ONE ACS Celebrates 122nd Founder's Day

ACSians in Melbourne & London celebrate ACS Founder's Day!

Being miles away from Singapore did not prevent loyal ACSians overseas from celebrating Founderís Day.

In Melbourne, ACSians from as far back as the graduation Class of 57 to the more recent Class of 2002, as well as former ACS teachers, interacted and exchanged experiences over dinner in a Chinese restaurant in the Melbourne suburb of Hawthorn.

Among the former teachers present at the dinner, which was organized by Dr Suresh John (Year of 1978), was Mrs Lee Gek Kim who reported: "It was a great feeling to be together as ONE, knowing that ACSians in Singapore and other corners of the world were also celebrating the founding of our great alma mater. Indeed, 'the regions round echo the sound, of ACS Forever'!"


Over in London, 40 ACSians gathered at the Laureate Restaurant in Chinatown on Sunday 2 March to commemorate Founderís Day.

Among those present was Thum Ping Tjin (ACS Independent 1995 & ACJC 1996), the first Singaporean to swim the English Channel.

The evening was a tremendous success, thanks to the fine efforts of the organisers: San Choo (ACS 1966), Samuel Lee (ACS 1987 & ACJC 1990) and Caleb Yap (ACS Independent 2002 & ACJC 2004).

According to Josiah Poh (ACS Barker Road 1999), ďWe all had a great time reminiscing the great times we had in school. Some of us stayed on after the dinner to continue the fellowship and networking late into the night

All having a great time!
