"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.

ACS Founder’s Day was celebrated for the first time in Toronto, Canada, albeit modestly.

It all started with a posting in FaceBook by Clifford Koh Wee Hee (ACS (International) Class of 2013) enquiring whether any ACS old boys in Toronto would like to meet up as he will be Toronto on March 1. Kelvin Soh and Subhas Nambisan (both from the Class of 78) responded but regretfully, Clifford eventually could not make it.

According to Kelvin, “A few other ACSians living in Toronto were contacted but, on the day, only Subhas accompanied by his son, Sachin, and I turned up. We had a great time reminiscing our past!”
