Latest Site News

I    have    started    to    process    of    redesigning    the    site
pages   and   display   of   photos.      Because   of   the   large
number    of    pages    and    the    volume    of    photos    this
work   will   take   some   time.   Apologies   in   advance   for
broken links and missing pages. It will all be worth it.

Update from Lynne Copping of Singapore Schools
Reunions
Happy   New   year   to   you,   I   hope   that   you   all   had   a   good   Xmas   and
new year.
We   had   a   very   good   mini   reunion   last   month   when   a   few   of   us
decided    to    go    on    a    Portsmouth    harbour    trip    to    see    the    new
aircraft carriers, with a meal in the Royal Maritime Club.
The   Singapore   reunion   is   being   planned,   with   possibly   going   out
on   the   10th   November   2020   for   a   few   days   and   having   lunch   in
the   former   St   John's   school   (now   the   UWCSEA)   on   Friday   13th,      it
won't   matter   if   you   never   went   to   that   particular   school,   they   are
just happy to host us.
We   will   then   go   on   to   Penang   and   have   a   barbeque   on   Saturday
21st   November   and   return   to   the   UK,   possibly   via   Kuala   Lumpur
about the 24th or 25th November.
These   dates   are   quite   flexible,   those   that   want   to   spend   longer   in
Singapore   can   do   so,   you   can   fly,   bus   or   train   to   Penang   and   meet
us there if you want to spend longer in Singapore.
Once   we   have   booked   our   tickets   and   hotels   I   will   let   you   know
what   we   are   doing,   so   that   you   can   come   on   the   same   flights   as   us
(or   choose   different   ones   if   you   get   a   better   deal),   the   same   with
hotels   -   stay   in   the   same   one   as   us   or   choose   a   different   one   if   it
suits you better.
As   far   as   Penang   goes,   we   will   be   in   the   Bayview   Beach   hotel,   Batu
Ferringhi,   which   will   give   us   a   good   rate,   as   we   have   been   there
quite a few times now.
I   think   that   the   flight   prices   for   November   may   be   out   now,   so   we
will   be   doing   a   bit   of   research,   and   once   we   have   a   firm   plan   I   will
let you know it.
Looking forward to seeing you on that aeroplane,
Regards,
Lynne
