Band Fellowship

This year’s camp was a little special as we had an exchange program with Sri KL and SMJK Chung Hwa  right after the music camp. The band fellowship was held at Sri KL from 3rd of June to 5th of June. Sir Eric was invited as the tutor for the three bands. Wow, playing in a band with more than 100 people! We had an enjoyable time and made new friends through music. Here’s a fun fact: we got to sleep over at their classrooms!
On the last day, 5th of June, we had a joint concert. The concert drew full houses. It was a pleasant surprise to see so many ex-seniors and parents showing up at the concert. It was quite an emotional concert as it was the last time Sir Eric conducted the band with the Form 5s.

We would like to extend our deepest appreciation goes to our band tutor, Sir Eric Lee for making all of this possible. Thank you to National Band Directors Association of Malaysia as well as the tutors who gave us lessons. Not to forget Sri KL for hosting us and SMJK Chung Hwa for the exchange too.

Music Camp 2016

Music camp was not only time to have fun but also time to work. The annual band camp was held on the 30th of May to the 1st of June. The three days two nights camp was held at Primaland Resort, Port Dickson. We were fortunate as the band tutor of Raffles Institution, Mr Lim Yean Hwee paid us a visit. His experience and teachings will definitely serve us well in the years to come. Not to mention that his jolly personality and humor have kept the practice interesting and fun. Games were carried out throughout the camp. I can assure you that our members are having the time of their life! Hats off to the Organizing Committee of the camp for all their hard work and making this an unforgettable event!

Sports Day

Well, well, well, it is time for our annual Catholic High Sports Day again! Undeterred by the hot weather, our newly elected drum major, Wai Cong Bo leads the band and the house marchers into the field, signaling the start of Sports Day. Two songs were played that day, namely “Perro Caliente” and “Hujan di Tengahari” as our band members march into the field with high spirits.
