Times may change, but the love for one's old school and college doesn't. Alma mater is always special. And it was exactly this sentiment that inspired the alumni of Lady Irwin School to give something back to the institution that had laid the foundation of their lives.

On the main agenda of Lady Irwin School Alumni Association (LISAA), formed in 2004, is revamping the old school building. So on September 21, 2005 , LISAA organized a dance recital by Padmashree Ranjana Gauhar, herself an alumnus. The funds from the event will be handed over to the school committee.

Meenakshi Verma, from batch of '66, said: “We raised around Rs. 1 Lakh. We want to repair the building and the gym that was constructed in 1952. the recent event is only a beginning. For example, there will be another dance programme in December.

Dr. Vibha Gupta, president, LISAA, said: “It was once the best school in Delhi . We want to bring its past glory back and improve the infrastructure.”

Bani Roy , from the batch of '72, said: “It was the top school in Delhi then. We were getting public school education at government school rates.”

Sports were an integral part of curriculum. Kirti Jain, a student of '66 batch and ex-president of National School of Drama said: “Our PT displays can be seen as pioneering choreography. The scale of participation of was so large that we used to perform in stadia.”

Padmashree Ranjana Gauhar was thrilled at the opportunity she got to serve her school. “I am more than willing to do everything I can to restore Lady Irwin's lost prestige.
