A total of 25 former students of Brunei Preparatory School of the 1969 intake gathered for a second reunion at the Al-‘Afiah Hotel in Kiulap yesterday.

Former class teacher Haji Suhaili bin Haji Umar was the guest of honour.

Event committee member Pengiran Haji Bakar bin Pengiran Haji Sulaiman said the event served as a platform to gather and reminisce memories during their school days as well as foster relationship.

“Our reunions are invaluable to us because it gives us a chance to reconnect with those we spent so many formidable years with,” he said.

The event’s highlight was the cake-cutting ceremony followed by the recitation of Doa Selamat to mark the special gathering and to celebrate members’ birthdays.
