Initiatives of the Alumni Association

Our School founded in the year 1818 at Royapettah, Chennai has reached the proud milestone of two hundred years of its establishment in the year 2018. Wesley Alumni Association is very happy to celebrate this occasion and has plans for renovating and augmenting the old infrastructure of the School with new additional facilities. Many projects are planned as part of Bicentenary Year celebrations.

Hall Renovation Works in Progress

Some of the initiatives taken by the Wesley Alumni Association are listed here:

The WAA was able to assist the school authorities to construct 10 concrete benches around the play ground for students to sit and watch the games. They could also have their lunch on these benches during Lunch Break under the tree shade.

The WAA had assisted the school authorities in constructing the Rev. James Lynch Hall, which is being used as Noon Meal Hall for the students.

Wesley Alumni Association had interacted with the Lions Club for installing a Reverse Osmosis Plant for Drinking Water. This is helping the students to have quality drinking water at School.

A Smart Class Room has been established with a Video Projector, which is also used for having Video Conferencing Sessions.
