Lasallian Expedition & Development Camp 2011

The boys who will be attending the camp coming Friday.
It is time of the year again to see 25 enthusiastic Form Two boys embark on a journey to Kuala Kangsar to take part in the Lasallian Expedition and Development Camp at Ulu Kenas Forest Reserve, some 20 km from the royal town. Preparations started five weeks ago with the school identifying the students, interviewing them for suitability, obtaining their particulars and getting their parents' consent. After that, approval has to be obtained from the Education Department. Nevertheless, it was worth the effort.
LEAD was the result from an initiative by the Malaysian delegation who participated in Asia Pacific Lasallian Youth Convention 6 (Sydney) 2001 where they hatched the idea from the Australian delegation.
The first LEAD in Malaysia was held in June 2002. It is an outdoor adventure camp for 3 days, 2 nights, catering for students from specific Lasallian schools. It is a team-building, self-development and character-building program. Our trip this year starts Friday, 8 July to Sunday 10 July 2011.
St Michael's would like to put on record a word of appreciation to the Chairman of public-listed company, Riverview Rubber Estates Berhad, Ms Juliana Manohari Devadason and Executive Director Mr Adrian Tsen for making the camp possible for the boys.
