SMI won the top prize of RM3,000, a position that had greatly boosted the confidence and motivation of our boys. They also clinched the prestigious "Best Drum Major" award, a double joy for the boys and the entire school community.
We congratulate the Drum Major who received the RM500 prize. His constant encouragement and inspiring words to his charges have resulted in a very sweet victory.
Master Jeffery Chan, the band leader said humbly: First of all , congratulations to my fellow band members who had indeed done a splendid job on that particular day. My greatest gratitude is to our instructor, Sir Lee Mun Ming for leading the band. It has finally achieved success. But, as Michaelians, I believe that the reason for us joining the competition is not just for the medal and cash prize. I believe that there are more things more worthy than just winning. Instead, the brotherhood between members and the Michaelian spirit is well-demonstrated and I believe it'll continue burning in us Michaelians.
Well, I believe that the members of MMB are very proud now but just one phrase to conclude everything. "Don't let your ego conquers you". I believe that this victory would bring forth the Michaelian Military Band towards a journey which everyone will never forget and I believe glory won't end here. We'll continue to do the best we can and although at times we might have problems but with the unity we have, I believe that nothing is unachievable by us Michaelians...
Thank you, boys.
