Proposed New School Hall

Do you remember the school assembly days at the open air space facing Repok Road? Then the school principal addressed the students by standing on a school desk. Have you ever wondered who was the unfortunate kid that had to use the desk after that? Have you ever had al fresco extra curricular activities cancelled because of the fierce heat or tropical rain?
Fret not, now there's a proposed double-storey school hall to be constructed at the empty space at the back facing the kampung (village). St Anthony's School buildings have always depended on private donations because the school is not 100% funded by the government. Do you recall those tedious walkatons and donation forms that you had to pass around your relatives for RM$1, $2, $5 and $10 donations?
Remember that none of us has actually paid for the full cost of our education. We have benefitted from contributions from previous years - whether from private or public funds. I had to go on the recycled school textbooks scheme in primary school. It was not the nicest feeling to use old books when my classmates were using new ones but I was grateful for the assistance rendered.
Can someone inform St Anthony's School staff that the donation form has disappeared from the sendspace.com download page. I will also write to the school email address. Once I have it, I will update this here. Meanwhile, for donations, please contact

I know ex-Anthonians can find their way to school even if blindfolded but how many of you know the email address and P. O. Box after all these years? C'mon, take a lie detecor test!
