It is said rain brings forth tremendous blesssings to man. This rings true for the community of St Michael's Institution when the visit by its old boys was greeted not only by the sounds of cymbals and drums by the members of the Michaelian Military Band but by a slight drizzle which brought along drops of good tidings to the alma mater.

Led by the president of OMA KL Alumni, Dr Chin, some 24 members walked down memory lane together with their spouses and children. Many had not stepped into the school compound ever since they left school 30 years ago. The atmosphere generated by the students in the classsrooms brought back sweet and gratifying feelings, taking them back to the era when they were in school. Many were seen sharing with their children the places and experiences they encountered during their student days.

The old boys also contributed a sum of RM100,000 towards the St Michael's primary school building, a noble and heart-warming gesture which had definitely won our accolade and salutation.

After spending some two hours with the present student leaders, inspiring them on the challenges ahead, they proceeded to meet the present and past teachers.

The dinner, in its 68th years, held at the Red Crescent Hall, was a tremendous success. It was attended by some 600 old boys who testified that the reunion was not merely about food and drinks but more to rekindling of friendship and strengtening the human bonding.
