English Tea @ Delicious, St. Mary's Residence
"I serve" - this the motto of my school- St. Mary Secondary School.
This was a missionary school and the earlier headmistresses were mainly from United Kingdom. The school celebrated its 100 years anniversary last year - so what a pity when the building were torn down to make way for this new block of condominiums now known as St Mary Residence. Sometimes I felt that the old heritage buildings in the country are not being well preserved and protected! There is so much history and architecture in these buildings.My 3 sisters and me have studied here and also one of my nieces too!
How many footprints have I and my sisters left along these corridors. The classrooms were on the right. We could often hear the teacher screaming next door during classes! The balcony overlooked to a large field where we had our sports annually. Sometimes our attention did wandered as we gazed at the trees swaying lazily outside and the teacher was being boring!
The school concerts and the weekly assemblies were held at The Assembly Hall. I can remembered the stage plays that I had participated - Lochinvar, no not as young Lochinvar, but one of the Scottish dancers only and also Tom Sayer and Huckleberry Finn- again one of the young scoundrels! That's why my dreams of being a performer never take off...hahahah.
But what I remember most were those early morning chapel service lead by the headmistress in the hall. Quiet, peaceful and comforting- always a good way to start the day.
Well, so much for the old school, the new school is now located in Selayang and there are more photos over there, should you be interested to know more about the school.
