At the end i just want to thank you ,you are realy doing a great job.

E.G.C. Your feedback and comments


It is satisfying to see that people who stumble on this page are nostalgic about their days in E.G.C.

  • One person I met recently on an Iftar dinner gathering recognizedmy name when were introduced. He said he had searched on E.G.C on thenet and remembers my name. He jokingly said he followed my footstepsfrom E.G.C. to Canada! What a coincidence.
  • Many visitors were glad that someone had the passion to write about our school, and said they have many memories of the school.
