The committee members of Regional Lasallian Education Council were at SGI, Taiping for yet another fruitful meeting. We were at St Anthony's, Teluk Intan last month and two weeks ago, Brother Vincent, Brother Matthew, Mr Harneak and I were at SGI, Taiping. A meeting was held at the OGA office, a stone's throw away from the school and later we adjourned for a dinner at the Meridian Hotel restaurant. Thanks to the old boys for their company and fellowship. The next RLEC meeeting will be in Ipoh on April 14, 2009.
