Masquerade Night


The Convent Girls Alumni or COGA, started in 1957, recently held their 54th annual dinner at the Royal Perak Golf Club with an attendance of 150 former students and teachers.

The theme for this year’s dinner was ‘Masquerade” and a majority of the members turned up with a mask at the very least.

It was a fun night with entertainment of belly dancers provided by Susan Dance Academy and of course the most creative masquerade costume which was won by former student Anne Marie Tham.

Twins, Anna and Agnes Wong, both former students, added gaiety to the evening with their emceeing.

During the dinner a sum of RM500 was collected for the Alumni’s annual social project called “Next Step Project”. According to Alumni President Terezinha Gonsalves the project is an annual programme which provides its students with information on the vocational opportunities available after leaving school saying that “not everybody will score 10 As but there is an opportunity out there for everyone to earn a living and possibly contribute back to the community.”
