The La Salle Brothers were congregating  in Malacca for a retreat recently. They were invited to St Francis' Institution, Malacca for a gathering with the teachers and students.

A familiarisation program on PISA (Programme International For Student Assessment) for teachers was held recently at the computer room. 
Students doing their parts in making a project organised by the MCO a success. Its members planned to visit an old folks home in Housing Trust and boys were parting with their pocket money - in line with the La Sallian spirit of remembering the last, the lost and the least!

We gather in solidarity every morning for announcement. Sometimes, a bit of reminder, doses of advice and singing of the school rally. That's who we are! 

Giving a talk on La Sallian tradition and values during a program on Character building.

Talentime posters have adorned many prominent parts of  the school. The atmosphere is there and students are equally thrilled with the impending event.

A  reason to celebrate - Mr Ravi Chandran (left) currently serves in SMK Seri Kledang and Mr Waran, in SMJK Sam Tet. 
 That's all folks. Till another update which I am not sure when. Thanks for dropping by and best wishes.

SMK St Michael Ipoh Form Three student Chan Seiyu put on a magic performance earlier this week to preview the upcoming Michaelian Talentime showcase in July during the school assembly.
SMK St Michael Ipoh’s emphasis on performing arts will continue its tradition of organising the “Michaelian Talentime” showcase in July.
To be held at its school hall from July 7 to 9 at 7.45pm, the showcase will give students a platform to showcase their various talents and skills.
Principal T. Gunalan said the tradition of performing arts at St Michael started in 1954 with the inaugural stage production of The Poet of Ispaha.
“The annual showcase of performing arts continues faithfully every year.
“St Michael has produced over 50 plays and talent shows, which is a remarkable achievement,” he said in a statement.
Gunalan said the event is a true-Michaelian production.
“The performers, crew, make-up artists and musicians are all from the school.
“As they get together, the volunteers and participants experience self-development, build self-esteem, and learn to express themselfs. They will also learn about organisation and leadership skills, perseverance, self-motivation and self-discipline,” he said.
“It has always been my opinion that students learn critical thinking skills through such platforms and that will stay with them forever,” he added.
Gunalan also said the school will hold a charity performance on July 4 at 7pm.
“We have not forgotten the underprivileged. We have invited some 100 people from the Salvation Army and old folks’ homes.
“We teach students to be committed to doing community service without expecting anything,” he said.
“It is always good to strive for service above self and to uphold our principle of Spirit of Service,” he added.
Tickets will be sold at RM20 and RM50 each.
Gunalan said proceeds from ticket sales and sponsorships would be used for activities to foster curriculum development and to provide a safe and attractive school environment.
