15TH JUNE 2012
15TH JUNE 2012
Today, June 15th, is a special day for the Chief Executive of St. John's Institution, Mr. Lim Hean Hwa. As early as 6.45am, Mr. Lim has been greeted with birthday wishes, but the best part of the day was yet to come.
Today is also the last day of the 'jemaah nazir' (school inspectors) visit to St. John's, and as early as 7.15am the inspectors have arrived in the school premises.
The morning assembly went on as usual, until the emcee called upon Mr. Chan Chee Kong to step on stage. That was when Mr. Lim was served the biggest surprise of the day. A decorated table with a cake on it was presented to him in front of the Johannian community, and the teachers were invited to step on stage to join the cake cutting ceremony.
To our pleasant surprise, the inspectors happily joined us, and we also had a visit from an officer from Jabatan Pelajaran Wilayah Persekutuan. I was granted the honour of leading the singing of the birthday song in both Bahasa Malaysia and English.
In the count of One, Two, Three, a group of at least 1000 Johannians sang wholeheartedly for our beloved Principal. Then, with one voice, led by Mr. Chan, everyone greeted "Happy Birthday, Mr. Lim", followed by cheering by the crowd. Mr. Lim was then presented with a fruit basket and a birthday card from the teachers by Mr. Lee Chee Seng, on behalf of the academic staff.
It was a happy event, which created a harmonious atmosphere, and we hope to preserve this atmosphere in St. John's on a daily basis.
Mr. Lim, many happy returns of the day to you, sir. May God bless you and grant you the strength and wisdom to manage our dear institution. HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
