"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.

The ACSOBA Management Committee hosted principals, board members and governors of the BOG, BOMs and the ACS Foundation to a thanksgiving buffet dinner on March 1 to acknowledge God’s enduring faithfulness.

The evening began with a short address by Mr Lim Tat, President of the ACSOBA, who shared the lyrics of a familiar hymn - O God, Our Help in Ages Past - to remind us of the eternal hope we all share in Christ Jesus, our Lord. After the welcome address, everyone joined in a rendition of the school anthem. Rev Kenneth Huang then shared a verse (Psalms 90:17) from the same psalm this hymn was based on and led the coterie in saying grace.

During the dinner, Mr Richard Seow, Chairman of the ACS BOG, presented ‘service to education’ medals from MOE to board members Mr Lim Teck Yin and Rev Dr Chiang Ming Shun for their valuable contributions to ACS. The evening ended with the benediction led by Rev Malcolm Tan and a group photograph which reinforced the atmosphere of family and solidarity as ONE ACS.

To God Be The Glory, The Best Is Yet To Be!
