Scenes - Sarikei St Anthony's School 1984

ome readers have wondered why the St. Anthony's School posts were not all done consecutively in one go. Bear in mind that there are readers from other schools that may not relate so well to this school. Having too many consecutive posts can be boring and it's better to leave some for later to jolt your memories when you least expected it. There can be too much of a good thing in one shot.

In 1984, what difference in Sarikei's St Anthony's School could you see after you had stepped inside the fenced compound? More landscaping with ornamental plants and greenery.

The most significant change was the addition of the volleyball court (completed circa 1983) next to the basketball court. Can anyone confirm the year? St Anthony's School has produced some great state and national volleyball players before this court was available. One of the male national players, Ah Chuang, later became a coach to the newer generations.

I wanted to do a plan view of the school during my school magazine year but didn't get to do it. The 1984 school editor, Lam Lai Chee (a regular contributor of pictures to this blog), and the committee did a good job on the map. Kudos!

OK, so your dog ate your homework and you were late because you lost your way without the school map?

Hello Daniel,

It was merely by chance that I came across your blog on Sarikei Time Capsule. Indeed, a job well done!!! I am also one of the Sarikeians who attended SAS and have departed Sarikei years ago. The information and picture posted have brought back many good memories and nostalgia in many ways. I remember all the teachers in SAS and always wonder their whereabouts ------- anyhow, I have passed words around the other Sarikeians over here and surely, we will all be watching out for your next issue.

Thank you

The blogging on St.Anthony is great and I think a lot are looking forward to read and recall back S’kei High and of course not forgetting the Chinese school Ming Lik and also remember another private school somewhere around 3 miles called Kwang Ling?

Dear all,
I'm looking for volunteers or ghost writers for the other schools because I'm not familiar with them. Pictures would be needed as "a picture is worth a thousand words." Nolstalgic anecdotes, history with dates and updates would interest the ex-students and even non students. If you are the shy type, simply send them to me and I will write on your behalf. Look at the Kwang Chieng posts in this blog - I'm not an ex-student but I had contents from my friends and the school's website.

Good job on the SAS! I finished form 5 in 1996, now in Singapore (currently in Perth for training). Missed the chance to do form 6 although its in the pipeline. Cheers!
