Alma Mater's Call

Last Saturday, there was a farewell dinner for our retiring Bro. Paul Ho, my secondary school principle. We dont goes by the name headmaster, but rather, principle. Being the last brother to serve St. Xavier Institution, many questions would arise relate to the future of our beloved school. Will it ever be in good hand?

my beloved school, St. Xavier Institution

My friend Kennard attended the farewell dinner at Traders Hotel. Probably i should have made myself vacant during that evening and join in the event. Well, no point regreting now. But then again if i ever did, i would need to apply for a private loan or borrow from my parents to go for the dinner. Yea, im officially broke.

"Yea Sou", was his well known alias throughout our school and others as well. His ability and capability to talk, to speak and to lecture for hours. He might not looks like his age, but he always walks around in his white robe and a cane in his right hand, and many had once fallen into his rotan. I too had been caned by Bro. Paul Ho, as early as my 3rd day of school during Form 1. I could still picture that day clearly in my head being talkative. LOL.

How i wish i could have attend that farewell dinner. Singing Alma Mater.

All through our college a voice is resounding,
Promptly respond to your duty's sweet call,

Hearken you all for the trumpet is sounding,
Your mater's proclaiming her watchwords to all


Forward her children dear,

Ever with hearts sincere,

Render with joy to your mater her due,

All that is vile reject,

Heaven will e'er protect,

Sons of St Xavier's valiant and true


Labour will conquer your motto still bearing,
Forward with courage in ways that are just,

True to your standard, be doing and daring,

As faithful Xaverians in Heaven your trust

Forward her children dear,

Ever with hearts sincere,

Render with joy to your mater her due,

All that is vile reject,

Heaven will e'er protect,

Sons of St Xavier's valiant and true!


Goodbye. Farewell. GOD bless Bro. Paul Ho. GOD bless St. Xavier.
