Yesterday, I had a pleasant surprise when I noticed I had a comment from someone who went to the same school as I did. I had never met her while schooling for she was 11 years my junior but, nevertheless, I felt strangely connected and bonded. The fact that we once shared the same school and the same teachers touched my very soul. Suddenly, images of friends and teachers whom I have not met since the day I left school, some 40 years ago, kept flashing in my mind. The images were so vivid and real that it seemed like only yesterday I bade farewell to Treacher Methodist Girls School (TMGS). How time flies!
Prior to writing this article, I did some homework. I visited TMGS official website and Facebook but I could not find any of my friends from the class of 69 anywhere. Well, it was quite disappointing but my spirits were not dampened by the absence of familiar faces. We were from an era when mobile phones, and computers were non-existent. Our means of communication were restricted to writing letters and talking over the phone. It was not easy to remain connected for 40 years under such circumstances. But as they say, it's never too late. I am optimistic that my friends from the class of 69 will soon make a grand entrance either on Facebook or Twitter or some TMGS related websites.
