Mr Cheng Ah Laik Bids Farewell to SMI!

St Michael's bade farewell to Mr Cheng Ah Laik, one of its most dedicated and distinguised teachers on Saturday, March 24. Mr Cheng, the head of the technical and vocational studies department, was transferred to St Michael's 16 years ago from SMK Pasir Puteh. He is known among the Michaelian fraternity for his hardworking nature and his constant encouragement to his students. Mr Cheng's passion for teaching had been a powerful inspiration to his colleagues and students.

Michaelians remember him as a teacher of high calibre and had always ensured that they followed his lesson well. His talent is obviously in Additional Maths. For him, all students are able to learn and succeed - which clearly tells of Mr Cheng as a caring and passionate Michaelian.
He said one of the keys to success is to be inquisitive. "That's the element most Michaelians have", he said.
When asked about his retirement plans, Mr Cheng said he was going to take a good rest and spend more time with his family.
Your parting advice to Michaelians, Mr Cheng? H
e replied in five simple words.
"Keep the Michaelian spirit strong".

We wish you a happy and fruitful retirement, Sir.

Your dedication and commitment towards the Additional Maths subject will be remembered for life time. You were hardworking and didnt give up hope to teach, to give exercises, to give advises to the students in the class. You're the best Add Maths teacher who is able produce excellent students. I'm very proud to be your student when i was in Form 4 & 5 four years ago. Eventhough you had retired, but I hope that you'll continue to help and to guide the students in this subject externally.
