The Muar Andreans Association KL
Chapter was rekindled when an old boy of St Andrew
School, Dr Paul Lim Keng Yew met his old classmate, then Dr
Ahamad Bin Sipon by chance in Kuala Lumpur one fine morning in
February 2001. Both were from the class of 1968.
They chatted about their careers, family,
their school and enquired about the well being of their
beloved old headmaster, Rev.Bro Robert, who retired in 1980.
Soon they made a decision to make visit him at St Francis
During their meeting with Rev. Bro Robert, he
mentioned with sadness about the school having lost their
glorious education standards and lamented on the pathetic
state of the school canteen that was built some 30 years
On April 21, 2002, over 50 old boys gathered
at Dr Paul Lim’s residence in Section 16, Petaling Jaya. The
late Rev.Brother Robert was present as special guest and he
again spoken of the need to form a Kuala Lumpur Chapter of the
Muar Andrean Association to foster fellowship, networking and
provide social responsibility to their school and the needy
The same night, a pro-tem committee was formed
and Dato Dr Ahamad Bin Sipon was elected unanimously as
President with Dr Paul Lim as Vice-President. The other
committee members comprise Mr Charles Lee Keng Seng, Mr Adrian
Goh, Encik Mustaphar Mahmud. Mr Edmund Ng See Kam as the
Chairman of fund raising. The pro-tem committee worked very
hard to build a 3-storey canteen cum multimedia hall. A fund
raising dinner was organized on June 29, 2001 at Holiday Villa
Subang and about RM105,000 was raised. Later, the Ministry of
Education provided a grant of RM500,000. The Muar Committee
also raised RM150,000 from their April 17, 2004 fund raising
dinner and the school PTA raised RM100,000 bringing the total
