Great are those who are serene in mind….
We the Devians are successful in fulfilling the dreams of our mother Devi by being good citizens who are enriched with not only professional abilities but also humanity thereby being unique in society.
As capable past Devians we have gathered around our mother Devi as the PAST PUPILS’ ASSOCIATION so as to promote the welfare of the school and the interest of the past and present pupils; to encourage mutual understanding, friendship and co-operation among the members, for the benefit of both the school and the members themselves; to provide guidance and encouragement to the younger generation of Devians, and to render social services and to undertake charitable, educational, religious and social welfare activities for students and all others as well.
