Golden Jubilee of OPA celebrated

Old Placidians' Association (OPA), an organisation of the former students of the St Placid's High School, yesterday celebrated its golden jubilee amidst a reunion with the theme 'Reach Out Through Fellowship.'

Rev Patrick D'Rozario, bishop of Chittagong, inaugurated the ceremony as chief guest by hosting national flag and releasing balloons on the school premises in the morning.
