Another school relic saved!
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.

Residents of the Asrama Bintang Convent of the Infant Jesus, home for the aged, disabled women, felt greatly honoured when they were feted to a buffet dinner recently. OMA committee members, headed by Mr Adrian Tsen, played host to some 35 inmates, treating them to an array of Oriental and Western dishes.

We, Michaelians, celebrate with joy the nation's 50th anniversary.
As funding coordinator, OMA president Mr Adrian Tsen was briefed by the school on the current status of the school drama. Among the items discussed that day were ticket sales, sponsors, promotion and seating arrangements. Director Corrinne Mah said the crew and cast were practising seriously, with musicians working equally hard to ensure three unforgettable evenings of excitement and heart-thumping moments, coming 17, 18 & 19 August 2007.
It was also decided that HERCULES T-shirts can be worn on Wednesdays by students. When the news was announced to them during assembly, it was greeted with cheers and a thunderous applause.
Heard that Saturday RM20 tickets are selling like hot cakes, with news already out that tickets are about to sell out. SMI KL Alumni members have also joined in the excitement by calling up the school and sending enquiries via e-mails. We are serious in raising RM100,000 this year. Possible? "It's possible", said Mr Adrian Tsen.

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.

The company was in business up to the 1960’s and remained a family owned and operated up to its close. Withers was a prolific producer of safes. A distinctive trademark is included on the safe.
