St. Xavier Institution – night view


A bell that no longer tolls.

I was at St. Xavier a couple of nights ago, waiting to pick my son from his scout’s activities. It so happened that I have my camera with me and remembered one of the blogger, KS Tang who gave me a special mission.

– Show him what the newly renovated toilets look like! –


Don’t worry, I am not posting the photo here. But if any ex-Xaverian wants to see, just post your comment here. I will email the photos for KS Tang when he returns from overseas.

Since it was just a few days after Merdeka, the whole school is still nicely decorated with artworks done by the students. I took photo of these Merdeka cards on the wall plus some old, old photos of the LaSalle brothers.

My kids told me that I am going to capture some LaSalle brothers floating images one of these days! (as in spirits) As you know, they love to tell horror stories at scouts camp.


Green is the school’s official colour. But I think green looks spooky with the shadows. Agree?

    Haven’t been there for quite a while. Was there for 13 years. From standard 1 till Upper 6. The bell if I’m not mistaken is at the sepaktakraw/badminton court. Outside the lower secondary supervisor’s office. Betul? Who’s the principal? Bro Paul Ho? The next time I’m back in Pg, I’ll try to pay a visit. Hope its not the school holiday at that time.

    You are right, the bell is near the court. Bro. Paul is still the guru besar. The school holidays start from beginning Nov. till Jan 2006. Two full months. You can always pop by I think.
