PENAMAPNG – Forty-seven students and teachers of Class 1979 of St Francis Convent Secondary School Kota Kinabalu met after 39 years on 21 Mar 2018.
The event was hosted by Preetha Joseph at her residence at Teck Guan Villa Penampang. Although residing in the United States, she comes home yearly to commemorate the death anniversary of her mother.
It was certainly a joyful reunion for all the classmates – one science class and two art classes – some have never met since they left school in 1979. They spent the night sharing food and stories.
Teachers invited included Franciscan Sister Cecilia Liew (principal, SFC primary), Mrs Christina Chen, Chai Moi Len (formerly Mrs Poon), and Mrs Wong Wan Cher.
Before the night was over, they promised to meet again on their 40th anniversary next year.
