14th February 2009 - A Day to Remember

14th February 2009 will be forever remembered by all Victorians not because it was Valentine's Day, but it was because Victoria Institution was proclaimed as a National Heritage by the Malaysian Government.

Y.B. Dato' Seri Haji Mohd Shafie bin Haji Apdal, Minister of Culture, Arts, Heritage and Unity (who is also a Victorian - batch of 1976) officiated the event with much pomp and pageantry, amidst full media coverage.

To the pleasure and delight of all present and past Victorians, he announced that our school's name would revert to Victoria Institution, and not the former "SMK Victoria". Three rounds of the famous V.I. clap ensued immediately. This was the day when many Victorians, including guests, met and mingled with each other. Some had not met each other for ages.

Now, there are plans to get V.I. back on track to its former glory. All of you are invited to participate in this process in any way you like, be it financial and material contributions, sponsorships, ideas, energy, effort or time. To all Victorians, what better way to show your love to the school by making it Malaysia's best school.

Viva Victoria!
