Upper Six Science (Hong) – USSH 1976
There were two Upper Six classes in 1976. One is for Maths and the other for Biology/Chemistry. Rather than naming USS1 and USS2 (because we were equally intelligent!), the classes were called based on our form teacher who were Mr. Chin and Mr. Hong. Thus one is called USSC and the other USSH.
I was in the later. The photo above is a different one from the one appeared in our “Perdana 1976” school magazine. The one above is taken with all the teachers that taught the various subjects for our class.
Above from L-R (seated): Zainuddin Abdullah (George Dewa), Baharuddin Abd. Manan, Ms. Remadevi Menon, Ms. Tay Guet Pooi, Zainun Idris (monitor), Mr. Hong Heng Kin, Mr. Chin Hoon Wen, Mrs. Wee Beng Tang, A. Karim Omar (me), Lee Chong Seong.
Standing (L-R): Wan Kamaruddin, Ong See Yean, Nik Mohd Ghani, Rohana, Nadirah Ngah, Yam Fong Kim, Tan Chong Bee, Mariah, Ma Suat Sian, Lau Bee Ngo, Halimah, Hood Othman, Muhammad, Chong Siew Sek, Musa Embong.
I have not met most of those in the picture especially the girls (ladies) – and definitely not able to recognise them anymore without proper introduction (recalling rather). That happened a couple of years ago when I was at the Ministry of Health and passed by a lady who suddenly said “do I know you from somewhere?” We then started recalling various work places and then whether it was at the university – no, she was from University Malaya and I was from Universiti Pertanian (UPM). Which does not make sense then.
Then we go back to the school we were. That is where we were together in the sixth form. She was Wan Mahani Wan Ismail from Upper Six Arts 1.
Try and guess the names of those in the photo below which was scanned from the school magazine using the clue from the above photo and names given earlier. I wonder why were Nik Ghani dan myself looking somewhere else!
Check out again tomorrow for “The HSC 1976 Batch” posting – class photo of all the four Upper Six classes.
