90th OPA Annual Reunion Dinner
27 August 2016
Regent Hall Seremban

The Old Paulians’ Association has had to make a very difficult decision to break from tradition and move the 90th OPA Annual Reunion Dinner to the 27th of August 2016. Traditionally held on the 1st Saturday of September each year, the 2016 dinner date has to be moved to ensure that OPA can continue to offer Paulians the best in both venue and food provided by The Regent, Seremban. Unfortunately, The Regent Hall, the grand venue for the 2015 dinner had been booked for 3rd September 2016 two years in advance as September is the auspicious wedding month for the Chinese. Therefore, having offered Paulians a larger grand venue in 2015 that brought together over 1700 Paulians and friends in 2015, OPA felt that it would be a great shame to move to a smaller or inferior venue just to keep to the traditional date.

OPA assures Paulians that the 2017 Reunion dinner will return to the traditional 1st Saturday of September.

OPA President’s speech
90th AGM held on Sunday 27th March 2016 at SK. St. Paul, Seremban

Greetings and a very good morning to one and all. To all my Christian friends and members a very happy Easter. I like to thank everyone who has taken time off this Sunday morning to attend the 90th AGM of the OPA.

On behalf of OPA, I’d like to thank Mr. Santhanasamy Amaladas, the Headmaster of SK. St.Paul, for allowing us to use the school’s meeting room to hold our AGM. Mr. Santhansamy was only recently appointed as headmaster of the St Paul’s Institution primary, taking over from Mdm Wong Mei Peng. Mr. Santhana as he is fondly known, is no stranger to us, being a former Paulian (Class of 1981) as well as a former OPA committee member. We congratulate him on his appointment and wish him well.

How time flies when you are engaged in meaningful activities. I still remember way back in 2011 when I was first elected as President of the OPA taking over the helm from Mr Hilary Sta Maria. Now, this is already my 3rd term in office, and next year 2017 is an election year. It is my hope and aspiration to see more new members stepping forward to serve the Association. As I mentioned last year, this will be my last term as I wish to see a new face as the President. We have many capable members in the present committee and whoever sits there will always get the full support of the entire management committee. We are always a family, and every member is always a team player.

The various activities of the Association are highlighted in the Annual report which has been sent to you earlier together with the notice of the AGM. Rest assured, the Association will continue to serve its members as well as provide support to both the schools either financially or indirectly in terms of human resource and moral support. To date, the OPA sports fund have contributed more than RM400,000 to both schools, whilst the Bro Felix Donohue fund to help needy Form 6 students has contributed about RM140,000. However, the BFD fund has reached a critical level of depletion as we only have about RM15,000 left to carry out our student support activities. We need about RM30,000 a year to help needy Lower 6 and Upper 6 students. Therefore on behalf of the OPA I would like to appeal to members to contribute to top up this fund so that we can continue to support needy Paulians in Form 6.

Meanwhile, the OPA has also extended the scholastic awards to member’s children obtaining straight A’s in the UPSR examination as well. OPA has also embarked on a book loan scheme to help needy students in Form 6 as the cost of Form 6 books are expensive and the students don’t enjoy the free book scheme as provided by the government to other classes

.

As for the Annual statement of accounts, our financial position continues to improve. Last year, we showed a surplus of RM38,575.00 as compared to RM11,819.00 in 2014. This is mainly attributed to the annual dinner which for the first time was held away from hotels at the Regent hall. This greatly reduced our organizing cost.

This year, we shall continue to hold the dinner at Regent hall but with a slight breakaway from tradition. The event will be held on 27th August 2016 rather than on the first Saturday of September.

This year we shall honour two year groups, namely the Class of 1991(25th year) and the Class of 1966(50th year).

The annual games shall be held on the 6th of August, and to commemorate our 90th year celebration, we would probably have it on a larger scale.
On behalf of OPA, I also wish to extend our deepest condolence to Paulians and their families who have lost love ones.

At this juncture, on behalf of OPA, I would like to congratulate Ms Jeyadhevi, former headmistress of St. Paul’s Institution primary on the conferment of the award DBNS which carries the title Dato’ in conjunction with HRH Yang di Pertuan Besar of Negeri Sembilan, Tuanku Mukhriz ibni al Marhum Tuanku Munawir’s birthday celebration, recently.

On behalf of OPA, I would also like to thank the heads of both the primary and secondary schools as well as the PTA and the Boards for their continuous support and cooperation in helping OPA run its various activities.

I also wish to thank the OPA Management committee and our Advisor, Tan Sri Chan Choong Tak for their continuous support over this past year.

David Wee Toh Kiong

Bro. James Macken Memorial
Another moment in Paulian History

The Bro. James Macken Memorial Event held at St. Paul’s Institution primary on 21st April 2012 was a unique event, probably one that has no parallel in the history of SPI. Jointly organised by the Old Paulians’ Association and the Board of Governors of SPI primary and secondary, the event was aimed at remembering Bro. James Macken in SPI, a school to which he gave so much of his life, energy and passion to.
