The greenery is such a feast for the eyes. The thick foliage of the row of such old rain trees, like a blanket over the field.....can imagine the cool shade under those trees. Kayes really captured the light and shadows so well which makes this such an interesting composition.

Liz, aren't we envious of boys' schools and their sports fields? Remember what our school had?


I wonder if you still have your old school magazines. One of my ex-classmates borrowed both my Form 3 and Form 5 copies in the mid-'80s and never returned them. I had asked for them back several times but she always had the same reply (that she had lost them). Sad

Our CHIJ Convent had no field to speak of remember Phoebe, we had all extra-curricular activities in Ave Maria Convent.
Actually throughout my time in school, we never had a single school magazine until when I was a temporary teacher after form 5 in Marian Convent, when my mug shot appeared as a teacher in the school. I was always envious of all my brothers, Joe and my sons as they all had school magazines every year in SMI. In fact I am still in possession of many of the SMI magazines and Joe has to refer to them each time he meets an old classmate to recall some of their names Smile!
Do you remember our school badge. We had the metal ones that we pinned on our pinafore. During your time was it still the metal ones or was it the cloth type. Wished I had kept one as a souvenir

Liz, we had a miserable patch of lawn out the front of the school. Primary school sports were held there as I recall. And for playgrounds, the Primary School had the quandrangle and the Secondary School had the assembly ground and a small lawn which sloped down to the canteen. During my secondary years, our annual sports days were held at Coronation Park.


During primary school, we wore the old dark blue pinafore with petticoats. And we had to wear bloomers for sports. Yikes! It so happened that the new light-blue (nation-wide) uniform came in as we were transitioning from primary to secondary so we all ditched the old uniform by the time Form 1 came around.


We had the small metal school badge. Incidentally, I saw a few of our old school badges at the Horley Street Flea Market when I was there a few weeks ago. Silly me didn't think to buy one as a keepsake. All I could think of at the time was how to get the old cast-iron iron back to Australia should I give in to my whim.


Do you happen to have the SMI school magazine for 1975?

Liz, the shadows are from the palm trees in front of the school building.

I think all the students who didn't complete their homework had to clean the compound and mow the lawn. It's so well kept so I guess many of them didn't complete their homework Smile!

During my time, the weekly assembly was held in the school hall on Friday. The assembly will only be conducted outdoors on special occasions. I suppose times have changed in the later years and the school's procedures and traditions were amended accordingly.
