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.
It is a game for ruffians played by gentlemen……Come support the VI Team on April 5-6, 2014 at the VI Greens, entrance is FREE!

I take the greatest pride and joy when I read the citation to honour a great man and life member of VIOBA, Datuk Mahadev Shankar recently.
Many Congratulations Datuk!

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.
Hi Everyone, there will be a hockey match between the VIOBA and the St. John's old boys teams at the KLHA Stadium Lembah Pantai, KL on Thursday 13 Feb at 8.30pm. Come support the VIOBA team as we need to win this and the next match to be the top 2 teams in Division 3 and qualify for the finals. The immediate past President, Amrul Zeflin has promised to score a few goals and will throw us a party later! And yes Victorians, admission is FREE! Come one come ALL!
Oh when the blues, oh when the blues go marching in........
There is a letter to the Editor published in the Star today, February 4, 2014 written by the PTA Yang Di Pertua, Datuk Dr. Nik Zamri Majid relating to gangsterism in VI.
Let me be clear here. VIOBA does not condone such acts of indiscipline and condemns in the strongest manner possible, the behavior of such students. They bring shame to the school and all of us who are proud to be Victorians.
I wish to reiterate VIOBA’s support to the school and PTA in doing what is necessary to protect the good name of the Victoria Institution and the safety of our fellow Victorians.
2013 - 2015
On behalf of the Management Committee, I would like to wish everyone a very happy Chinese New Year! May the Horse bring you and your loved ones much happiness, good fortunes and good health all year round. Those traveling to balik kampong or on holidays should drive safely and take extra care. All my best wishes for the year, GONG XI FA CAI!
I take this opportunity on behalf of VIOBA to wish members, Victorians and family all the best in 2014. I am expecting an exciting start to 2014 with a special luncheon organised by the Board of Governors in January to kick off the plans for the school and VIOBA. In VIOBA's calendar there will be the Perdana Shield Golf Tournament in the 1st quarter, Mokhtar Dahari Challenge in May, our AGM in June and Annual Dinner in August 2014.
The Management Committee is working hard on improving services to our members. One of our latest achievement is the ability to utilize the school field again for our games. There will be a minimal charge for the usage, details can be requested from the Hon. Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org) and also Nik Sidek (email@example.com) and Muthu (firstname.lastname@example.org) who are in charge of the sport activities. Rules do apply as it remains a privilege for VIOBA members only.
Let’s work towards a successful year in 2014!
