"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.

To celebrate Founder’s Day, the golf kakis from the Class of 78 took to the Ponderosa Golf & Country Club greens in Johor Bahru on February 27 to vie for the aptly named ‘Dauntless Cup’.

Weather and course conditions were fine that day and Azman Haron (4H) posted the lowest score after bagging three birdies. Last year’s champion, Kwok Tjin Ong (4G), came in a close second.

“In all, it was a wonderful day with old schoolmates, and we were happy to keep the ACS flag flying from year to year. We will certainly aim to do this again next year. The Best Is Yet to Be!” commented our golf captain, Thusita De Silva.
