Asrama Bintang Remembered!

The Old Michaelians' Association will visit the residents of Asrama Bintang on Thursday 18 June, 2009 at 7pm.
Known 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.

The home, began in 1914, provides for the residents basic education, artwork, drawing, house chores, gardening, craftwork and pet rearing.
The get-together and dinner has been an annual affair for the old boys, in line with the Lasallian ideal of service to the community.

The current number of inmates stand at 23. There are 3 sisters and 3 staff manning the home now. Sister Henrietta is person in charge. Mr Adrian Tsen, OMA president, is the benefactor of Asrama Bintang.
