Easter CheerSince 2017, Mr Wan Fook Weng and a group of appreciative Old Boys and Old Girls have been organising regular get-togethers over sumptuous meals for the retired teachers across all ACS schools during special occasions such as Chinese New Year, Easter and Christmas.

When COVID-19 struck, this unwavering commitment to show care to the community of teachers that nurtured generations of ACS students inspired Oldham Club members to be involved in the logistics of carrying out the endeavour to bring the regular get-together to the retired teachers’ doorsteps.

The response was quick and enthusiastic. The Badminton, Tennis and Water Polo chapters procured the contents of the care bag while Athletics, Choir, Easter CheerHockey, Rugby, and Scouting made sure the bags were packed and dispatched. 25 bags were delivered to Mr Wan, who had assembled his own team of volunteers to be involved in the pre-Covid meal celebrations, and another 25 bags delivered by the chapter members and some well-meaning alumni who are in regular contact with their old teachers.

The Easter bags were filled with a range of goodies ranging from instant cereal and drinks to Bak Zhang, and even fresh seasonal fruit! The bags were personally delivered either contactless or with a short visit according to safe distancing measures, based on the comfort level of the retired teachers that the delivery team contacted.

It is hoped that our retired teachers and school leaders who served in their youth and gave their energies to taking care of all of us will continue to be and feel cared for by our ACS community.
