No, we're not talking about the movie ;) We're actually dedicating today's post to a well-known and well-loved educator. I'm sure most of you will recognise him from the photograph. [...]
Here's another photo from Michael Ho's collection. This one was taken on 14th July 1966, during a dinner held in honour of Rev Bro Assistant Superior General. We think this was [...]
Let's see if the Michaelians remember this one (see pictures below): Recognise the costumes? The actors? The title of the play? I only recognise Bro Pius Kelly, standing in the [...]
I'm sure everyone recognises the gentleman seated in the middle. :) Yes, he's none other than Rev Bro Vincent Corkery - of St Michael's Institution. The photograph was part of [...]
picture from Mr & Mrs Rasiah Anakili - click to enlarge We recognise Bro Pius Kelly, who was the 9th Brother Director of St Michael's Institution, seated in the centre. [...]
We were told that Anderson School once put up this play. Well, so did St Michael's Institution. We present to you the cast of 'Lady Precious Stream' - back in [...]
Ladies and Gentlemen, we present to you the 1969 cast of 'My Fair Lady' - a Michaelian Production of course ;) Did any of you catch this play? Give us [...]
First an SMI Sports Team, but who, which team and when? And next another SMI Class but that is all we know. What we really need here on ipohWorld is [...]
Photograph E. Yes, we need help again please, but this one is quite different, a sports team and trophies but who, when and where? Photograph F. And now another class [...]
MI You may have noticed two comments and a Chatterbox entry from a new reader Yip Chee Whye (Chee Whye Yip) who is looking to find his old school friends [...]
Here's a lovely coloured postcard of St Michael's Institution. Care to guess the date of this picture? Needless to say, those palm trees aren't there anymore....and the space behind the [...]
After 'reuniting' those from ACS, Anderson and NTPS Pasir Puteh......we're now calling out to the "Sons of St Michael's Institution " ! Here we have Std. 6 D, all the way from [...]
Nobody could tell us about an earlier Ipoh band - The Red Crane, but this might be easier. Known as "Unit 6-2" they are from left to right, Richard, Aziz, [...]
With a little prompting from Ignatius Chiew, we've decided to publish this class photograph from one of Ipoh's famous boys' school - St Michael's Institution. Again, we are not too [...]
This picture was taken inside an SMI classroom in 1966. It's clearly marked Standard 5. Also pencilled faintly on the back is David Yee and Soon Yit Tan. We believe [...]
Upgrade and renovation of fine building need to be tastefully done (architecturally) example the Ipoh High Court, Extension to St Michael school. Tent structure extension to the Ipoh railway station [...]
“Perseverance is the key to success”. This is the motto that drives the poor dulang washer on the performance of her work. It is obvious to the meanest intellect that [...]
This came with a batch of SMI photos. but without any information. Where is the pool? Who are the boys and who is the European lady with their trainer? Can [...]
This young man looks like the lone swimmer and scout pictured in December that it is suggested could be Dr. Lim Cho Luan. Does anyone have a contact for him or [...]
Surely there must be someone out there who knows about the old SMI scouts! Please help if you can.
This came in the same batch of pics as a lot of SMI. Where did they go camping and who can you recognise please?
Another SMI group, but I don't think we have seen this Brother in earlier photos, or have we? Again there are some Scouts here, but so far we have not managed [...]
This photo has suffered badly from mishandling, probably by a young child as it has crayon scribbles all over the reverse. Nonetheless it is still clear enough for someone out [...]
This little photo is originally just 2 inches square. The girls costumes (or were they called 'bathing suits' in those days) are very interesting. Would today's young ladies like the [...]
Written on the back of this is "That's my guitar, Victor". Who are they and Victor who?
Now we are back in trouble with only the trees as background and no date, group title or names. I know someone out there can help. Please do.
Again not too much of a test as all we need is the names!
This is an easy one as we know where and when, but how about the names? Brothers, Masters or students would all be welcome.
I think we are now quite clear that this is at Tanjung Rambutan, but when was it and who are they? Could they be Scouts from SMI? Please try and recognise [...]
I have just noticed that pencilled lightly on the back of this one is July 1963. Sitting to the left of the brother (as we look at it) with glasses is [...]
Again we would love to know when this photo was taken, the class or group and the names of the brother, the teachers and any of the students please.
Does anyone know where and when this was taken and who is in the picture? Maybe the building behind or the shape of the school badge might help. Please leave [...]
Another SMI Group, but when, what and who? Please help by letting us know about any details you may have about this picture.
Probably from SMI, like the others below, this young man poses for his photograph. But who is he and when was the picture taken? If you know the answer, please [...]
If we guess correctly this is a student from SMI swimming team and a very successful one too! But who is he and when was this taken. Someone out there [...]
But who are they and when was the photo taken? Can anyone help us fill in these details please?
Another SMI photo we need help with. Can you tell us when this was and who is in the picture please?
Here is a group photo from St Michael's Institution. Does any one recognise the people and can you date it for us please?
