Howrah Zilla School Alumni Association is an independent body, run by the ex-students of Howrah Zilla School, and registered under the West Bengal Society Registration Act, 1961.
Since its inception, dated back on 1st December 2010, the association had to undergo the obvious teething problems; quite understandably it is quite a task to reach out to the plethora of students that the legendary institution has seen passing out in last 175 years. But still, staying true to its mission of reuniting all the passed-out students and collaborating with each one of them in an uniform space, and vision of making meaningful changes to the society, especially to the student base of the school and around, the association has not been derailed for a single day in last these all years.
Supported by the ever increasing member-base of the association, and guided by the profound leadership of the association, the belief is strong enough to take HZSAA to a new high in days to come about.
We are heading the epic 175 years celebration of our Alma Mater - so the coming days are all the more crucial to ensure the celebration soar a new high and be effective in all manner. In this context, this AGM is immensely crucial to chalking out the strategy for the days to come.

HOWRAH ZILLA SCHOOL
We, at Howrah Zilla School, are always enthusiastic to build up a vibrant association between the Alumni and the School in such a way that diverse platforms may be arranged for our discerning pupils for pulling off quality, values, and distinction in life. The school, however, has made exceptional progress over the years. The Alumni have earned fame and excellence for themselves through their commitments to the society as well as to their respective trades and professions as their domains include a wide array of disciplines. The Alumni credentials have thus put forth a very strong collective voice throughout the past 173 glorious years.
This apart, the expertise and wisdom of the alumni can formulate, to a great extent, tangible differences in a bid to shape a more pulsating and new-fangled HZS. Improved interactions between the Alumni and the students would also create a plethora of opportunities for the pupils of HZS in the offing. Which is why the key achievers of HZS are honoured and felicitated at the Alumni Meet every year.
As the ex-officio vice-president of the Association, it will be a privilege on my behalf to reach out to the Alumni by fulfilling various administrative duties, as and when required, and to promote a sense of camaraderie, legitimacy and discipline among all.
Let us, then, see the school as a launching pad—a somewhat possible means to propel pupils towards prospects, maybe at times outside their immediate environment. After all, we, at HZS, help a pupil in securing a wishbone, a backbone and some funny bones while he imbibes life skills to strive, thrive and survive.
