131st ACS Founder's Day Celebrations

The first day of March is a red letter day for ACSians young and old. Each year, as the schools celebrate ACS Founder’s Day with parades, thanksgiving services, award presentation ceremonies and entertaining performances, the ACS family looks forward to participating in the traditional ACS Founder’s Day Dinner and the Past vs Present Games.

At this year’s 131st ACS Founder’s Day Dinner, more than 1,000 ACSians of all ages and from all walks of life gathered at the Shangri-la Hotel Singapore Island Ballroom to celebrate God’s blessings. With emcee Dr Wong Heng Yu in control, the activities and performances planned for the evening by the ACS OBA Management Committee were executed with precision.

As the photographs captured by Mr Danny Toh, ACS (Independent)’s Dean of Art & Design in the following pages depict, it was a joyous time for catching up and renewing friendships.

The merry celebrations were not restricted to just Singapore. Over thousands of kilometres away on the ‘islands of the main’ and ‘western shore’, ACSians overseas congregated to keep the ACS flag flying as they celebrated the alma mater’s birthday in Jakarta, Melbourne and London in grand style.

The annual Past vs Present Games this year featured a new sport – Basketball. Experience prevailed over youthful exuberance when the Old Boys, despite expanding waistlines and receding hairlines, triumphed in every sport except for squash to retain the Ang Peng Tiam Challenge trophy.
