes will be issued.
Now to other things. This year was the DIAMOND JUBILEE year of our school & various programmes were organised by the school throughout the year. This will climax to a grand finale of entertainment programmes on 30th.Jan to 1st. Feb. It will be great fun joining in. BNNV Alumni Assoc. will have a stall there during those 3 days. Please visit the stall to encourage us. We also intend to organise some educational seminars on one of those three days. Details are being worked out.
One of the important things that was achieved in 2014-15 was the renewal & regularisation of the registration of our assoc. after 2 years of perseverance. We have also created a Fixed deposit with SBI, Cossipore of Rs. 100000.00 ( Rupees One Lac) only against Life
Membership contribution from twenty members of our association. Now we have a PAN NO. which will help us collect funds for our works. Next, we intend to apply for income tax exemption for our donors which will further our cause.
During School Sports, as in previous years, we donated accessories and also the 3 trophies for the champion athletes of the primary & secondary sections. The trophies were in the name of our teachers–Late Ajit Mondal, Late Rama Bhattacharya & Late Ila Moitra. We donated 2 almirahs & a number of books to the school in Feb’14.
During the grand “Padayatra” to commemorate the Diamond Jubilee Year of the school, we provided caps & sunguards & drinking water to all participants. Alumni members also participated in the “Padayatra” in quite significant number (almost 40-50 of us were present). We also had a “Tableau” of our Alumni Association in the walk which was highly appreciated by one & all.
AND NOW, WHAT WE COULD NOT DO
One of the major reasons for the lack of communication amongst us was the fact that we could not execute two of the major programmes that we intended to finish in 2014. The failure was partly due to the reconstruction programme undertaken by the school but partly due to our inability to work as a cohesive & disciplined unit as well.
The first was our failure to hold “Health Camps” for students & teachers which we promised to the school. This was mainly due to difficulty in getting dates from school but pre-occupation of our members with other things also contributed. We will definitely correct this aberration this year. The second was the failure of the “KEEP SCHOOL CLEAN” campaign – an ambitious project consisting of “Cleanliness” campaigns, providing “Garbage Bins” at strategic places in the school premises, providing “Safe Drinking Water” & “Clean Toilets” to the students. Cause of failure? The same as that of the first one! Again, we promise to complete this work within the coming summer vacation of school.
As we all know, now we have a mailing address & a notice board in the school premises but, as yet, we have failed to procure an office room for our association. We are seized of the problem & continually discussing with school management to solve this. We have promises to keep this year. Your active participation and encouragement are our only assets with which to try & fulfill the commitments. Let us do it together & take our alumni further.
