sweets and gifts, which they enjoyed, and the smiles on their faces

dance which we thoroughly enjoyed.
6th April 2013, we ended our Silver Jubilee Year with a
grand lunch at Bengal Club. It was a delightful gathering of so many
past pupils, who were happy to meet their friends and exchange
pleasantries. Since the theme of the celebration was “Silver
Bells”, we gave a bell with the Loreto monogram engraved on it,
to all those present, as mementos of our Silver Anniversary.

towards salaries for the teachers of the Roof School. We also
continue with great pleasure to contribute to special elocution classes
for the students of the middle school at Loreto House. The Alumnae
also sponsors needy girl students with scholarships, so that they can
complete their education.
