Heads up !!
Little Rock has posted updated information on the schedule for the Little Rock Silver Jubilee Alumni reunion scheduled to be held on campus on Saturday and Sunday, Dec 16-17th. We hope this will help those who are attending plan their schedule. Also if this can help those who currently think they cannot attend, review the circumstances and perhaps change their decision.
Just a reminder - alumni members, irrespective of your plan to attend the reunion, please register here.
Our website sees new registrations of our alumni every day. A vast number of old students are planning to come for the Alumni Reunion on December 16 and 17. I find that there are many coming even from distant cities in India, and some even from foreign countries to be here on this historic occasion. We are really overwhelmed by the response. We are indeed proud of our old students, much the same way as you are proud of your Little Rock.
Let me give you an outline of the programme.
Saturday, December 16 : 3 pm to 6 pm Get-together and tea party
Sunday, December 17 : 2 pm to 2.45 pm Fellowship
3 pm to 6 pm Formal Function
Mr. Justice Santhosh Hegde N, former Judge of the Supreme Court of India, and presently Lokayukta of Karnataka will be the guest of honour on Sunday. We are fortunate to have such a great personality to be with us. Justice Hegde wants to interact with the present and past students of Little Rock. He will not merely make a speech, but will have a question answer session with the audience.
After the formal function, we will have around 1 hour’s entertainment programme. The present students are preparing to entertain you with a few items for about half an hour. Old students who are talented and would like to present some items are welcome to do so. They must however inform us about it within a week of this letter. The item must be of high standard, suitable for a school audience (remember we are still a school) and very brief – lasting 5-7 minutes only. No elaborate skit, drama or orchestra is possible.
We will give this opportunity to earlier batches – up to 2001-02. Those who have definite plans must inform us by email clearly what they are planning to do, and get the approval of the entertainment committee. Since we have to plan every minute detail, as is our practice always, we cannot permit impromptu presentations. Please do understand this. The programme must end by 6 pm on both days.
We look forward to meeting the largest congregation of our old students right from the early days of the school. Alumni meet is not necessarily only for those who completed Class X or XII from Little Rock. Anyone who has studied here will form part of the Little Rock Alumni. It would thus be a great occasion.
Please register in the website if you haven’t done so as yet. We will try to send invitations to those whose addresses we get. We will also announce in local newspapers. Please consider this letter as an invitation and come even if another invitation doesn’t reach you. I hope you will do it.
