South Point Ex-Students’ Association (ASPEXS) on Wednesday handed a cheque for Rs 1.2 lakh to Swami Purnatmanandaji Maharaj, secretary (foreign affairs) and chairman of all overseas branches of Bharat Sevashram Sangha, to boost the organization’s effort to alleviate the sufferings of the Amphan-affected people.
The former students’ association of South Point has always been in the forefront of providing relief to society at large by marshalling its members—the school alumni spread all over the globe. At the start of the Covid pandemic, PPEs were provided by ASPEXS to Pointer doctors, who are at the frontline of the fight against the novel coronavirus. During earlier natural calamities, like Cyclone Aila, ASPEXS, along with South Point High School, constructed houses for those affected in the Sunderbans.
One of the flagship initiatives of ASPEXS is its Care Wing, which provides emotional, medical and, at times, financial assistance to teachers who have retired from the services of the school.
