A PIECE OF GOOD NEWS COMES 2011

The Centennial Celebrations committee discussed the matter at length. As we are moving towards the 100th year celebrations, everyone feels strongly that the chapel is taking its role as one of the integral parts of the highlight. This prized heritage has been around for decades and it is time all of us rally together to see that the chapel opens its doors again. Currently, it is not accessible to anyone as some repair works had to be carried out first.
Concerned Michaelians have long voiced their support in `revitalizing' the chapel so that we can see the glorious days when students streamed into the chapel to sing songs of worship and occasionally listen to words of wisdom. For others, a stroll inside would be an excellent balm for tired souls or just to reminisce those moments they had in this great institution. No matter what's the reason, the chapel must be allowed to continue its glitters.

Michaelians can make their cheques out to:

SMI DEVELOPMENT FUND

and send them to:

OLD MICHAELIANS ASSOCIATION

For acknowledgment purposes, I will post all names of contributors and the amount contributed on this blog. Best wishes and regards from us at St Michael's.

Signing off,
