In our younger days, the Old Paulians’ Association (OPA) was located inside the school compound.
We were invited to the OPA Dinner in 1963 as the top Matriculates from SPHS. U Chan Tun was a key note speaker.
In the early 80’s, the true Paulians took over OPA and held the Saya Pu Zaw Pwe at the Assembly Hall inside the school (now No. 6 Botathaung SHS). The Patrons include Ko Khin Maung Tun (SPHS58) and the ECs include Ko Myo Nyunt (Harry Kyaw, SPHS63). Saya Nge (our class teacher in Std. VIID) had to be carried into the Hall by his former students.
Several years back, I received a DVD from two much younger students in the Bay Area about their SPZ. There were only three sayas from our times — Saya U Ba Myaing, Saya U San Thein and Saya Beatson — in that DVD. Brother Anthony was presumably still alive, while his elder brother Brother (turned Father) Joseph had passed away.
The invitations are per courtesy of U Khin Maung Zaw (SPHS70, EC76), who attended SPHS and 6 Botahtaung.
The banner was e-mailed by Richard Gerald Boudville (Australia), son of Sayama Violet Boudville (our class teacher in Std VD).
