Pavilion Given A Spruce Up


Spirit of Service - boys busy painting the pavilion. 
Many have not realised that the Adrian Tsen Pavilion, located at the right wing of the school block, is a decade old this year. It was officially opened on January 25, 2002 by OMA president Mr Adrian Tsen to mark the 90th anniversary of St Michael's, an occasion witnessed by the then Brother Visitor Brother Peter Foo, Brother Vincent Corkery and the chairman of the Board of Governors Tan Sri Lee Oi Hian. That auspicious day also saw the launching of St Michael's official school ties (this means the current ties worn by our present Michaelians are also a decade old).
The dedication of the pavilion to a notable old boy was to honour the immense contributions and solid dedication of Mr Adrian Tsen to SMI. Its simplicity in design and practicality to students reflect a loving reminder of his attachment and close partnership with the school.
Last week, a group of Form Two students led by En Zulkarnain Daud gave the pavilion a coat of paint. It was tedious but they got the job done perfectly, much to the amazement of the blogger who offered the boys praises and salutations.
With lighting fixed and a brand new look, the pavilion will faithfully serve fellow Michaelians in many, many more years to come.
A love for the alma mater. "Come To Learn, Leave To Serve"
