15TH FOUNDERS’ DAY / OPENING OF ST. LOUIS LIBRARY / HARI RAYA CELEBRATION
This year (2016) Montfort Youth Centre (MYC) is 15 years old! Mass was celebrated to commemorate this special day. We congratulate the Founders; Bro. Peter K sg. and Bro. Robin D sg. on this blessed day. Throughout these fifteen years, many youths have benefited from the MYC programme. This day was made more meaningful when Bro. Peter received a message from an ex-student from Batch 2, congratulating the two Brothers on Founders’ Day and thanking them for forming him to be a good Montfortian and to face life positively and responsibly as a skilled worker, son, husband and father.
This special day was also made memorable with the opening of the St. Louis Library by Bro. Peter K sg., Director of MYC. Six librarians were installed as the first librarians of MYC. Bro. Peter K sg., in his speech thanked Mr. & Mrs. John for helping to kick-start the library and for teaching the librarians the Dewey Decimal Classification system. He also thanked the staff from the General Studies Department and the librarians for their hard work. He specially thanked an anonymous donor who had donated an amount of money, which was used to buy the furniture and fittings for the library. In his speech, he encouraged the students to make good use of the library, to take care of the books and to have the good habit of reading.
Bro. Peter K sg. also took the opportunity to wish all Muslim staff and their family members a Selamat Hari Raya. Later all staff and students had a Hari Raya get together.
