The Modern School Old Students’ Association is one of the most active & vibrant Old Students’
Association in the country today. Through ‘The Modernites Trust’ (Trust), formed in 1983, we the old students have consolidated our talent pool and resources which we aim to give back to the Society what we have received from it by raising funds for various philanthropic activities undertaken for the Student/Teachers of the School.
The proceeds from the activities have been used for sponsoring “Scholarships” for needy & meritorious students in Modern School. We presently have 35 such students studying in the School under this programme. The selected students, generally from class 6th, are given financial assistance towards fees & uniform throughout till they pass out of the School, i. e from S1 to S7.
The Trust is also utilizing these funds for giving "GURU-DAKSHINA" purse to old retired teachers as a mark of respect for their services rendered to the school. Till today over 55 retired teachers have benefited from the scheme.
The Income of the Trust has been going down with fall in interest rates whereas the School fees have been rising steeply over the past few years. Presently the fees and related expenditure ranges up to Rs.2,00,000/- P.A. per student.
To sustain our activities, we request a positive support from you / your organization.
Apart from corporate donors like MGF, Inter Globe, various batches of 1960, 1964, 1966, 1967, 1974, 1979, 1980, 1983, 1984, 1993 etc. have also come together and jointly contributed to the corpus fund for education of some of our scholars.
