We celebrated the 35th anniversary of our graduation from TPS in 1979! Our reunion was held on 24 May 2014 Saturday at St Joseph’s Institution International, with some 52 students and 18 TPS staff attending. The photos below bear testimony to the joyful occasion and pictures do speak a thousand words!

Way back when, the height difference was not much. Ong Swee Heok, maybe Edmund Wee Heng Cheang drank Dumex milk instead of the milk at school and as their tagline said "Grow like a champion, grow!"

These are the three Dory's, so named after that forgetful blue damsel in "Finding Nemo". These 3 claimed to have suffered severe lapses in their memory. For Matthew, it was somewhat self-inflicted for he spent more time at Thomson Sec than he did at TPS!!
