Pictures tell a thousand words again! St Michael's very own Michaelian Military Band captured the limelight at the Perak School Band Competition 2009 when it emerged first runner-up, still a coveted and prestigious honour as we were able to beat five other teams from the state. Prior to the final leg, St Michael's bandsmen were able to qualify themselves by thrashing more than eight other schools to eventually impress the judges for a place in the finals.
It was on Friday's evening (24 July 2009) that hundreds of faithful and highly-spirited Michaelians (old and present) virtually rocked the Perak Stadium with their thunderous cheers and shouts of "SMI,SMI", "GREEN & WHITE" and the powerful singing of the SCHOOL RALLY.
Eye-catching banners were hung proudly at the terrace, with our boys turning up at the stadium with green shirts, caps and various apparels. Looking at the huge turnouts, which also included parents, I must put on record here a big thank you. It was a sight filled with great pride and honour.
As we congratulate Sam Tet for being first and Nan Hwa third, St Michael's went home that evening with a contented heart. Why? Because we had fought valiantly until the end.
Big bows to the boys and well done.
Thank you old Michaelian Lee Kam Wah for the video.
