More than eight hundred former Michaelian’s gathered in the basketball court on the grounds of their Alma Mater to usher in the 2nd Century of St Michael’s Institution (SMI). The school had celebrated its 100th years of its founding last year. Hence the theme for the night was ‘The Beginning of a New Century…the end of an Era’.
As is tradition, the annual dinner of the Old Michaelian Association (OMA) is held on the last Saturday of September each year. OMA President Adrian Tsen in his address welcomed the former students “to another evening of Michaelian fellowship”.
This year there were 90 recipients for the school’s jubilee certificates. SMI Principal Madam Loh Wei Seng was one of them, having left the school 40 years ago. All recipients after receiving their certificates from Dato Bro Vincent Corkery fondly sang their school song with gusto in true Michaelian spirit of fellowship.
