Mr. Anurag Kishor, an MSW by profession and the Social Representative of Ingraham Institute will be the programme co-ordinator of `Ingraham Bal Gurukul'.

Let us pray to God Almighty and see that we set a role model in the field of empowerment education, said Dr. Hepesh Shepherd.

I have been an alumni of Ingraham Institute for 14 years, starting right from my Nursery to 10+2 Education.
After reading this information on this site I feel extremely obliged to my School for helping the ONE's IN NEED.
This is not a new thing. When I was in school I too used to participate in all these activities regarding helping the needy. This has been a tradition here, & it does makes us a responsible social being.
No feeling could be as promising & rejuvinating in my life, I know, as being an alumni of this institution.
Im proud of my Institute.

Hi Sashi and Dr.Iyer,

Yes it is a good initiative a philanthropic effort to uplift the people around us. I am also a proud alumnus of Ingraham and was a part of the school during Madam Chowfin and Sir Jethro tenure. Once madam Chowfin shared a plan with me of planting Amaltash and Gulmohar trees around Ingraham to have combination of Yellow and Red flowering trees however now the same area has been encroached by hawkers till the boundary wall of our school.
I hope things would change in near future and we would continue to keep up the good work.

Hello Dr. Iyer and Gaurav And Ayushi,

Thanks for all of yours Blessings(specially Dr.Iyers').
I am so sorry that I didn't left any contact of mine last time.
Also pardon me for being away for such a long time...

Mr.Gaurav, I too studied during Mrs.Chowfins tenure, and later on after she passed away(may GOD has given us some more time with her) Mr.Harrison took on the office for some time and then finally Mr.Joel became our Principal. If you relate to the same time do contact me...
Hey Ayushi, I congratulate you for being in Canada(busy with work) and for being an alumni of INGRAHAM. My good wishes for all your future endeavours.
Do drop your contact info..
