 About the Site

The Aden College Alumni website was the brain child of two College Alumni. It was inaugurated and established in May 2009 by  Dr. Abdulla Al Sayyari, an alumnus enthusiast.

Its purpose is :

  • To identify and locate all Aden College ex-students and ex- teachers who attended or taught, studied or graduated from the college regardless of their race, language, background, religion,  ethnicity and personal opinions or beliefs;
  • To acquaint Aden College Alumni and future student generations with the history of Aden and education during the British colonial rule since 1839-1967;
  • To create and maintain a chain of  friendly alumni/teachers network of contacts  via the web;
  • To promote ties and understanding between College Alumni and the future generations of Aden-Yemeni students;
  • To promote learning and knowledge, exchange ideas and  expose future student generations to educational, cultural and social experiences and skills of past College alumni;
  • To forbid publishing materials in the website which are considered offensive and abusive and/or promoting hatred and discrimination against alumni or their close families;
  • To establish a Student Alumni Association to follow-up and update information and events pertaining to Aden College alumni activities;
  • To nominate and select venues, through consensus, for College Alumni reunions whenever convenient, affordable and possible.

This site is a non-profitable web site. Its sole purpose is to disseminate information about the Colony of Aden, Aden College and its graduates.

The site expresses its gratitude and appreciation to Mr. Peter Pickering of Western Australia, webmaster of  and his  historian colleague Mr.Ingleby Jefferson for the wealth of  information published about Aden.

It also extends its gratitude and thanks to all College alumni who supported the site by sending materials and pictures.

It is a great honour to be part of our beloved city Aden in which  such a College was located and an educational system inaugurated which prepared alumni such as yourselves, of whom any city would be proud of.

This site is also in commemoration of those College alumni, principals  and teachers and other support staff who are no longer with us today. It's a way of remembering them. May Allah have mercy on their souls.

Contributions are welcomed and the site is opened to all who have an interest in Aden College and its educational system.

It is hoped that you will join and support Aden College Association.

The website is periodically updated.
