Time  :  7:00 pm

Venue  :  Royale Chulan Hotel, Mutiara Damansara

Attire  :  Formal

The VIOBA Management Committee for 2013/2015 intends to honour the concept of what is a Victorian and the Victorians who have contributed to the success of the School over a 5 year period as set out below.

In this 5 year plan, the VIOBA Annual Dinners 2014-2018 will celebrate, among others, Victorian Sportsmen, Victorian Scholars and Victorian Corporate Figures. This will culminate in the celebration of the “Victorian: Gentleman, Scholar & Sportsman” and the 125th Anniversary of VI at the VIOBA Annual Dinner 2018.

The themes for the Annual Dinners 2014 – 2018 are as follows:

 Table1

For the 125th Anniversary Grand Celebration, VIOBA plans and will endeavor to bring together all the descendants of our Founders and the descendants of Queen Victoria herself to attend our Gala event. What a night it will be!

We hope that this will reflect the vision of our founding members of bridging relationships amongst Old Boys across batches, generations, backgrounds and lands for a united effort to raise the VI flag to new heights. We believe that the Annual Dinner every year will also be a night to revisit cherished memories, reconnect with old friends, forge connections and foster new friendships. Each event will culminate in a toast to a better future together!
