Contribution to academic cause

Alumni Association always strives to support Vidyapith in all possible means and financial help is, of course, one of them.

In January, 2004 Association handed over a sum of Rs. 40,000/- to Vidyapith. It was marked to be used in academic purpose.

The event was backed by the contribution of an ex-student who does not want his name to be disclosed. Alumni Association expresses its heartfelt gratitude to the member behind the scenes for his support.

Reunion, 2003 held successfully

The 11th Reunion was held at Vidyapith on 13th & 14th of December, 2003. As always, it was a mega event with great fun. In the Cricket match, ex-students lost miserably to the present students.

Apart from such regular events, there was a special seminar for the family members of ex-students in context of the 150th birth anniversary of Sri Sri Ma. The general body meeting was also held to submit the accounts, form the next committee and to determine the next course of action.

Get-togethers

The main focus of any alumni association is bringing the old friends together. And ours is no exception. Alumni Association organizes the mega event, Reunion of ex-students every altenate year and so far 10 such occassions took place successfully. It's of course an event of joy for everyone. You go back to the school, discover the long-lost friends, meet the people you grew up under, talk to the present students, have fun with them and share the experience as well as the nostalgia with your family.

Cultural programme

In 1993, Purulia, commonly a known as a place of draught, strangely witnessed a massive flood. We lost two of our Vidyapith brothers in the unfortunate incident.
Vidyapith immediately started the relief work among the affected people. Alumni Association organized a cultural programme at Mahajati Sadan in February 1993 to raise fund to support the effort. Suman Chattopadhyay and Chandrabindu group were the attractions of the evening. Finally he entire amount was handed over to Vidyapith.

Higher Secondary

The General body of Alumni Association adopted a resolution in 1999 for setting up a Higher Secondary stream at Vidyapith considering the tremendous difficulties faced by the students of Vidyapith after passing out the Madhyamik examination from there. With the copy of that resolution the Association moved to several trustees and distinguished monks at the Headquerters at Belur Math and tried to convince them with the reason. Finally, the effort succeeded and the first Higher Secondary batch passed out from Vidyapith in 2002 with remarkable academic performance.

Computer & Generator for Vidyapith

Way back in 1996, Alumni Assocation gifted a computer to Vidyapith for maintenance of the database of the students which happened to be the first computer there. Consequently, Vidyapith authorities introduced computer education mandatorily amongst the students right from class IV. But unfortunately the classes got severely disrupted due to unpredictable power cuts.

Seba - The Medical Unit

In 1994-95, Alumni Association formed a medical unit named 'seba' at Purulia town for free treatment of the people of Purulia. It was run by the doctors from our members and ex-students from Purulia. It ran quite successfully for couple of years.
Alumni Association performed some special fund-raising activities for this project including a magic show at Purulia town in 1995.

We lost Avik Tarafdar

We lost one of our brothers.
Avik Tarafdar of 1997 madhyamik batch passed away in a Metro Rail accident this summer. He was an Engineering student at B.E. College, Howrah.
May his soul rest in peace.
