KARACHI – The school of more than 5,000 Raffles Girls School (RDS), the most recent graduates to attend their alma mater on Saturday (October 17), is one of those who attended the school in 1940. Returned for the last present.
This was the last homecoming event on Anderson Road before it moved to school this October on Broad Road.
The school also celebrates 140 years since it was formally established in 1879 with an enrollment of 77 students.
Mr. Betty Chen, 92, from the Class of 1941, was one of those who remembered the memorial.
The patron and former president of the Chinese Women's Association remembered her days as an RG girl, and how she was enrolled in school.
His mother brought him to school, then on Queens Street, but Principal Dorothy Bucknell told them there was no vacant lot.
"My mom looked in a room, took an empty chair and asked if it was occupied."
"When the teacher said it wasn't, she told me to sit down, and that's how she got involved," Mrs Chen said.
More importantly, it was the friendship she had formed during her hugs that she had closed her heart to.
Her bullshit, Mrs. Eve Kueva, attended the 900th meeting. The two have been in contact for decades and still meet regularly, though many of them have passed away.
The alumni were accompanied by exhibitions and activities representing a variety of models by friends, including the "Birthday 80s" and "Swing Roll 80s" and "Salvation 80s," which have been organized by alumni over the years.
At Booth 80, visitors were given small summons in the form of a short-lived report book design and were treated with baking cakes as other lights turned around.
In the over 2000s, instagram photo opportunities were modest. Photographs of the lives of school principals of that era are taking pictures for former students.
Famous RGSL singers like Kate Chen and Joanna Dong, and Tang T's Blood of the Famous Reds have also been featured in the amphitheater. The event was attended by and the Union Minister for Community and Information & Culture, Community and Young Sim Ann also attended.
The tea was cut into the shape of a big birthday cake and Anderson Road, after every home visit, and led by some school landlords.
Ms Chua Yin, 39, from the 1996 class, said she was sad to go to school.
She is one of the first branches of the school when the school changed its current status in 1993.
"We started with this building here from the beginning," Banks said.
