As a run-up to the Methodist Girls’ School’s 120th Anniversary in 2017, the Old Girls’ Association organised a reunion dinner on Saturday, June 13 at Impiana Hotel, Ipoh. It began with a cocktail reception followed by dinner.
Running on the theme, ‘Friendship through the Years’, students of years 1961 to 2003 along with 46 retired teachers, taking up a total of 48 tables, graced the occasion. Present were former principals, Sivaprasanna and Nalini, former headmistresses, Che Zora and Lim Chin Lian present principal, Datin Mungit Kaur, present headmistress, Datin Azian and representatives of the Parent-Teachers Association of both the primary and secondary schools.
As an interlude, the school’s students performed two dances: a mambo and an Indian dance where the attendees were invited to join the fun. Former student, Wern Sze Gill sang two touching songs, ‘You Raise Me Up’ and ‘Friends Forever’ dedicated to all the diners. There was also a quiz about the school in which those answering correctly were given prizes and a lucky draw dip.
The Golden Girl award went to ex-student cum ex-teacher, Mrs Vivian Chong, 88. The attendees had an enjoyable evening catching up with one another. Shrieks of delight were heard, as some of the ladies had not met for the last 30 years. Everyone was full of praises to the organisers and looked forward to the next get-together.
