LORETO DAY SCHOOL: It was a magical morning for the alumni of Loreto Day School as they met up at The Lalit Great Eastern recently after 25 years. Ex-students from across the country and beyond turned up to reunite with long-lost friends, best buddies, classmates and benchmates. Many of them have been in touch on social media. The afternoon ended with a promise to stay connected, forever. 

LORETO DHARAMTALA: Ex-students and teachers of Loreto Dharamtala bonded over memories at a grand reunion hosted by the alumni on January 28. Sister Anita Braganza, the Provincial of Loreto South Asia and an ex-student herself, was present along with several IBVM sisters of Loreto Dharamtala. Present principal, A. Gomes, also an ex-student, encouraged the alumni to go around their alma mater, the library, corridors and classrooms. A photo booth, where they could get clicked in cutouts of the school uniform, turned out to be a massive hit. Come evening and the former students, nuns and teachers danced to music churned out by Rodney Rodrigues.
