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?
