Walking Down Memory Lane


July 2006 -- After more than 20 years, Michael Fernando (third from left) returned to his alma mater, recalling such sweet memories he had when he was here from Standard One until 1982, when he left to further his studies in Universiti Malaya.
An accountant at a well-established company in Seri Iskandar, Fernando remembers vividly how the Brothers and his teachers instilled sound discipline in the students and how they responded with open hearts. Through them, he said, how characters were developed and how they viewed life in a more positive perspectives. Brother Ultan Paul was the director then.

Graham Katz, from Berlin, Germany, was an exchange student under the AFS programme who was here between 1981 and 1982 for his Form Six. He was a great athletic, spending most of his time on the school field and the Ipoh Padang.

"Nothing has changed much. The majestic and grand building of St Michael's still stands proudly, reflecting the spirit and charisma of the LaSalle heritage". Katz remembers one feature of the school and had an impact of him when he was here -- the Science laboratory, which he described as unique, outstanding and cosy.

Fernando's daughter is Laura, is a Year Five pupil in Marian Convent.
Taking them around the school was teacher Brindes Lawrence, an adviser of the Michaelian Catholic Society.

Note: Old Michaelians are encouraged to visit our alma mater as I believe bonding and networking with the current administrators and teachers must go on to solidify our LaSallian roots.
