Welcome to vioba.com.my

Victoria Institution Old Boys' Association or known as VIOBA was first established in 1922 and at that time, they had to rent a building near the school at Rodger Street and is now located near the school grounds since 1954. The VIOBA clubhouse is occasionally used to hold gatherings and meetings among the old boys. vioba.com.my is the VIOBA official web page. This web page serves VIOBA in achieving its objectives - to promote sports, cultural and social activities amongst it members and render assistance to promote the education of its students.

Year End Message

 

We all have the tendency to review events, achievements and perhaps to think of lost opportunities and what the New Year would bring. At VIOBA we look back to a reasonably good year and look forward to new challenges in 2015. We are issuing a newsletter called Victorious available now in electronic format, feel free to share it with other Victorians. Our relationship with the school is improving. We are now able to use certain school facilities and we are next planning for members to use the swimming pool on weekends. In return we will have to help with the revival of the Swimming and Life Savers Club. Please get in touch if you have ideas on this.

VIOBA & VIOBA Foundation AGM 2014 Report

 

 

Report of the Annual General Meetings of 

Victoria Institution Old Boys’ Association (VIOBA) and

VIOBA Foundation

 

8th June 2014

 

The meeting started at 10am when the quorum was reached. 40 members attended the meeting, a number that was lower than normal as there was no elections for the committee this year as the term for the committee is now 2 years.

The meeting started with a minute’s silence to commemorate Victorians and members who have passed away since the last AGM, notable members include the late Dato’ Jaffar Indot and also Dr. Laporte Khoo.

Minutes of the previous meeting were read out and followed by the President’s Report on the activities held during the year. Events include the Annual Golf Tournament, Daniel Shield Games, Board of Governors’ Luncheon and the Mokhtar Dahari Challenge. The President also reported on outstanding matters such as the land lease and fund-raising.

The Annual Dinner with the theme to “Honour our Victorian Educators and Scholars” will be held on the 23rd August 2014 at the Royale Chulan Mutiara Damansara. Tables are still available for sale.

The Treasurer reported then on the income and expenses for the year. VIOBA is grateful to Tan Sri Francis Yeah for his continuing support of RM100,000 towards the operation needs of VIOBA. Without this donation, VIOBA will not be able to fund its activities.

Finally in the Open Forum, remarks were made by senior members that it is time to consider a VIOBA name change to be less gender specific. It was noted that it shall be a resolution to be tabled and voted on in the next AGM. The land lease issue was also raised and members asked the committee to resolve it expeditiously with the minimum lease renewal payment.

There being no other matters, the meeting was adjourned at 11.15am.

 

Mohktar Dahari Challenge (MDC) 2014

 

It was a gloomy Saturday morning as Victorians gathered at the VI Greens on May 17, 2014 for the biggest edition of the Mokhtar Dahari Challenge Trophy with 39 teams from across the batches. The most senior was 1980 while the most junior was 2008. Together with their supporters and friends, over 500 Victorians of all years came back to school for the ultimate bragging rights of being MDC Champions for the year!

 

By the time the first game started, a steady drizzle turned into a downpour. It did not have any effect on the players or supporters, in fact, it became even more interesting as the field became slick in cleaner patches with other parts being waterlogged. The field conditions really separated the fit from the unfit, the regulars of football from the once a year players. By lunchtime, when the qualifying rounds were over, only the best prepared were left. There was a carnival atmosphere throughout the day, with many batches bringing in their own party food, there was even a whole barbeque lamb!
