Over 70 former students from the 1974-1976 intake at Sultan Hassanal Bolkiah Teachers College attended a reunion in Rimba on Sunday.

The event marked the first get-together since the alumni graduated 45 years ago to celebrate Teacher’s Day.

Organising committee chairman Haji Metassan bin Haji Bungso extended his appreciation to committee members for putting together the event while reminding his former classmates to practise social and physical distancing in line with the Ministry of Health (MoH) guidelines amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Earlier, a recitation of Surah Al-Fatihah, led by Haji Ibrahim bin Haji Manaf, opened the event. Haji Ibrahim also led the reading of the Tahlil and Doa Arwah.
