Officiating Of Brother Ultan Paul Memorial 27 Sept 2008

The last committee meeting for the opening of the SMI primary school was over just three hours ago. We have invited some 250 donors, benefactors, past principals and former teachers to come witness the unveiling of the plaque by Brother Vincent Corkery. Performances by the Michaelian Military Band and the Michaelian Chinese Orchestra are in the pipeline. Yes, we are having a lion dance to welcome the guest of honour. The troupe is not being hired from outside. SMI has its own troupe now. The members are an energetic and vibrant lot, able to whip out beautiful steps to awe the audience. This is one grand occasion handled collaboratively by the OMA and the three SMIs. The Lasallian fraternity has always advocating the spirit of shared responsibilities. The primary school block has been beautifully spruced up to welcome the historical day. We have taken some shots for you and the next report will elaborately touch on the whole event which I personally anticipate with excitement and enthusiasm.

Thank you, Mr Adrian (OMA), Mr Phoon(SMI), Mr Lee (PTA) and the committee members for materializing something worth remembering. Salute to all of you.
The next grand project, I believe, would be St Michael's Centennial Celebration in 2012.
Signing off,
Peter Khiew

May we old students come to witness the officiating as well? If we may, perhaps you could update us on the date, time and venue of the officiating, please, Mr. Khiew?

Gosh, I really miss the old primary school building! I was there from 1995 till 2000. Too bad I didn't get to visit the vicinity before it was demolished.

Anyway, the new primary building looks great! Will certainly visit when I come back to Ipoh!
