SMK Seri Kembangan Wind Band - Malaysia

In the 80’s. the PTA of SMKSK discovered that the school band of STK(C) Serdang Baru 1 was doing well. The PTA of the school also discovered that some of the students from the primary level were good in music. So, the PTA decided to form a band so that all the students in the school would have a chance to learn music and the band members from the primary level could continue their love for music.
After some hard work, the chairman of the PTA, Mr. Lai Foot San, and other committee members successfully collected enough money. They had a lot of support from a Member of Parliament, Mr Yeoh Poh Song, and a state Assemblyman, Mr Yap Pian Hon.
The school band was founded on 13th October 1982, and officially officiated on 25th February 1984 with 72 members. Forming the school band was not an easy task at that time. While some people supported the formation of the band, others were skeptical and thought it would be a waste of time and money.
After some serious discussion, the committee members of the PTA decided that they had made the right decision. Excellent performance showed by the band did not let them down and proved them right.
The success of the band is due to the effort, hard work and contribution by the PTA.

在80年代初期,SMKSK的PTA发现SMK(C) Serdang Baru 1的校乐队表现出色。此外学校里许多低年级学生也都擅长于音乐表演。因此PTA决定成立一个乐团为全校的学生提供学习音乐的机会,而那些低年级乐队成员也能继续专注于他们所热爱的音乐。
经过一系列努力后,PTA的主席Mr. Lai Foot San以及其他协会成员成功募集到了足够的资金。他们过得了国会成员Mr Yeoh Poh Song 以及州代表Mr Yap Pian Hon的大力支持。
学校乐队成立于1982年10月13日,规范化于1984年2月25日,由72个成员组成。成立学校乐队经历了许多波折。虽然有一些人支持成立乐队这一举措,但仍然有人持怀疑态度,认为成立乐队既浪费精力又浪费金钱。
在进过一系列认真的研讨后,PTA协会成员认为他们做出了正确的选择。乐队出色的表现没有支持这一决定的人失望。
