A Treat For Residents of Asrama Bintang

The Old Michaelians' Association will be throwing a dinner for the residents of Asrama Bintang this Friday, July 18, 2008 at 7pm. Registered as "Asrama Bintang Rumah Wanita Cacat Infant Jesus Convent", the home is located at 276 Jalan Sultan Idris Shah. 30000 Ipoh.
It is a residential home for women aged 25 years and above with intellectual, physical and emotional difficulties. It provides basic education, artwork, drawing, house chores, gardening, craftwork, pet rearing and other activities.
All remaining residents are from the Infant Jesus orphanage which began in 1914. No new admission accepted.
The get-together and dinner has been an annual affair for the old boys who just want to mingle and fellowship with the residents, who currently number at 30. The person in charge is Sister Catherine.
