"ACS FOREVER" Around the World

Crubox Birthday CakeThe Covid-19 virus outbreak has taken a heavy toll on businesses and economies around the world. In the schools, many activities were curtailed to minimise the risk of potential exposure and for the first time, this year’s ACSOBA Past vs Present Games and Founder’s Day Dinner were cancelled.

However, these setbacks did not deter ACSians from gathering in smaller groups to remember the founding of our beloved alma mater. It was heart-warming to see photographs and video clips on social media of ACSians all over the world remembering and giving thanks to our pioneers, past and present teachers and principals, benefactors and stakeholders of the school, and especially God for His grace, love and abundant blessings.

This year, Founder’s Day celebrations overseas included London, Auckland, Melbourne, Brisbane, Jakarta and for the first time, Sydney, Adelaide, Cambridge and Toronto. Celebrations may have taken place in other cities that we do not know about but what we are certain is that the 1st of March is always remembered by many who have passed through the portals of ACS.

Click below for a summary of how the celebrations went all over the world. Indeed, the show of solidarity speaks volumes for the ACS spirit.

After last year’s successful event at Red Dynasty Paintball Park, the adventuresome group from the Class of 84 headed up north to Malaysia’s X Park Sunway Iskandar to celebrate this year’s 134th ACS Founder’s Day.

Jeremy Thow, the organising member of the group, said, “As we have been meeting every Saturday morning at 6.30am for a jog around Bishan Park to keep fit and to catch up over breakfast, we thought it would be fun to celebrate this year’s Founder’s Day with a Go-Kart challenge.”

And indeed, a great time they had! Besides the adrenaline pumping race, there were opportunities for fellowship and sumptuous meals to cap off the day.
