Singapore Schools – Spring 2017 Reunion

                Half yearly reunion Saturday 13th May 2017 at the

                Chandos Public House, Trafalgar Square, LONDON

And this is where you come in!

We are sending this invitation to everyone whose address we have who was at St John’s or any similar Singapore schools around the same time as us and whom it would be nice to meet again.

Please pass this same message on to any of your old friends from Singapore that you would like to meet again, or who might enjoy it even if you won’t be able to make it yourself on the day.

If you are reading this on facebook, or any other site you can do this quite easily by copying and pasting this text into an email or by printing it off and sending it by snail mail.

If you belong to or administer another Facebook Singapore School group (e.g. Changi, Seletar, Bourne etc. please extend this invitation to them.

If you haven’t yet done so please send a brief email to Lynne Copping at to ensure you get full updates on all future reunions wherever we may hold them.

 For those without e-mail there’s always snail-mail or the phone.

If this really takes off we could bring London to a standstill and if it doesn’t we’ll still meet up with the chosen few.

The day will be very loosely planned, having only a beginning and an end, leaving the middle free.

We plan to meet at a pub in London on Saturday 13th May from about 11.30 a.m. where we will again commandeer the comfy seats upstairs. The pub is called the Chandos and it’s in St Martin’s Lane to the northeast corner (top right) of Trafalgar Square between the National Gallery and the Post Office and near the Royal Opera House (nearest Tubes Charing Cross & Leicester Square). If you’re not sure you’ll be recognised, stick a post-it note on your forehead or a luggage label in your buttonhole.

From there you can do whatever takes your fancy. Make arrangements with old friends to take in a gallery or two, go to a matinee, go sightseeing, Covent Garden, Tate Modern, ride the London Eye, shop in Oxford Street, or just plain chill out and chew the fat, which is what everyone chose to do last September.

Meet back at the same pub anytime between 5 and 7pm and if you’re still up for it, walk round the corner into Soho for Chinese nosh in any of several eateries ranging from all you can eat for a tenner and on upwards.

After that the rest of the day’s your own.

If you like the idea tell someone. If you’re going to be there tell someone. If you’re looking for someone, let it be known. Why not add their name to the list? Just maybe someone will know where they are.

There’s none so hard to find as those who don’t know you’re looking for them!

If  this Spring 2017 reunion is as resounding a success as all the previous events, there’s no reason why others couldn’t do the same at other regional centres.

See you there?


Ken, Alan & Phil

Or whoever forwarded this to you.

This Reunion will mark the 15th anniversary of Chandos biennial Reunions (so at least 30 of them). Lost count of all the hundreds of people who have been along over the years. Add this to all the related reunions that have happened everywhere from the wilds of Scotland to Singapore itself and I think we have a winner here. So if you’re in the least bit worried about coming along for the first time......
