This afternoon saw members of the PTA gathered at the meeting room to discuss the impending Canteen cum Information Day 2011 to be held at the school premises on the 30th July 2011 from 8am to 2pm. The meeting saw many fruitful ideas being put forward and proposed for the benefits of all. The main purpose of the Canteen Day is to raise funds for putting a roof over the assembly area so that more activities can be carried out in comfort and not at the mercy of the elements such as hot sun and rain as the school sorely lacks a hall. Hopefully all students and parents will come forward to make this event a success. Tickets will be on sale soon. Photos showing the event.

4th of June 2011 will always be remembered by ex-student Banurega as it was her wedding to Mr. Kesavan. The wedding reception was held at College general in Tanjung Bungah. It was an elaborate wedding dinner with live singers to entertain the crowd. To Banurega and Kesavan, we wish you a happy marriage, a marriage filled with warmth, love and happiness. Here's a poem dedicated to both of you.

"Among the finest things in life, a good marriage is the most satisfying and rewarding, the deepest and best of pleasures. That blessed relationship uplifts, enriches, encourages and strengthens both husband and wife. A loving marriage overcomes any obstacles the world may put in its way, strengthening the special marital bond with every challenge conquered. Your wedding is the start of something better than you can imagine. May your marriage be all that you dream of and more."
