1 July 2012 marked the 5th Anniversary of Nalanda Institute Malaysia. We were very grateful for the presence of our Founding Director, Bro. Tan Ho Soon; Director, Mr.Vijaya Samarawickrama; and Senior Management Lecturer, Mr. Tan Huat Chye, on this anniversary observance day.
1 May is designated ‘Nalanda Day’; it marks the 9th anniversary of Nalanda’s founding. On this day, Nalandians congregated for morning devotion at the Shrine Hall, before gathering in the Srivijaya Hall, where important Society events are usually held.
Among the many significant ‘news’ for the day were the launchings of Nalanda’s revised website, our new uniform, our first vehicle – a reconditioned, used-van generously donated by Mr. Chan Fong, and “Nalanda-Macro” – an important document outlining Nalanda’s Transformation Programme and our organizational goals for the next one year.
