Former students of the two La Martiniere schools in Calcutta are gearing up to celebrate the 177th Founderís Day on Thursday with fun and revelry.
The 177th Founderís Day Reunion Dinner and Dance, presented by the Association of La Martiniere Alumni (ALMA) in association with The Telegraph at The Park Banquets, is part of a long tradition.

ďIt is a platform for alumni to catch up and celebrate the La Martiniere spirit. There will be music, dancing and good food,Ē said Jayajit Biswas, the vice-president of ALMA and the head of events.
The schoolsí board members, principals and teachers will also attend the event.
