Thank you all!

‘Twas twenty long life-changing years ago
When we whispered to the School, “Toodle-oo!”
Saying goodbye to TV restrictions
And those infernal Sunday inspections

We may have since gained quite a few kilos
And may have turned a little bit mellow
But we could still leap proudly to action
For OBW2006 celebration

Historic reunion it certainly was
And the Dinner Show was indeed a blast
So thank you to all who made it happen
And to everyone there at the Weekend

Selamat Hari Raya & Maaf Zahir Batin

D-Day minus 6

We are nearly there!

Jo and Czar have already flown in from Bahrain and Canada respectively especially for the occasion. That can only mean that D-Day is around the corner. If you are still undecided about coming, here are some highlights of OBW 2006 (8 to 10 September 2006) to help you in making that decision. (For more details go here)

Friday 8 September 2006

Career Talk and Workshops. (3 p.m. to 5 p.m.) We'll kick-off with a career talk at 3.00 p.m. called "Memilih Kerjaya Yang Sesuai" and breakout workshops will follow for individual old boys to share their working experience with the boys. If you feel that you have something to share please contact us so we could sort out a slot for you.

Forum: Life After STAR. (8.30 p.m. to 10.00 p.m.) In the evening we will have a moderated discussion with the Fifth Formers on issues that they will generally face after leaving school. The old boys will attempt to spread some wisdom that we have gained the hard way regarding life in general. It is not unreasonable to expect that one piece of sound advice imparted will be: start collecting funds for OBW 2026 now!

Saturday 9 September 2006

Debat Perdana. (10.00 a.m. to 11.30 a.m.) We expect a lively discussion on the topic of "STAR - Di manakah halatuju di dalam arus perubahan". It will be interesting to see what the panelists - Tan Sri Murad Mohd Noor, Datuk Haji Idris Jusoh, Dato’ Awang Adek Hussin, Encik Abdul Rahman Ahmad and Arif Azlan Adnan (STAR student representative) - will have to say seeing that they represent thoughts and ideas of Starians and teachers from different eras of STAR.

Sukantara. (2 p.m. to 5 p.m.) This year we are departing from the usual STAROBA v. STAR games format. The games will be of the 'telematch' variety (Bom Air should bring back memories of post-cross-country revelry!) and teams based on our 6 houses will battle each other out. The games are open to old boys, teachers, students and family members. Remember to sign up for the games as soon as you register for the OBW 206 at the secretariat.

STAROBA v. MCOBA Rugby (5 p.m. to 7 p.m.) Enough said. Make sure you turn up to watch a spectacular thrashing. And I shall leave that last statement vague ...

Konsert Gemilang OBW 2006 ( 8 p.m. to 11 p.m) Woo-hoo! With Daphne Iking as MC and Nita (Malaysian Idol), Farahdhiya and our very own STAR Orchestra (seriously - they are good) performing, we are set for a gala time. As a special treat, we have asked Amran Tompel to come again. No ...just joking.

Sunday 10 September 2006

STAROBA AGM (10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.) This is an election year and next year is the Golden Jubilee. So make sure your votes count!

AND to prove that we have been working hard to make this event happen, here are some recent pictures of the boys at work:

It's late and they are still trying hard to balance the books

Briefing our professional reception personnel. What a chore!

If this bankrupts me at least I know some good cheap lawyers, thinks Mansor

See you all in Ipoh!
