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

December 2005 – Mountain Bike Trail

December 2005 – Mountain Bike Trail

We are planning to flag off the first bike trail on 17 Dec 2005, in Bukit Timah, probably last remaining nature reserve and park. Besides the demanding exercise of biking, the forest offers fantastic diversity of flora and fauna. The mountain biking trail around the Reserve’s boundary is about 6 km which takes about 30 minutes to 1 hour to complete; the trail grade is moderate to difficult.
