An Email Reply From Master Noel Oliveiro!

An earlier story....

"Come on. Admit it. You are still a hockey legend", Mr K. Balasubramaniam, former SMI principal (Jan 16, 1992 - Sept 30, 1994) seems to say to Master Noel Oliveiro, who produced hockey greats like Foo Keat Seong, Charles David and Mohd Hadi. After much persuasion by current principal Mr Phoon Chong Chee, Noel said, "I need at least two dozen of hockey balls and get the hockey turf booked at least twice a week". That means, Noel will be back to coach our boys. I believe his response will generate great excitement among Michaelians far and near.

The glorious days of hockey in St Michael's are set to make a comeback.

And this is a reply from hockey maestro Noel Oliveiro.....

Thanks Peter.
Where hockey is concerned, I would like to start with the Form Ones. We just cannot produce champions over night.
What I used to do before was to organise a 6-A-Side inter-class competition with the Form Ones on a Saturday morning. You will be surprised to see hidden talents being unearthed from this exercise.
So get things going and I'll be around to lend a helping hand.
Once a Michaelian Always a Michaelian!!!
