Prof. D.N. Bose informed the House regarding the OPA (E) Annual Reunion he attended this year. Mr. P.S. Bose brought to the notice of the members that SPS has started 'Day School'. The Hon. Secretary said he will talk to the Administrator and find out about the same. Mr. P.S. Bose suggested that since Email IDs of the boys who passed out from school in 2012 are not available in the list provided to us by the school, we should send a letter to the postal addresses available and ask them to furnish the details required. Mr. S.S. Bose offered to help the Secretary on this issue. Mr. P.S. Bose also suggested that the school authorities should be requested to forward a copy of the ICSE and ISC results along with a copy of the Paulite Newsletter so that the Old Paulites can keep themselves informed regarding the developments and events in school. The Hon. Secretary said he will have a talk with the Administrator regarding the issues discussed at the AGM. Mr. Dilip Chatterjee asked the Hon. Secretary regarding the survival of the OPA in the future as not too many students were going up to school from the plains. The Secretary assured him that there was no reason for concern. We still have good number of Old Paulites based in Kolkata. Besides this we have spread our wings over the country and the continents and have OPA Chapters in North India, Mumbai, Sikkim, North East, Bangkok, Europe and North America which makes us a formidable strength to reckon with.
There being no other Agenda the meeting ended with a vote of thanks to the Chair and to Mr. & Mrs. P.S. Bose for hosting the same.
