Welcome to the new Official Site of
Class of 1963.
came about from the
contributions made by all present at the Come Together Nite at the OFA
2003. A meeting of schoolmates and classmates, many who met for the
time after leaving our alma mater for 40 years.
The joy, "oh no" it was rather the disbelief that the someone you knew
years ago has transformed into some other size and shape that made
the meeting an end to their suspense & expectations. Many shook
heads in disbelief in what they saw in flesh and bone, sorry more
Many kept asking to confirm. Anyway those who were not present should
seen the expressions on everyone's faces as if a long lost brother had
Nearly 50 of us congregated at the school field which used to be the

into the canteen and of course remembered the Prefect's Room (the
of the wayward).
Then the battle was on again - football. Home against Away. Believe it
or not, the away won. Ong Chong Hye, who recently had a heart by pass,
scored the only goal.
That night amidst the rain and thunder, the group met at the kopi tiam
run by Peng Kiat where we ate, drank and talked till the cows came home.
Still unsatisfied, a buffet dinner at the OFA was held the following
night. Another 20 others who did not come for the retro at PFS joined
in that night at OFA. Everyone was given the chance to talk. At the
a 2 minute silence was given to the few who could not be with us - Dr
Lung Ho, Sasson Hai Jacob, Dr Loh Hun Eng, Gajah Toh Cheng Swee, Goh
Hong and Ch'ng Kim Ling.
Of course Robert Ong sang followed by a few other newly emerged Ka
lah ok Singers. And all of them were good!
We have vowed to meet again at another place and time - soon. China
maybe! Over to Gan Khai Choon.
