Welcome to our newly designed MEHSA website.

Dear Alumni of MEHS, Teachers and Friends,
Kenny Teoh photo
Thank you to all who have actively responded and voiced your thoughts on disposition of the MEHSA website. Originally, the MEHSA website was to be lapsed after its present term expires on October 31, 2016 as dwindling input over the past few years seem to indicate a decline of interest in the website. However, since the announcement was posted, there has been a flurry of email activities from many who have voiced their appreciation and gave very strong support in keeping the site active. Based on the overwhelming requests of many who have written in, it is obvious the website is well regarded, serves a purpose supporting the MEHS community, and consequently will be continued.

Thank you all for your expression of support, kind words, and interest in keeping the site going. Special thanks to Myo Thant, M.D. (Michael Tin Hla) who has kindly volunteered and will be contributing his technical expertise and efforts to keeping the site active and to improve the overall system. Please continue to support the site and Michael by actively participating in sharing your MEHS Experiences, Alumni news & Photos for all of us to enjoy.

As a special bonus and benefit of this renewed interest, Cecil Wagstaff wrote in from Australia and shared a historic document – a copy of the first MEHS Alumni Newsletter (MAN, Vol 1) – sent out in 1988 by the original publishers: sister Juliet Teoh Bilinski, Dr. Leo Kyaw Thinn, brother David Teoh, and Ying Ying Thaike. A decade later with emergence of the then nascent world-wide web, the MEHSA.org site was created in February of 1998 in the same spirit and aspirations articulated by MEHS founder and principal Mrs. Logie in her welcoming note, “to link and connect all the dispersed students, staff and friends of the Methodist English High School”.

Almost two decades later, I am glad to report the web-site not only met, but has far exceeded all our collective expectations as evidenced by the many re-connections of classmates, school teachers, rekindling of friendships, and facilitation of subsequent reunions that have taken place in many countries including the UK, USA, Thailand, Burma and Malaysia. The generous sharing of individual memories from days past and photographs has enriched all our collective memories. It has been a very satisfying and rewarding experience for me to have played a small part in reuniting the MEHS community. I feel privileged and honored in being able to be of service, and thank you all for your interest and continued support.

In reflecting about the website and the fellowship we have all enjoyed through becoming reconnected once again, I would like to share the words from one of the songs we learned which is apropos and comes to mind.
Vive l’amour, Vive la compagnie!!

Let every good fellow, now join in our song,
Vive la compagnie!
Success to each other, and pass it along,
Vive la compagnie!

Chorus:
Vive la, vive la,
Vive l’amour.
Vive la, vive la,
Vive l’amour.
Vive l’amour, vive l’amour,
Vive la compagnie!!

A friend on your left, and a friend on your right,
Vive la compagnie!
In love and good fellowship, let us unite,
Vive la compagnie!

Repeat chorus

Now wider and wider, our circle expands,
Vive la compagnie!
We’ll sing to our comrades, in far away lands
Vive la compagnie!

Repeat chorus

With friends all around us, we’ll sing out our song
Vive la compagnie!
We’ll banish our troubles, it won’t take us long
Vive la compagnie!

Repeat chorus

Should time or occasion, compel us to part
Vive la compagnie!
These days shall forever, enliven our heart
Vive la compagnie!

Repeat chorus

Yours truly,
Kenny Teoh
