After two years of search and networking through the Internet, about 250 former students of PFS Class of 69 (Form Five) and 71 (Form Six), their spouses, children meet up at a dinner. It was an emotional and tearful reunion after 30  years for the former PFS pupils, some having travelled from Australia, Canada, China, Britain, the United States and Singapore.

About 20 of their teachers and headmaster were special guests at the dinner on 23rd December 2002 in E & O hotel, Penang.

Those present observed a minute’s silence as a mark of of respect for five former classmates who had passed away.

A hat was passed around to collect RM 6402 for the Penang Hospice.

The reunion dinner organising chairman, Ow Keam Chong, said:"While we are fortunate to be in good health to meet and enjoy ourselves, we also remember our beloved schoolmates and the ill. "

"We hope everyone here will be well to meet for another reunion in 2007."

He said the organising committee had started planning the reunion two years ago by running a search of the PFS registry and networking through telephone and the Internet.

The buffet dinner at the hotel was followed by dance when Australian based professional singer Fred Cheah, also a former PFS student, made a special appearance, singing Have I told you lately that I love you and Only you.
