SMI Speech Day 2007

"ENTER TO LEARN, LEAVE TO SERVE" - a mission to maximize the achievement of all Michaelians and to empower them to become useful and productive citizens.

That theme was the centerpiece of the speech delivered by Brother Visitor Thomas Lavin at the school Speech Day, which was attended by some 60 parents and 80 prize recipients last Thursday.

"As a Lasallian school, we have an obligation to make a difference in each student's life so that when they leave school they will serve others graciously and lovingly," he said to the applause of those attended, included members of the Board of Governors, headed by Dato' Seri Lee Oi Hian, OMA and PTA committee members.
Principal Mr Phoon Chong Chee also had an advice for Michaelians. He stressed the importance of the three ideals every Michaelian must adhere to - Faith, Zeal and Community.
Perhaps, the theme, " Enter To Learn, Leave To Serve" should be chosen as SMI theme come 2008. Agree? Do let us know at peterkhiew@gmail.com
