Hospitality Block Renovations

The Hospitality Block at PKH Chbarmorn has recently been renovated. Thanks to the renovations team: Francis Tan, Dinah Tan, Irene Lee and Jean Koh. They were at the PKH Centre on 28th September to put the finishing touches. These include an air-conditioning system (donated by members of the team) for the lecture area.

Much of the furniture is patterned after that of the Himawari Hotel. Here are some pictures of the renovations done to the Hospitality Block.

The Byron Consort of Harrow School

Harrow School is one of the oldest and most famous schools in England, educating over 800 boys, all full boarders. Among its illustrious alumni, Winston Churchill is probably the best known.

The Byron Consort is Harrow’s elite vocal ensemble, founded in 2001 by Philip Evans (then Assistant Director of Music and now a House Master at Harrow) who continues to direct the choir. It consists of around eighteen Harrow boys and four adults. The choir sings a mixture of unaccompanied sacred and secular music, most of which comes from the Renaissance, Romantic and Modern periods. Many of the boys are ex-choristers from leading cathedral and collegiate choirs such as Westminster Abbey, King’s College Cambridge, Canterbury, Westminster and Winchester Cathedrals, St. George’s Chapel Windsor and Christ Church Cathedral Oxford, as well as a former member of the Vienna Boys’ Choir.

Since its inception, the choir has sung regularly at services and concerts at Harrow as well as St Paul’s Cathedral, Westminster Abbey, Westminster, Winchester, Canterbury and Chichester Cathedrals, St George’s Chapel Windsor Castle and various college Chapels in Oxford and Cambridge.

The choir has performed on 14 overseas trips, including Venice, Florence Vienna, Salzburg, Stockholm, Washington, in many notable venues: St Peter’s Basilica in Rome, St Basil’s Cathedral in Moscow and Trinity Wall Street & St John the Divine Cathedral in New York City.

This year is its first Asian trip to Singapore, Hong Kong and Shanghai, in December 2015. To find out more about them, watch youtube via this link .

PKH Siem Reap Trip 24th-27th September 2015

Hi all,

I got back from the PKH Siem Reap trip and apologies for the delayed post!

We had a meaningful time of fellowship with one another, visiting places in Cambodia, and meeting former PKH trainees to see how their lives have been changed for the better by the power of the Gospel and by the kindness of PKH supporters to the poor and needy .

Many of us had the privilege of interacting with many former students who took time off to show us the fantastic sites of Siem Reap including Angkor Wat and Tonle Sap Lake.

The highlight of the trip was the PKH Alumni dinner which was attended by 145 people, including 28 people from St Andrew’s Cathedral, 99 former students of PKH, and staff of PKH. It was wonderful to see the former students, quite a few of whom are now married with children, and to hear their testimonies.  God has indeed brought them out of economic and spiritual poverty.

Here are their testimonies compiled into a booklet entitled ‘Life Stories’ which was distributed at the alumni dinner. If you’d like to read it, please click here.

I’ll be posting some photos of the trip soon, so watch this space!

Thanks. =)
