The City School launched its Alumni Association for its Southern Region in a simple elegant ceremony. The event was attended by a select gathering of invitees including Heads and alumni of The City School, prominent citizens and members of the media.

Mr. Robin Davies, the British Council’s Director for Sind and Baluchistan, was the Chief Guest for the occasion and spoke on the value of an alumni not just for the ex-students but also for their alma mater. Mr. Shehryar Ahmad, Regional Director for The City School’s Southern Region, said “The City School is one of the best and largest private school networks in Pakistan.

Former City School students Khaqan Sikander and Dabeer Hemani both spoke about what The City School has given to them and the success they have achieved professionally and socially following their meaningful education. Much to the excitement of all ex-students who could not be present at the event, the launch was streamed live through the internet and social media, with live tweets keeping the global City School Alumni abreast with the happenings in real time.

The evening ended with a concert by the musical group Club 777 as old friends met and reminisced over their school days and planned how to make their Alumni Association one of the most active in the city.
