We would like to invite others to do the same.  Just send us a short brief of what you have been up to since leaving school and a recent photograph, and we will do the rest to post the information on the web for all to share.

Thanks to the Internet, our cohorts have been in communicating with each other - exchanging notes and photographs, and reminiscing the good old school days. 

To share with you what has transpired, we have compiled the exchange of emails under the "Fond Memories" button.  Click here now to relive the good old days!

Our Teachers - how can we forget them!

Lest We Forget - remembering our classmates who have gone to the happy hunting grounds.

Ho Chee Meng Gets in Touch!

Isn't the Internet marvellous? Barely a week after the launch of our web site, we have had encouraging responses from long lost schoolmates all over the world, some of whom we have had no contact with since leaving school almost 50 years ago!

Thanks to those who have been spreading the word around, our Class of 57/59 Directory is taking shape, albeit slowly. And through David Tan, we managed to trace Ho Chee Meng (ACS Form 5D, 1957) in London.

In true ACS spirit, Chee Meng responded very positively, updating us on what he is doing in London. For your information, we quote below his recent email to Teck Yong:

Dear Teck Yong,

David Tan has very kindly forwarded to me your e-mail in connection with the update of personal detail of 1957/59 cohorts. It is good of you to undertake this project with a view to organising the 50th Anniversary reunion in 2007. I would love to attend this event and am sure that many do appreciate your initiative and hard work.

I have been living in London since 1959 (except for years 1971 to 1973 when I was transferred from London to the Singapore office of Ernst & Young) a period of over 40 years in England. I came to London at 18 years old, got married and raised three children (2 daughters and a son) and am now a grandfather of 5 grandchildren.

In the past 6 years I have returned to Singapore on three occasions as I still have a few siblings, many cousins, nephews and nieces. I am an accountant by profession and plan to retire at the end of the year.

I served as Secretary of ACS OBA in London in 1960/61. I try to be in touch with my contemporaries from ACS when they visit London or when I am in Singapore. Lately I have been in fellowship with Dr Tan Kang Ping who was serving as a Church minister in London until his return to Singapore in early July. This is a brief account of myself.

It was good to hear from you all.

Ho Chee Meng [aka Jimmy Ho]

Emails That Make You Chuckle

Laurence Lim Chin Hock to Norman Wee:
"I remember Teck Yong vividly. He always scored top marks, but not you!"

Norman's reply: "Laurence, speak for yourself"

Laurence again: Norman, anyway I was always at the bottom (too playful)! Just received a reply from Albert Chan. He remembered we were "hurdling" in class, got caught and got slapped by Yap Ah Chuan!
