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!

Speech Day 2014

The Speech Day (known as Majlis Anugerah Cermerlang these days) was held at the VI Hall (known as Dewan Warisan these days) on April 19, 2014. The guest of honour was Tan Sri Rafidah Aziz (Victorian 1961-1962). A whole host of students, parents, teachers and guests including old boys were gathered on a beautiful Saturday morning to welcome Tan Sri Rafidah to VI once again.

Tan Sri Rafidah looked resplendent in her all blue outfit (carefully chosen, I am sure) and was immediately ushered to be welcome officially to VI by inspecting the school cadet Guard of Honour and with the VICC band playing the welcome theme in the background.

 

 

Tribute to Dato' Jaffar Indot

 

I received sad news that eminent Victorian, Dato' Jaffar Indot passed away yesterday. This is indeed a sad day for Victorians and all of us who knew him. Dato' Jaffar was in VI from 1947-1951 where he completed his secondary education. In an interview with the Seladang he said the most important lesson he learned from his days in VI was honesty and integrity, and a strong belief in fairness and a high sense of values. Above all, to respect each other’s religious beliefs.
