93rd Founder's Day

Montfort school's 93rd Founder's Day was commemorated on the 25th of April 2009. As part of this year's programme, the Indoor Sports Hall(ISH) was officially opened. It is named the Chew Hua Seng Foundation Indoor Sports Hall after Mr. Chew Hua Seng, who was the Guest-of-Honor for the day.

After inspecting the guard-of-honor, Mr Chew, along with other distinguished guests toured the ISH. This was followed by a sports procession and showcase by the various sports groups like the basketball, tennis, softball and badminton teams. Also, boys from Montfort Secondary and Montfort Junior showcased a synchornised workout, something similar to our mass workout.

At the same time, there were several perfromances in the Montfort Secondary hall. This line-up included the Montfort Junior String Ensemble, Montfort Sec NPCC, TLDDS and a joint Wushu performance. Then, Mr Chew and guests from the ISH preceedings joined the hall programme.
Prizes were given out to oustanding students who had excelled in the previous year's 'N', 'O' levels and the PSLE exams. Also, teachers who had been recently promoted were given the due commendations.3 video presentations were shown; the first being on the life of Montfort, followed by a video on Montfort School and lastly, a photo slideshow on the earlier ISH opening. As a fitting end to the commemoration, 'Glory to thee Montfort' and the school song was played, and everyone in the hall sang their hearts out.
