Hello Michaelians!

Hello fellow Michaelians far and near. Time flies. We are coming to the end of June 2015 very soon. Soon the Form Three guys will be sitting for their PT3 and the Form Five, the SPM. The school conducted the mid-year examinations before the holidays started and as usual, teachers spent half of their holidays marking the papers so that when school reopens, students have something to look forward to. 
PT3 English Language papers...for this part, pupils are tested on error corrections. 
St Michael's Institution Ipoh also had its 88th Sports Day last month which was graced by Tan Sri Lee Oi Hian, our chairman of the Board of Governors. The customary class march past by all classes was still on full gear, carrying proudly their creatively-designed class flags bearing the theme, "Harnessing Potential, Nurturing Character". The Sports Day was ever-refreshing and ever-upbeat.
Below are highlights worth mentioning and documenting - only at SMI Ipoh.

Fourth former Eashvar Rajan is champion at the Public Speaking Sultan Perak Enthronement Cup and also the state champion in Public Speaking. He is coached by Mr N. Palaiswaran, SMI teacher.
SMI is the national champion in the Star's NIE video clip contest. This achievement has stirred the interest among Michaelians to have own our version of video clip competition, garnering many entries. The selected clips, which are of high standard, will be featured in August 2015. 
An insight by Brother Charles.
Chanced upon an image taken two years ago - it was musim durian, a season with plenty of mangosteens too. We found a place at the Seni Room to enjoy the fruits which were brought all the way from Kedah by a fellow colleague. Hope that this year we are going to experience a similar harvest. Our tukang buka durian is Cikgu Ibrahim (look at the gloves)   
The blogger took the opportunity to have a break in  Kota Bahru with his family, of course to enjoy the irresistible nasi kerabu, nasi lauk campur and nasi dagang, not forgetting the laksam and pulut durian. This shot was taken from the first floor of Pasar Siti Khatijah using the trusty Samsung S4.  
Teachers' Day celebration at SMI. We thank Brother Vincent, Brother Matthew and the PIBG committee members for gracing the occasion. Their presence made the day even more special and memorable.  
Thank you Michaelians for your strong support all these years. I am compiling a few more pictures to be featured in a day or two. That's all for now.
Cheers and best wishes from me.

Michaelian Spirit is alive at SMI!
