* A MESSAGE FROM THE ORGANISING COMMITTEE *
A Grand Celebratory Reunion of the Diaspora of VI Alumni will be held on 24-25 July 2018 to welcome and celebrate the Years of Camaraderie for all alumni who walked the hallowed corridors and playing fields of the Victoria Institution. Victorians who were in VI in 1958 will celebrate their Diamond Jubilee. Victorians who were in VI in 1968 will be celebrating their Golden Jubilee. All Victorians who were fortunate to be in VI in 1993 and who celebrated a Centenary of their alma mater in 1993 will celebrate their Silver Jubilee in 2018. This is a Big Tent Celebrations for all Victorians whatever your vintage. Regardless of the year you were in VI, you are invited to join us in Celebration.
A Gala Reunion Dinner will be held on Wednesday, 25 July 2018 at 7.00 pm.

WHERE: RESORTS WORLD, GENTING

GALA REUNION DINNER: Wednesday, JULY 25, 2018
WHO'S INVITED: ALL VI ALUMNI, THEIR FAMILIES, EX-TEACHERS, AND FRIENDS
The venue will be at the Genting International Convention Centre Ballroom (GICCB). Your partner and you are encouraged to stay two nights (or even more!) at Genting Highlands in order to make the VI Alumni Grand Gala Gathering (VIGGG) a memorable occasion. This is our chance to rekindle friendships, catch up with old friends and generally enjoy each others’ company that were forged in our many delightful and youthful years of camaraderie in the classrooms and sport venues in the Alma Mater.
All Victoria Institution Alumni (VIA) are welcome to join us in the celebrations. We cordially invite all VIA to join us in our celebratory dinner. Indeed whether you were in Form 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in 1958 or any other year does not matter. If you were in VI in 1958, 2018 is a Diamond Jubilee Celebration. This is truly a Grand Gala Gathering for everyone who studied in VI. Every Victorian is welcome to join us in our celebrations. If you were in Form 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6 in 1993, 2018 is the year of your Silver Jubilee Celebrations. Indeed, Victorians of all vintages, whether younger or older, are welcome to join us in Celebrations. For many of us, this may be the Last Big Hurrah!
Let us know if your friends want to buy a table or share a table with another group of friends. We will try to accommodate your wishes to be seated with your best friends.
The venue of the VIGGG will be at Genting Highlands. We have negotiated a special package on the dining and room rates. You are encouraged to stay over the nights of 24 July 2018 and 25 July 2018 in order to fully participate in this Grand Reunion.
Souvenirs and photographs
Souvenirs will also be given to all attendees. A photographer will take pictures of the Reunion Dinner on 25 July 2018. Photographs of the Gathering will be uploaded on to the VIWEB.
We seek your assistance in spreading the word of VIGGG. Please contact them by email, telephone or snail mail. We want everyone from the VI to be with us in our Grand Reunion. We will post this announcement at the VI web site: www.viweb.mysite.com/vihome.htm
A more detailed programme will be available later. If you have any ideas, send these ideas to us … all in the spirit of making this VIGGG a memorable, fun and successful event to be remembered for a long time!
The Organising Committee hopes more alumni will sponsor generously. Please contact any one on the Committee if you wish to donate items like wine or door gifts or lucky-draw gifts. We need more sponsors in order to make our VIGGG more memorable and successful.
All donations are welcome. We welcome as many sponsors as possible to make our gathering as successful as possible. In addition, we also welcome those who wish to sponsor any particular (favourite) teacher of theirs!

Note 1. It is hoped that all of you will choose the Full Package at First World Hotel so that we are all at the First World Hotel.
Note 2. There is so much to do at Resorts World Genting (RWG) that the Committee has not made this Get-Together Do a must. Do join in if you believe singing a few songs together and spinning tales of yesteryear with friends is your cup of tea.
Note 3. Those of us who have not come to RWG for many years would be astounded by the new attractions. Two attractions near the First World Hotel are recommended. Firstly, you are recommended to see the Twentieth Century Fox World (hopefully completed by July 2018.). Secondly, stroll about the Skyway Avenue Mall with one floor on Malaysian Street Food, one floor to more upmarket F & B, one floor for shopping and one floor not fully open yet in August 2017.
Note 4. Those of you who are interested in music may look forward to visit the Arena of Stars.
