Popular local film and TV director Bernard Chauly was here at St Michael's to direct an eight-part series on Sybil Kartigesu, a Second World War heroine, mid-wife and resistance fighter.Michaelian Chauly and his crew were here for three days (from 23 Jan), virtually spending their entire time organising and filming in school and the La Salle Centre, where they resided.

St Michael's was the place Sybil was interrogated and pushed down from the granite staircase. It was reported that Sybil had to go through countless operations as a result of the injuries she sustained.
Remember, "Goodbye Boys", the story of SMI scouts going through an arduous and tedious journey, and in the process they learned humility, friendship and unity? It was the same director who directs this story.We wish Bernard well and hope that the Kartigesu film clinches a top award this year.
The images were taken by Brother Matthew Bay, who always keeps on a look out for something interesting taking place in St Michael's. Thanks Brother for the shots.
