Yours in La Salle,
President, LSCOBA, 2020-21
First Town Hall MeetingOn the evening of 29th January 2021, LSCOBA had its first town hall meeting for the year. We are honoured with the presence of more than 50 old boys, including some who live overseas, joining us in the early morning of their time.
The meeting started with a prayer. We reported on our work done in the first 100 days, and outlined the plans for the coming months. To give a fuller view of our operation, we also took the opportunity to introduce the financial position of LSCOBA since the last AGM.The presentation was followed by an open floor discussion, where members shared with us their questions, comments and suggestions.
We would like to thank all who, by taking up different work and by giving advice, made our achievements possible, as well as all who took the time to attend the meeting.
We look forward to meeting you (again) at the next town hall!
