Current Status of the Primary School Block
The entire primary school premises, including the dental clinic, book shop and toilets, are expected to be demolished in three weeks. Works to tear down the blocks, constructed in 1959, will be carried out by the same contractor who built the new primary school block. I was told by Brother Matthew Bay that the huge trees, sandwiched between the two main blocks, will be preserved.
Talking about this, I still remember vividly having my BCG jab under the trees when I was in Year Six in 1975 (SK St Michael One). The nurses came with boxes of bottled solutions, syringes and plenty of cotton. With a few desks and chairs set up neatly by the nurses, we sat there quietly and nervously waiting for our turn to be vaccinated. I have plenty of fond memories there, especially those spent with our fellow Michaelians. We still keep in touch once a year. It's easier now to keep them updated on the school's happenings through this blog.
Do inform your friends about the impending status of the primary school. Get that camera out from your closet and have some snapshots of yourself and the school before the premises are gone. As for our old boys and their families in Kuala Lumpur, consider a journey back to SMI primary. There are still plenty of things to see and appreciate.
