Class of 1977‘Hail our School, Sacred Heart, Hallowed school Happy school thee we love … ‘ the strains of the school song rang out at the Tahiti Café, Beldhi Club Jamshedpur on 18th December 2011 as the batch of 1977-78 met for their reunion. Twenty seven gorgeous ‘girls’, two sisters and five teachers. What a wonderful mixture of nostalgia, laughter and great memories.

Over a sumptuous lunch the students and teachers reminisced of the old days, shed a tear for the three classmates no longer with us, Geet Kohli, Vidya Oak and Snigdha Tiwari. Another interesting pastime was trying to identify the girls from the class pictures of yester years.

Shyamala with Tr. RebelloThe batch of 1976 celebrated its 35th year as "ex Conventees" by meeting up at school. Twenty seven students from all over the world... Moscow, Canada, South Africa, USA, Mumbai, Kerela, Kolkata, Goa, Dhanbad, Ranchi and many other places got together on the 7th of January 2011 and spent three wonderful days together.

The first meeting was at Sonnet, Bistupur on the 7th of January, in the evening, where we had a nostalgic meeting with each other... seeing each other after 35 long years. All of us had our fair share of our ups and downs in life but what was new was sharing these experiences with the girls whom we grew up! It really made the "ups" very high and flattened all the "lows".
