All excited over ‘5555’ reunion

The reunion fever is on for the old boys of the Malacca High School (batch of 68-72/74) most of whom were also pupils of the Bandar Hilir English School (BHES) (62-67).

The old boys, who were born in 1955 and are 55 or will turn 55 this year, are all set for their ‘5555’ Golden Year Big Bash on Saturday.

The event, to mark their “official retirement age’” will be held at the Tiara Golf Resort in Malacca in grand style with great food, lively entertainment and fitting music of the 60’s and 70’s performed by popular pub-circuit duo Vernon and Fats.

Close to 90 of them have already confirmed attendance, including some who would be accompanied by their wives. Several old boys will fly in from Australia and Britain for the occasion.
All set for the big bash: Members of the organising team with the reunion banner at the school last week.

About 20 teachers, now mostly in their 70’s and 80’s will also be there to share their reminisces of the group and make the occasion a more memorable one.

Larry Yong, spokesman for the organising committee, said a tele-conferencing was also being planned to enable several old boys living abroad but unable to make it back for the bash, to virtually join the reunion.

“The response for the ‘5555’ Golden Year Big Bash has been tremendous so far. But we hope that the remaining old boys and the batch of old girls who did their Form Six in MHS will also come on board for this historic happening,” he said after the committee members held their preparatory meeting at the school last week.

Details of the gathering have been posted of the BHES 62-67 & MHS 68-72/74 community set up on Facebook to keep the group connected.

Yong said before the bash on Saturday, the group would make nostalgic visits to the two schools to relive their old memories and share stories of their three-decade old schooldays.

The golfers in the group, however, will get things swinging a day earlier.

They will play a round of golf at the Tiara Golf Resort this Friday.
