MAHSOPA MELAKA NIGHT CRUISE

The above Melaka Night Cruise was held in Melaka on 20th. November 2010 with minimum participation from members and non-members of MAHSOPA.

On the committee level, Tan Sri Abdul Rahman and wife together with their domestic helper attended while the cruise co-ordinator, Kang and wife graced the event.

A Malacca-based Malacca High School former pupil, Mr. Ong together with his wife and son, supported the event. They met Mr. Kang and wife at the Aldy Hotel Bistro at about 7.00pm

Despite the lack of participants, our small group boarded the cruise boats at about 8.30pm with other visitors from various parts of Malaysia. Being the year end school holidays, the cruise was well patronised.

The night cruise began up the Melaka river by passing through the Stadthuys area, Riverside, Chan Koon Cheng bridge and Kampung Pantai. It continued onto Kampung Jawa, old central market and the newly constructed Hang Tuah bridge near to the former Cathay cinema.

After passing Hang Tuah bridge, it goes up river into Kampung Morten, Majestic Hotel and reached Taman Rempah before turning back to the river mouth.

Overall, it was a pleasant journey and the full moon lit up the night sky. The lights and murals including the water fountain at Dataran Munshi Abdullah at the end of Jalan Pasar Baru were some highlights of the Melaka River Night Cruise.

It was a pity that more members and their families were not keen to take part in this outing.

MALAYSIAN TAX TALK CANCELLED

The planned talk on "Malaysian Tax" on this coming Saturday morning on 27th. November 2010, has been cancelled.

The lack of response from members in confirming their attendances was the primary reason for canceling this T-talk.

We want to receive feedback from members on what topics they are interested to attend before we organise future talks. Some time and effort was done by the organiser(s) and as members, we should be responsive and take part in any of these scheduled talks and events.

MALACCA HIGH SCHOOL LIBRARY CEILING COLLAPSES



Close call for students as old school’s library roof caves in

Sunday August 1, 2010

By MARTIN CARVALHOmalacca@thestar.com.my
MALACCA: It was a close call for some students of the 184-year-old Malacca High School when the roof of its library came crashing down.
Although no injuries were reported during the incident early yesterday morning as the usually packed library is closed on weekends, there were students and teachers busy celebrating Canteen Day and attending the school’s Parents and Teachers Association meeting at the country’s second oldest school.
The incident is believed to have happened sometime between Friday night and before dawn yesterday and the damage was discovered at 8am by a general worker.
State education, science and technology committee chairman Datuk Yaakub Md Amin said the affected section of the building would be closed temporarily to allow the state public works department to assess the extent of damage and repair costs.
Ruptured: The damaged section of the library roof at Malacca High School.
“We will seal off not only the library but also the teachers and staff rooms located within the same building.
“There is a danger the entire roof may collapse as the timber rafters are affected by wood rot due to termite infestation and moisture following the recent wet spell,” he said.
He added that signs of wood rot were spotted a day earlier by the school authorities who immediately alerted state education officials.
The school is more than 180 years old but the single-storey structure where the library is housed was constructed in the 1940s.
The last major renovation done to this section of the building was carried out in 1971, he said.
He said repairs would cost about RM100,000 and would be carried out during the school break in September to allow the library to be opened for the new session next year.
Meanwhile, state MCA chairman Datuk Gan Tian Loo, who was invited to open the school’s PTA meeting, said it was fortunate that no injuries were reported in the incident.
Gan, who is also state public works committee chairman, said he would instruct state public works department to carry out safety inspections of old buildings at several schools in the city.

WELCOME TO MAHSOPA WEBSITE PORTAL


Welcome to our MAHSOPA Website Portal.

MAHSOPA was founded in 1976 in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia by a group of former Malacca High School students who resided in Kuala Lumpur and Selangor.

In order to re-connect with other former students of Malacca High School in the Federal Territory of Kuala Lumpur and in the State of Selangor, MAHSOPA in short or Malacca High School Old Pupils Association in the Federal Territory/Selangor, was established.

Over the years, MAHSOPA has organised events to bring together former pupils to meet up and relive their days in Malacca High School.

Besides organising Annual Dinners, Book launches, Get-togethers and outings, MAHSOPA raised funds for our Alma Mater, contributed money for poor students in need of food vouchers and provided scholarships to deserving Malacca High students.

To date, MAHSOPA has more than 350 life members and MAHSOPA wants to recruit more Life members.
