Main Convent Ipoh
Main Convent is another premier school in Ipoh, situated adjacent to Ipoh Parade and Sam Tet High School, it is known as the mother of other prestigious all-girls schools in Ipoh, namely Tarcisian Convent, Ave Maria and Convent elementary schools. For your information, St Michael (all-boys) was also part of the Main Convent so i]her history surpassed many schools. To date, it is 118 years old and still counting.
This story was related to me by my sister, who is a Convent alumni. It happened in the late evening where most of the students went back. A disciplinary teacher was doing her routine patrol before she headed home. She walked pass offices, classrooms, toilets and reached the food court where she saw two girls, sitting on a bench. The girl on the right was doing her homework, presumably killing time to wait for her parents to fetch her up.
The teacher continued her patrol and made a second round. This time when she reached the food court, there was only the girl-doing-homework left. She approached the girl and asked ‘Where is your friend?’. The girl replied ‘What friend, madam?’.
The teacher was startled and asked her to quickly go home.
