VIOBA Scholarship

How many Victorians are aware we have a VIOBA Foundation that supports the school and Victorians in general through scholarships and other expenses? Do you know it has a tax exempt status? This means donors will enjoy tax relief for the amount donated!

Many Victorians have created funds (kept in Fixed Deposits) of which interests are then utilised to support the school and Victorians. Currently VIOBA Foundation has close to RM3 million which generates about RM90,000 a year which is then used to support the scholarships and expenses.

VIOBA Annual Golf Tournament 2013 Report

It was an early start for the organizing committee with many getting into the club even before the staff! Banners and VIOBA flags were hoisted up and as daylight penetrated the darkness, it was clear that it will be a good day for golfing, as the weather will be similar to that of St. Andrews, gray skies and moody all round! However soil and fairway conditions were soggy.

About 60 Victorian Golfers participated for the annual VIOBA Golfing Tournament held at the Danau Golf Club on the 1st of Dec, 2013, with guests from DBKL and PIBG. Tee off was at sharp 8am with a Group picture taking session and then we were off with a gun-shot start!

It was pretty rough going, the wet soil conditions meant the greens were slow and not so easy to find. Many a balls went astray and played hide and seek with the golfers. Even the sweet young caddies were not able to help. Trudging up and down the fairway seemed to be par for this course.

VIOBA Welcome Note

KKC 

I am KC Kwek, Victorian 1980-1986. I am humbled to be called upon to serve as the President of VIOBA for 2013-2015. The current Management Committee is made up of Victorians of experience ---having been in the VIOBA and the Committee for a number of terms--- and younger Victorians who will bring energy and vigour. Also on board is YBhg. Dato Yusli Mohamed Yusoff, who has graciously agreed to continue as Patron.

The past Management Committees have worked hard on a number of issues and have laid the foundation for a stronger, more vibrant VIOBA. My colleagues on the MC and I intend to strive hard to ensure that we stay on course to build a resilient VIOBA, in particular the communications and networking amongst Victorians locally and abroad, VIOBA’s finances and activities. We will work on improving ties with the School and the Administration with the aim of strengthening the bonds between current pupils and old boys.

As always support from members and Victorians remain crucial and I look forward to receiving feedback on how we may improve VIOBA further for the benefit of all.
