As far as I can remember when I came to the school in 1959 this stained glass window was already there.
To an ulu boy the fact I did not know anything about European art history of stained glass window remains a significant part of my life. I just looked at it as if it was a part of urban structure - very pretty and took it for granted.
As I slowly acquired more knowledge in school the significance of stained glass dawned on me.
Nevertheless it is still a remarkable piece of art in a small part of Borneo. I suppose it is even more remarkable that it is one of the few pieces left in Borneo.
And perhaps Mr.Nicholl had a hand in its design and specifications. I was too young being just 9 years old then and too "ulu"

Mr. Kum Boo was the Director of Education Department of Sarawak.
It was a big occasion for the school.
This photo is truly a collector's item.
