Six former students of ACS (SMK Methodist) Ipoh took time off work one recent morning to visit their alma mater.
They, from the Class of 1979 (Form 5), had collected some money for the school during a class reunion in Kuala Lumpur last year.
At the annual reunion for ACS/MGS Class of 1979, which was also in conjunction with their 50th birthday, old boys Ferric Yeong and Australia-based Joe Ch’ng, came up with the idea to raise funds through an auction, to contribute towards the development of their school.
The auction was well supported by students from the Class of 1979 who are residing in Malaysia and abroad.
In a simple, yet touching ceremony, a cheque for RM10,000 was handed over to Principal Mdm. Soot Mooy Ching.
The former students were taken on a tour of the school, which they left 34 years ago, after sitting for the Malaysian Certificate of Education (MCE).
