A GROUP of former Form 5 Science 2 students from Perdana Wazir Secondary School year 1993 recently met up for a reunion at a popular restaurant in Kuala Belait.
The reunion was made merrier with the attendance of two former teachers who taught the students at the school.
Cikgu Haji Ahmad bin Rejab and Pearl Chua, who taught Bahasa Melayu and English respectively, took the time to have lunch with the students.
According to the organiser of the event, Pengiran Hajah Rahmah binti Pengiran Haji Abas, the reunion was made possible with the help of social media such as WhatsApp and Facebook.
“If used wisely, social media such as WhatsApp can help connect old friends and Facebook can help trace former classmates even if they are abroad,” she said.
Now a Deputy Principal Administration at Perdana Wazir Secondary School, she said she owed her success to all the teachers and her peers for the never ending support.
It was a lively occasion where the former students shared stories of the school years and mingled with their favourite teachers.
One particular memory was a field trip to Kuala Balai when Cikgu Haji Ahmad brought the students to visit a sago factory.
