It is a great pleasure to celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of the official launch of Hartley College website. The Hartley College website, hartleycollege.org, was officially launched by the webteam during the 10th Hartleyite Nite of HCPPA Canada & USA in Toronto, Canada on November 07, 1998 as the follow-up of the initiative from the former HCPPA-Ottawa division.
The mission of the website has been
We have been successful in our mission so far. As of today, about 1838 Hartleyites registered their information in our online database from 37 countries. Website gets thousands of hits every month for information about Hartley College. Hartleyites sent thousands of emails using our First-Contact email utility. Many HCPPA events were announced via the website and its emailing-lists, which have been growing steadily. Many obituary notices of Hartleyites were also posted. Remarkably the website has been up and running without any disruption. The website contains enormous amount of useful information about the college, her PPAs, her HCPPA Trust, her teachers and students.
- to promote the college as a whole as well as her students and teachers
- to function as effective communication and information sharing tool between the college, students & PPAs
- to serve as a general source of information about the college
Since the inception, the website has become well-known around the world for connecting Hartleyites and world-wide HCPPAs, for sharing many stories and for supporting the College in many ways. HCPPA Trust linked hartleycollege.org in the homepage of the HCPPA Trust website.
Integral to the success of our website is the dedicated volunteers who have helped us to reach where we are now. First and foremost is our Webteam, consisting of Mr. S. Sivaananthan, Dr. S. Anpalagan, Mr. P. Suthakar, Mr. S. Mathialagan, and Mr. N. Nandan. We also would like to thank all the volunteers, consisting of Mr. Kalathan, Mr. Harendra, Mr. N. Mohan and Mr. Velalahan, who helped us in bringing the web site up and launching in 1998. Our representatives in each HCPPAs around the Globe have made great contribution to the success of this website.
We would like to acknowledge HCPPA Ottawa Division for their initiative of the website project and the world wide HCPPAs and the HCPPA Trust for their moral support since the inception of the website. HCPPA Canada & USA does voluntarily support our website financially by paying one fourth of the domain/hosting expenses annually since 1998. They helped the webteam to officially launch the website on their 10th Annual Hartleyites' Nite in Toronto.
We will continue to provide services to Hartleyites through the website. We plan to include information on our past and present teachers and a photo gallery of Hartley College. We will also work more closely with the College and her PPAs.
We value your feedback, welcome your suggestions and solicit your contribution to provide Hartleyites and Hartley College with improved services and to make the website as one of the best tools to support our Alma Mater.
Thank you very much.
