Alumni had a nice n meaningful day !
They went for morning walk from Old Avantika hotel to Military temple and back to savour the fresh morning air and enjoy benefits of a healthy lifestyle.
This was followed by visiting the neglected Shaheed public park. It was pathetic to see it's unkempt state.
Alumni cleaned up the litters, cleared a big flower bed, did plantation, made and hung two simple bird feeders(Though, monkeys came before the birds!!)

Thanks alumni for being aware and contributing citizens !!
Drip irrigation is a form of irrigation that saves water and fertilizer by allowing water to drip slowly to the roots of many different plants, either onto the soil surface or directly onto the root zone.
If done, through waste plastic bottles, jars etc. money wastage and waste generation can also be contained along with other benefits.
To make Jingle Bell School children learn and practise this water conservation method, alumni converted a large area of the school into a bottle drip irrigation area with bottle structures in the flowerbeds, around plants and trees.
This was done through collection of bottes, learning about technicalities from Pani Sansthan , preparing the structures and finally placing them at JBS.
Yesterday, it was finally handed over to gardening group and Eco committee of JBS by alumni.
Children took round of area which was followed by presentation about the same by alumni
.Mr Ambarish Singh of Pani Sansthan further explained about it.
Thanks to all the volunteers for the spirit of service, concern for the environment and the hard work put in.
Proud of you!
'NEKI KI DEEWAR' was opened for public today by JBA alumni club.
The objective of the wall is to cut down on excessive consumerism and waste generation by giving the items which you don't need/not interested anymore to the other fellow citizens especially poor and needy ones .It develops healthy citizen relationship where everyone is helped mutually without burning a hole in their pocket.
Items like old/new items, toys, utencils, blankets, wollens etc. are put up on this wall and anybody can take from there .
The JBA alumni club collected the same from some Jingle Bell School childrens and donated themselves too. They were further segregated by them for selecting the right things for the wall.
The permission for the wall was taken,then painted and today was opened for public by alumni.
Now anyone can put things there for donation or take what they like.
It is located at "SAI TEMPLE" opposite Government Girls Inter College(GGIC),Faizabad.

'Glimpses of walk to Gulab bari and cleaning of this heritage monument of Faizabad by picking up the litters in the compound. A small endeavour by alumnis to keep our monuments clean.'
It is such a pleasure to find JBA alumnis getting together and making collaborative effort actively to be reunited with all the ex-students
In our first meeting conducted on 28th April, it was heartening to find a lot of initiative and enthusiasm in our alumnis to get-together again and network with as many as possible.
It was proposed that we can form WhatsApp group and Facebook page to get connected. To make it more focussed it is essential to use these platforms only for genuine alumni related correspondence. Jokes and forwards may dilute the objective. Hence,let us support alumni Whatsapp admins like Gautam Ghosh in maintaining the sanctity of the decision.
Alumnis also decided to together make Faizabad a better place to live in. Some proposals like renovation and beautification of Ekta crossing and plantations on Independence day came up.
It was thought that we can also have a cycle rally and think about having an exclusive JBA Alumni club.
It was decided that we shall have meeting at 5pm on every second Thursday and 4th Saturday of every month at Pitara craft and cafe. Regular and consistent getting together shall help in moving ahead with the objective of having a strong alumni association.
Looking forward to meeting you all on 12th May at 5pm at Pitara craft and cafe. Bring the alumnis whom you are in touch with.
It was a pleasure to meet some of the alumni on 12th May,16.
