Setapak school’s former students relive memories with teachers

A total of 38 students from Air Panas Girls School, who left between 1973 and 1976, attended the reunion.

IT WAS a joyous reunion for a group of SMK (P) Air Panas former students.

The school in Setapak, Kuala Lumpur, is also known as Air Panas Girls School (APGS).

The group of 38 former students who left school from 1973 to 1976, and three of their teachers met up over a meal at a hotel in Kuala Lumpur.

Former student Wong Lee Meng said, “Some of us have not met our teachers and schoolmates for nearly 50 years.

“So this turned out to be a great opportunity to catch up on where we left off and rekindle the memories of our schooldays,” she said.

“Anecdotes of our teachers’ acts of kindness and thoughtfulness drew much laughter, especially the one where a teacher helped a student not only start her career as a teacher but also found her a life partner.”

Wong said the former students also presented flowers to their teachers and had group singing sessions where they sang songs from yesteryear, such as Those Were the Days.

“No matter how much we have changed, it felt like nothing had changed at all as we savoured the precious moments together,” she said.
