A fellow blogger wrote about a recent revival prayer meeting at ACS that commemorated what is known as the Clock Tower Revival of 1972, and also on the 80th anniversary of the exact date John Sung arrived in Singapore in 1935, triggering a massive revival among the overseas Chinese. The ACS Clock Tower at Barker Road has been an iconic symbol since the secondary school moved to Barker Road from 1950-1992, after which the campus was vacated briefly when the school went independent and moved to Dover Road in 1992. In 1994, ACS Barker Road was established as a full school, along with ACS Primary which used to be at Coleman Street. In 1999, the original clock tower was rebuilt when the school underwent a major rebuilding and “a replica now stands 20 metres from the old clock tower, with the original clock mechanism installed in the new tower”.1
