My Fellow Schoolmates "Dai Lo s"

The playing field was also partly used a burial ground and a dangerous goods or munitions magazine located at the bottom of the school drive. The school did not re-open until September, 1946 or thereabouts after some building renovation, exhumation of human remains and removal of all dangerous goods.
