Old friends...Brother Vincent shares about St Michael's with Brother David.

General councillor of De La Salle Christian Brothers (Pacific-Asia Region Conference) Brother David Hawke paid a visit to St Michael's Institution and met up with the Principal and her administrators. A brief discussion was later held at the OMA Secretariat. Also present at the simple session were Sector Leader Malaysia Brother Anthony Rogers, Brother Vincent Corkery and Brother Matthew Bay.
The entourage, obviously amazed with the efforts of the school in keeping the Lasallian ethos and tradition alive, also met up with some teachers and students. At the school parlour, Brother David was similarly impressed when he noticed that awards for the "Michaelian of The Year" were presented in honour of the past Superior-General Brother Nicet-Joseph. (Brother Nicet visited SMI in 1962 and the first recipient of "Michaelian of the Year" was accorded to commemorate his visit. Brother Nicet was S-G from 1956-1966).
According to Brother David, St Michael's is the only school which remembers Brother Nicet this way.
Thank you Brother David and Brother Rogers for spending some time with us.      
A warm welcome accorded to our special guests..pix by Bro Matt.
