 A MONTFORTIAN GIANT

The school flag has been flown at half-mask for the last two days and there is a condolence book placed outside the general office for students to pen their thoughts and condolence. There was also a minute of silence observed by students and staff.

A photo exhibition has been set up, which features the life of Bro Andrew, and his contribution to Montfort. You should really read what the boys have written about Bro Andrew even though they have not met him. It was through the eulogy yesterday that they came to know him and what he stands for, “A MONTFORTIAN GIANT”

I wish to invite you to the school anytime today or tomorrow to view the exhibits and sign the condolence book. Can you mass mail out to all former Montfortians who may want to sign the condolence book? We intend to send the book to his family through the Bros of St Gabriel.

THE BOXER

I chronicled what happened in the school. So, the article and some information on him can be found at www.montfortschool.blogspot.com

Tor Cher, Edmund and I did the morning eulogy, which lasted for about half an hour.

We held a farewell concert in the hall on the day itself. The band performed and Mr Simen and myself played “The Boxer” and “Listen to the Falling Rain” to signify the heavens crying.

Very meaningful stuff we did. The boys learnt some meaningful history and heritage that day. You could smell it in the air and sense it through their expressions.

Dear Sir/Madam

The St. Gabriel’s Foundation Charity Golf

(In Aid of the St. Gabriel’s Foundation Endowment Fund)

In the year 1916, the first school in Singapore under the Congregation of the Brothers of St. Gabriel was established. With great missionary zeal and vision, the Brothers went on to establish a number of other Gabrielite schools and educational institutions imparting quality and well rounded education to the children of Singapore. Quote from the National Archives: “They had a whole tradition behind them. They had good results and they had a good reputation. They catered for the rural people who were much simpler…..”

In 2001, the St. Gabriel’s Foundation was established to own and manage the schools and institutions that were formerly under the Brothers. The beneficiaries of the Foundation are:

Assumption English School
Assumption Vocational Institute
Boys’ Town Home
Montfort Junior School
Montfort Secondary School
Montfort Centre
St. Gabriel’s Primary School
St. Gabriel’s Secondary School

The Foundation has embarked on a fund raising project to set up an Endowment Fund. The income proceeds of the Fund will be used to provide assistance to needy students of the Gabrielite schools by way of tuck-shop pocket money and professional counseling. Please open your hearts to the less fortunate children whose wants are few and simple but whose needs are great. The plight and difficulties of such children from low –income families deserve our special assistance and support.

As part of the fund-raising efforts, the Foundation is also organizing a charity golf tournament to be played at the Raffles Country Club, Lake Course on 31st March 2006. Mr. Lim Boon Heng, Minister, Prime Minister’s Office has kindly consented to be the Patron and Guest-of-Honor of this event. We hope you will give us your full-hearted and generous support by taking part in the tournament and contributing to a good cause.

Every gift, large or small will be most appreciated, and will go a long way to help our efforts to alleviate the hardships of those in need.

The St. Gabriel’s Foundation is an approved charitable institution of public character and donations to the Foundation are tax deductible.

Thank You for Your Kind Generosity.

 

Yours sincerely,
Ronald Tan
Secretary, Organising Committee
