Three cheers for ACS Ipoh! Once again, for the third time now, ACS achieved a Malaysian record. This time we worked with nature and produced a record-breaking formation with 31000 plants, from four different species. The formation, which consisted of a huge hibiscus, the letters ‘ACS Ipoh’ and the theme ‘Let’s Green The Earth’, was declared the largest plant formation in Malaysia’s history by Dato’ Dr. R. Subramaniam a/l Rama Naidu, the representative of Malaysia Book of Records on the 29th August 2013 during an official recognition ceremony. We ACSians were proud to have Ipoh Mayor Datuk Roshidi Hashim to officiate the ceremony. Besides the Mayor, all teachers and students were also elated to welcome Tuan Haji Muhamat Roli Bin Haji Hassan, the Director of the Perak State Education Department, Tuan Haji Marazlen @ Mar Azlan Bin Amran, the Kinta Utara District Education Officer, Mr Sri a/l Sankaran, an officer from the Kinta & Kampar Agricultural Department, principals and other guests of honour from the Board of Governors, the ACS Alumni and PTA as well as parents. After the last pot was placed in the formation by the Mayor, all waited with eagerness for the result of the 10-month school project. Just at the moment Dato’ Dr. R. Subramaniam made the announcement that ACS achieved a record, defeaning cheer rose from the crowd on the field. A formation of airplanes which was preparing for the National Day celebration passed by just at that moment as if to celebrate together with all present. It was truly an appropriate ending for that day. To make the day even better, Mr. Rodney Lee from Sunrise Palace Sdn. Bhd. presented a mock cheque of RM12000 for the plants in the formation. He also made the Mayor very happy when he promised to send 5000 plants to the Ipoh Railway Station. At last, Florathon 2013 had ended, but the valuable experience would be cherished in the heart of each and every ACSian throughout time.
