Penang Free School is a secondary school located on Green Lane (officially Jalan Masjid Negeri), George Town, Penang, Malaysia. Penang Free School is the first English-medium school in Southeast Asia, and is the oldest recorded school in the country. Alumni are known as “Old Frees”. There is a history of rivalry with St. Xavier’s Institution, another of Penang’s premier schools, which also claims to be Malaysia’s oldest school.

History

The school was founded by Rev. Robert Sparke Hutchings on 21 October 1816, on the island of Penang, Malaya. Its first headmaster was Mr. William Cox 1816-1821. Its premises on Farquhar Street first housed the Hutchings School, but is now the Penang State Museum and Art Gallery. In 1928, the school moved to its current location on Green Lane(officially Jalan Masjid Negeri). The school hosted the first communist cell ever to penetrate a Malayan school. Several of the schoolmasters were socialist in outlook and encouraged the formation of the cell, which produced a cadre of communist leaders who made their careers in China. The communist cell was suppressed in the late 1930s.

The school received cluster school status from the Malaysian Ministry of Education in 2007.

Developing Your Eye, Day Nine: “A Pop of Color”

 

In photography, I love colours – more and vivid the better the feeling. I have a general reluctance of monochrome or black/white prints. We progress from Black and White photography towards Colour Photography so why we have to regress ourselves back to monochrome with artistic feel as the primary reason. I ask a simple question to those who prefer monchrome – Do you watch your TV in Black and White or in Colours ? The ansawer is obvious as most or maybe all Black and White Televisions are now defunct. Well, I rest my case.

My submission is the colourful ferries of Penang.

Day Nine: “A Pop of Color” — Incorporate Color

The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something beautiful and intriguing, and can tell a tale within the frame.

In this image of a door in Malta, the two shades of blue brighten an otherwise nondescript scene, and also add layers of story and perspective: Who lives in this building? What’s behind that door?

The PFS 1964 – 1970 Class Reunion Cruise in photos are uploaded here.
Here is the written commentary from one of our classmates Anver Hussain Maricar which rightfully summarized the event:-

“Hi All

It was a wonderful evening with the end tinged with a bit of sorrow at the loss of a classmate/schoolmate. It was well that Hock Eng held back the sad news to the end as otherwise it would have dampened the spirit of the participants to a well organised, synchronised rocking party on the sea. Our deep felt condolences to the family of Sarvan Singh

Coming back to the party, everyone present there enjoyed the camaraderie, the feeling of oneness and the atmosphere charged with excitement at the prospect of a once in a life time experience. The added bonus was the cherished Old Frees Friendship that has lasted 48 years and still going strong and in fact growing stronger by the looks of it. Certainly rare for a group of people so diversified in their background, life styles, social status and outlooks and yet so united in cherishing a relationship wholeheartedly and unreservedly. Amazing but true. Worthy material for a potential doctorate thesis. Any takers?

All of us will agree, without a second thought, that the man behind this rarity is Hock Eng who initiated the PFSnet, nurtured and nourished it with his constant prodding and by organising as many gatherings as possible and bringing in different sets of people together to culminate in the grand union in October 2012 which will hopefully lead to many more reunions. Despite Hock Eng being the rock that has been holding this group together, it is important that everyone in the group does his or her part by supporting his initiatives and participating in them. He alone can only do so much and within his capacity. I know logistics and personal commitments and other circumstances will not always permit everyone to be able to participate all the time. I believe the grandest of reunions will be when all living members of the group get together on one single occasion in the not too distant future. That will be the real crown for Hock Eng!

For now kudos to Hock Eng and team and a big thank you to Ahmad for making this experience possible, not forgetting the generosity of the other sponsors of the event.

Fortis Atquis Fidelis.’
