Kingswood High School, Kalaw, Southern Shan State, Myanmar


I wish to send my heartfelt thanks and regards to Ko Harry Min and Daw Win Kyi @ Dr Seinn2 Min

Thanks a lot,  Ko Harry Min and his parent, my childhood friend Daw Win Kyi @ Dr Seinn2 Min.

You all have given me the best presents of my life, copies of our school magazines which are more than 52 years old. I could not describe how much I am happy and thankful to Ko Harry Min (Singapore) and his parents in Pyinmana, Myanmar.

In these 2 edition of Kingswood Star and magazines I got the pictures of my friends, teachers, head masters, school buildings, pictures of my two brothers and my oldest essay about my class printed in the magazine when I was at the fourth standard.

After 5th Standard examination, I left Kingswood High School Kalaw and never met or heard any news about my childhood friends. I wrongly thought that I am the only person who missed my childhood friends and old school. But my friends proved that I am wrong. They have not only kept these memoirs in good shape for more than 50 yrs but still care to send the copies to me, the old friend.

I wish to send my heartfelt thanks and regards to all of you.

My Friend Lu Ye Chun Daw Than Than Nu had updated the latest picture of our school, now Kalaw GTI on her FB.

Dear Ko Gyi,
Luckily I took some pictures of Kalaw GTI just to show my youngest brother who is now working in L.A for his nostalgic feeling.

        KKG: I saw the 1960-61 issue of Kingswood Star but not the 1959-60, the one I am looking for. Please post it, especially the dedication page with my picture. I would like to hear from alumni who remember me, particularly Khin Than Htay, the dancer, Linda Shaw, Sandro Lay Thant, James Ko Ko, Ernie Singh, Nyunt Shwe, and more. Thank you for doing this to connect old schoolmates and friends.
