THE SMKPP Centennial Gala Dinner may have been over last Saturday, but the reunion mood is obviously still in the air.
Last night, there was another round of reunion amongst my friends over dinner, this time with three former teachers – one from Standard One (38 years ago), and two others from secondary school (29 years ago).
The teachers have obviously managed to keep well and young too, while the students have matured gracefully.
Earlier in the day, my four older siblings made a trip back to their primary school in Jalan Ipoh. A school that was opened in 1963, it is now in dire need of funds to upkeep it.
My older brother naturally have a special bond with the school as he was the Head Boy in Std 6 (over four decades ago) before going to Victoria Institution. My eldest sister completed her primary education there while the other two did mid-way before transferring to PEPS and eventually PESS.
Meanwhile, in two continents, three locations and eight hours apart… Accra – Petaling Jaya – Port Dickson… another little reunion took place among three Standard One friends (one was the long lost friend from 33 years ago) via WA chats. And just like a fairy tale, they chatted happily ever after. 🙂
