Today, I woke up to the news that Ms Millicent Sibert has passed away in Penang.
She was in her eighties. Thank you QOTH for leaving me a message this morning. This was confirmed by a journalist friend in Penang. The sad news is now seeping through the ex SNC network, thanks to sms and YM’s.

No running along the corridors, no speaking in any other languages but English. A strict disciplinarian she was and today, we are grateful for all the rules and regulations and disciplines that have shaped us into what we are today.
Rest in peace Ms Sibert from all your former students at SNC.
To the family and friends she left behind, our heartfelt condolence.
