Chang Yi's 1953-1955-methodist-school-students.html

1953-1955 Methodist School Students' Reunion in 1997

Digging for information and historical records can lead one to surprises and even recovery of long lost friendship. This has happened to me more often than just one off occasion.

Ann Chin and I for example. She has blogged about it...and today I am using two of her photos pay tribute to our teachers and seniors who have gone before us....

Miss Hii and Miss Wong Hie Ding had contributed to the mental and academic development of thousands of students they taught selflessly throughout their life in Sibu Methodist School. They were "angels in cheongsam" (My school magazine essay).

Mrs. Deng has taught chemistry in all three languages - Chinese England and then Bahasa....Fantastic for a China born lady. She could have been one of the earliest research scientists in China but she chose to come to Sibu and to be a teacher.

I will write about Mr. William Hsu in another post.

Here's the "blast from the past" in the words of Ann Chin (New Zealand):.....

Seated on the front row : Miss Hii Siew Ding - Miss Wong Hie Ding - Mrs. Deng Yuk Chi - Mr. John Chan
The banner reads : Sibu Methodist School Senior Middle Three 1953-55 Same Class Mates
