The holidays at the end of each year is never a quiet season for our school. From 5th December 2016 when the SPM examinations ended, there is a busyness in SMK Convent Sentul not matched by many other schools. The hive of activities executed by about 15 teams of workmen is closely supervised by their bosses on site in school. The teams' bosses works in close liaison and are spearheaded by Mr. Lee Geok Ai, Chairman of the Board of Governors. I and Pn Wang and the team of school administrators and teachers and office staff work together with these crews to upgrade the school.
The school at 8.30 am in the morning will look different from the school at 12.00 noon and at 5.00 pm because the progress of the upgrading works done by the various crews of men. Mr. Lee comes in personally many times to assess the problems faced by the various crews. His expertise empower them to resolve the problems faced.

The erosion at the bottom of the assembly platform is being arrested by repacking the soil and returfing it with new grass. The field will be improved by new soil and returfing. New shrubs are planted near the zincalum block to provide more shade for the 3 classrooms there. Paths are filled with river pebbles add a fresh look to our grounds. Canteen benches were also repaired .Mr Lee was concerned that the canteen benches would spoil the girls' new uniform when they came back to school. Mr Lee got Daniel Yong Shi Yuen and his team of men from BeauTop to repair them all.
