Alumni is the term used for a passed out or ex-student of a school/college/university. When the ex-students of an institute are called for a meet event, then it is called the alumni meet. Alumni meet is a fun and memorable event for every passed-out student. They get a chance to meet their classmates, friends, and teachers and relive the heartfelt moments of their life. In the alumni meet, people also get a chance to share their stories, struggles, and success tips.

Long Welcome Speech for Alumni Meet
Good Morning to the respected teachers, alumni, dear friends, and fellow students!
Today is a special day as we are celebrating the 15th alumni meet of the school. I feel proud and immensely thankful to be able to carry this traditional ritual of our school ahead. First of all, I want to welcome the alumni of this school who took time out of their busy schedules to be with us here today and who have excelled in the respective fields of their careers. I am sure that each one of us will surely learn a lot from you all and I hope that this meet brings you back a lot of heartfelt and wonderful moments of your life.
School plays a crucial role in any person’s life. It provides us not only the knowledge of required subjects but also the basic learnings and values of life. It prepares us to face the challenges of life and helps in building the basic character of a person. A student is like a raw seed who is nurtured and watered by the teachers in the hope that one day this seed will bloom into a beautiful tree. They also teach us that the bigger a tree grows the deeper the roots belong. And I am fortunate enough to say that our roots belong here.
The relationship between a teacher and student is like clay and potter. Potter may be hard on clay from the outside but on the other hand, he provides it support and moulds it into beautiful artwork. The perfect examples of it are our alumni present over here who are doing great in their lives and thus making our school and teachers prouder.
Today, welcoming our alumni here is bringing a sea of emotions here. I am sure you are already feeling the nostalgia. Everyone remembers his first and last day of school and I am sure most of us cry on both days. We leave the school but the school never goes out of us. It is so hard to say goodbye to the most beautiful part of your life. That’s why we organize this alumni meet annually so our ex-students can relive a part of their childhood.
Our school is also progressing day by day. Now students have many more opportunities to explore their ways and learnings. Our fellow students have prepared some programs for you. I hope you enjoy all the programs and the arrangements made by the school.
At last, I hope that this meeting brings you joy and reminisces about all your golden memories. We all are eager to hear your stories and experiences of life and I am sure that at the end of this day we are going to learn a lot from you all.
Thank you and enjoy your day everyone

This teaches you how to fly in the skies and also to always be grounded.
