Gangsterism in VI

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.
 
 
KC Kwek
President
2013 - 2015

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!

Happy New Year 2014

 Year_2014

 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 (vioba.secretary@gmail.com) and also Nik Sidek (jaffarmohdsidek16@gmail.com) and Muthu (mveerapen@gmail.com)  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!

 

Best wishes,

KC Kwek

VIOBA Foundation

VIOBA Scholarship

How many Victorians are aware we have a VIOBA Foundation that supports the school and Victorians in general through scholarships and other expenses? Do you know it has a tax exempt status? This means donors will enjoy tax relief for the amount donated!

Many Victorians have created funds (kept in Fixed Deposits) of which interests are then utilised to support the school and Victorians. Currently VIOBA Foundation has close to RM3 million which generates about RM90,000 a year which is then used to support the scholarships and expenses.

 

VIOBA Annual Golf Tournament 2013 Report

It was an early start for the organizing committee with many getting into the club even before the staff! Banners and VIOBA flags were hoisted up and as daylight penetrated the darkness, it was clear that it will be a good day for golfing, as the weather will be similar to that of St. Andrews, gray skies and moody all round! However soil and fairway conditions were soggy.

About 60 Victorian Golfers participated for the annual VIOBA Golfing Tournament held at the Danau Golf Club on the 1st of Dec, 2013, with guests from DBKL and PIBG. Tee off was at sharp 8am with a Group picture taking session and then we were off with a gun-shot start!

It was pretty rough going, the wet soil conditions meant the greens were slow and not so easy to find. Many a balls went astray and played hide and seek with the golfers. Even the sweet young caddies were not able to help. Trudging up and down the fairway seemed to be par for this course.
