St Michael's Primary One Food and Fun Fair
To generate funds to acquire class furniture and to equip the school with some basic amenities, SMI primary One successfully organised a food and fun fair last Sunday.
The turn-out was tremendous. Stalls selling fried chicken, "rojak pasembur", coconuts, books and even school shoes were swarmed with parents, students and Michaelian supporters from far and near. Car vendors also seized the opportunity to promote their latest machines. Among the hottest stalls that were the haunted corner, pony ride and rojak. St Michael's famous space where decades-old trees stand proudly in between classes was filled with tables and chairs, turning it into a food court.
For many, the food and fun fair came at an appropriate time as the premises are scheduled to be demolished very soon. While the children were filled with excitement with the "choo-choo-train" and cheap comics on sale, old boys who were there felt a tinge of sadness as they anticipated the impending works to tear the building down. Built in 1959 and torn down in 2007, the old faithful has served Michaelians well, producing great and honorable Malaysians.
