" Wow! This site brings back so much memories. I've been meaning to find out what happened to all my classmates such as Shukhairi, Hisham Jafaar, Badrul Hisham, Ramayah, Phang Chow Shin and many more. Where are you guys? I left St George after Form Five in 1989. Went to Singapore after Form Six. Worked in Raffles Hotel, Centro 360 and Ritz Carlton. Now I'm back in Malaysia in Shangri La's Rasa Sayang Resort & Spa, Penang. Staying in Batu Feringgi. Please email if u know me".

Hi guys/girls. Maybe a bit off topic here,but i am hoping to get connected with my former schoolmates from Aulong primary school(the english medium) 1966 - 1970.I left for KL at the end of my std 5(1970) I believe some of former classmates would have joined SGI after their std 6.
I lost touch with all of them. I was then called by the name Chong Chin Tat or Thaddeus Chong.
If you are one of them, it would be nice to talk of old times.Who knows,it may even snowballed and get more in the loop and maybe meet.
If you recall......pls email me emprolinkted@gmail.com

Hi Sir. Daniel Ong here. Class of '74 in Form 5 Science 1. You taught us Geography. Hope you're keeping well. I'm in KL - occasionally bumped into your brother in Lake Club. Sorry, I wasn't in the AVA Club as I was too involved with athletics, hockey and soccer.

An email from Ambrose A. Amaladas Pillai (ambrose_lxndr@yahoo.com)


I joined St. Georges Institution in 1957. Started in Kindergaten and finished in Form 5. My heart goes out to this beautiful and wonderful school where all my dreams and intimate experiences lie within the archieves of my mind so vividly as though it were just yesterday.


Everytime when I'm in Taiping I drive past my school and gaze at her beauty.


My tribute to the wonderful teachers that come to mind namely The Late Bro. Leo (Director), Bro. Christopher Dennis Dhoss, Bro. John D'Cruz, Late Bro. Fabian, Mr. Alphonsus Kok, Mr. Patrick Weller, Mr. Kuah Say Kong, Mr. Ng Chin Meng, the late Mr. James Saw, the late Mr. Khoo Kay Tee, Mr. Joe Francis, The late Mr. Camulus Pereira, Late Ooi Chek Kuat, late Mr. Lesslar, Mr. Marshall Fernandez (now a priest). To the many more that don't come to mind, I salute you.


In this school I grew and was moulded in discipline and character that made what I am today.The years in SGI were the golden years of my life.I owe it all to my school SGI.


I am a 'Life member' of the old Geogians Association, as I want always to be close to my 'Alma Mater' that I treasure dearly.


My Father, myself, my brother, son (Navin J Ambrose HeadPrefect yr 2000) and my daughter are all Geogians, and we are extremely proud to be called Georgians/Georgiana.


St. George's your magnificant presence in Taiping makes you the perpectual icon of dignity and pride to our nation.


With pride I have left behind my footsteps of love and dedication. Remembrance of my walk through the magnificant corridors of this gentle yet honourable school leaves tears of joy for 'My School'.


SGI Thank You my dear school.

This school taught me to be a responsible , broadminded and friendly towards all races and religion. I was born and brought up as a Muslim , served the country (RMAF)till pension and todate I'm 1 (one Malaysia) not because of Najib but of this school. No religious barrier in the 60's eventhough all the teachers/tutors are Christians , the canteen too operated by non Muslim but we enjoy the food and the environments of this school. Thanks very much to the SGI and staff.

Malaysia has various types of schools. I asked my friend who is from Chinese school and currently studying in an uni in Beijing why she chose to study in China. She said: "Don't know which friend of her parents' influenced them. I came to China not to study Mandarin. I speak more English than Mandarin. Most of the courses are in English. Perhaps my parents think the route less travelled brings more rewards."

Thanks Kayes. With this Taiping Talk it helps me to trace the old memory lane. As above I saw Nr T.A Santsingh comment, eventhough he is not directly my formteacher . I still remember all the good teacher like him, Mr Victor Lim, Mr David, Mr Preira, Joseph Fong, Bro John , Mr Fernandez and the late Mr Lesslar, Ooi Chek Quat and others. For me they are the real hero which most of their students are running the government and private sector as at todate. Salute to them which today Malaysia is a prosperous, peace and harmony country where they indroctinated the students with good knowledge, civic minded and to love all just as what the Westeners/British taught them.

My school! It was a great school and still is. I was there during Bro Carl as the headmaster. He speaks BM very well, for a German. I really enjoyed being student there.

We should learn anything thru past experience. If I were the government, surely I'll retain the missionary school as it was before. Right or wrong teaching not because of the school. I'm sure the chapel is no more there ??? Ex RMAF.... patriotic towards nation as well this school (St Georges).

Good day to all Georgians. As we know this school was completed in 1915 and founded by La Salle brothers, land donated by the Kwa family. How strong and beautiful the foundation and architecture those days. Hope this school remains as it is and not converted to Madarsah Al Taliban. Salute to the founder and teachers those days which their good deeds take them to heaven.

Good day to all Georgians. In the year 1967 and 1968 I was in Form 1V & V Arts 1
at the third floor end towards barrack road. We use to smoke in the toilet where the cleanliness exemplary. The HM and teachers are missionary brothers. Anyone can tell me now whether the cleanliness maintained as to date.

Smoking in the toilet during the 60's and the HM and teachers then were missionary brothers?! Cool! The toilet was so clean that he could smoke in it and now he wants to find out if the present day students have clean toilet to do those stuff he did when he was in school. Very considerate of him!

My name is CHOONG Yoke Choy (Jeffrey), from Class of '64. This year is our Golden 50th Anniversary and we will be having a Reunion Dinner in Taiping on Nov 8, 2014. We have managed to reach out to all (except 4) classmates in Form 5A and most will be attending this Reunion. I would like to take this opportunity to invite all our teachers (primary or secondary) plus all other school mates that left SGI in 1964. Many of us have not seen each other for 50 years; it will be a memorable and nostalgic reunion!

Hi Jeffrey


My name is Vincent Kee and also formerly from Taiping. I am thinking of organising a reunion dinner of old classmates of 46 years ago, hopefully in 5 months time. I noticed that you managed to contact most of your old classmates in your post. I would be much obliged if you can tell me, or refer me to others, how you obtained their contact details. Thank you for your assistance. I hope you enjoyed your reunion dinner

Vincent, sorry for this very late response. This forum is very quiet, and after seeing virtually no feedback/input, I stopped visiting altogether. However today, I was browsing my bookmarks and took a chance to visit again.


It took me about 9 months to contact all my Year of '64 classmates. Started off by contacting a few classmates who residing in Taiping, and then reaching out from there. We had a great turnout and we had a wonderful dinner gathering at the New Club (Lake Gardens). The following day we visited our Alma Mater. Good luck with your reunion.
