"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.

The 134th ACS Founder’s Day was celebrated on February 28 at Walkers of Whitehall, a pub located in London’s iconic Trafalgar Square. In attendance at the dinner were 65 ACSians ranging from the classes of 2006 to 2018.

Sumptuous food, great conversations, and laughter marked the joyous occasion. Friends both old and new reminisced about their times in school and exchanged cherished memories of their days of yore.

The memorable evening ended off in the spirit of ACS tradition, with the singing of our ACS anthem with fervour, in one loud, united voice. Indeed, the regions round echo the sound of ACS forever!
