Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2, Malacca, Malaysia
Sat, 19 Sep 2015

St. George's School saw its first delegation to visit the school this term on Thursday, 17th September 2015. Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2 was the third school to pay a visit this year. There were 18 students and 4 teachers. The group was led by the school's Student Affairs Assistant Registrar, Puan Norhayati binti Seman. Also in attendance were the chairman of St. George's School's Board of Governors, Mr. Anthony Liew Vun Chiang. The visitors were welcomed by the principal of St. George's School, Mr. Janidi Jingan, the deputy principal, Mr. NM Mubarak, heads of sections and departments, and other members of the teaching staff.

First, the programme was opened by the reading of the surah al-fatihah. Then, the principal, Mr. Janidi Jingan extended his thankfulness towards Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2 for making a reciprocal visit to St. George's School as part of the school's Immersion Programme. In September last year, St. George's had paid the visiting school a visit in Malacca and ties had been established then. The principal then congratulated Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2 for being maintaining its position as a High Performing School of Malaysia. He then proceeded to highlight the many similarities shared by both schools, particularly its size. Yet, for both schools, numbers quickly grew as excellence was achieved in not just academics, but also in co-curricular activities. In her reciprocal speech, Puan Norhayati binti Seman said that the school's visit to St. George's School was like a "dream fulfilled" as she had seen the school's progress and activities on the school's Facebook page. In so doing, Puan Norhayati had built up expectation that she believed would definitely be met today. Most importantly, Puan Norhayati believed that the two schools would be able to share strengths and hence become networking partners, hopefully paying yearly visits to each other.

The delegates were then warmly welcomed to St. George's School by way of the welcoming dance performed by a group of secondary students as well as another dance by a group of primary students. Both dances showcased not only the talents of the students of St. George's School but also the undeniable multiculturalism of the student body. The students of St. George's School were also treated to an energetic performance of choral speaking. The visiting delegation actually consisted of half the winning team that had come in second place in the national level competitions last year. Next, the highlight of the day, that is, the competitions, took place. In both Malay and English, there were story telling, public speaking and poem recitation competitions. There was also a Sahibba competition for Primary 5 and 6 students. The students of St. George's School had worked very hard over the last month and even during the recent school holidays practicing for these competitions. At the end of the day, both schools were revealed to have winners in each category of competition.

To end the day, each delegate was awarded a souvenir and a certificate. Both St. George's School and Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2 were glad to have been able to form ties through this visit. Sekolah Kebangsaan Convent Infant Jesus 2 left St. George's School as soon as the visit was over as the delegation had another visit lined up in Miri, Sarawak.
