With notable alumni in attendance, including the school’s first head boy, memories of the school’s humble beginnings in a converted villa back in 1992, were shared, in addition to now historic photographs of the school’s opening.
Having initially opened its doors to 340 students, the school now serves a diverse community of over 30 nationalities, and around 1700 students in total, and provides a dual curriculum approach of Indian CBSE and the UK-based Cambridge International.
Dr Sreyus Palliyani, a former student from the school's early days, shared his feelings:
“I am so honoured to have been part of the red-carpet event for OOL’s 30th anniversary celebrations! So glad I got to meet all my favourite teachers once again! A big thank you and salute to Principal Miller for what you have done with this proud institution. Here’s to 30 more successful years!”
Mr Naveen Balakrishnan, the school's first head boy, shared his memories:
“The school back then was a wooden caravan building and I have fond memories of faculty who taught us, including our chemistry teacher, Mr Pappy Joykutty, who is now CBSE supervisor.”
Mr P Joykutty, Education Supervisor, who has worked with the school since its beginning, said:
“My heartfelt congratulations to all at OOL in the completion of 30 years. This school always held a special place in my heart, and I am proud to be associated with OOL. I wish the school many more decades of growth, progress and success. May God bless this school always.”
