The KTJ Alumni Society intends to achieve this vision through its mission of
- Promoting a strong relationship between the Society and KTJ
- Promoting a sense of KTJ pride among all students and alumni; and
- Developing an awareness of KTJ's history, accomplishments, programmes and offerings.
The idea of having an alumni organisation was initially conceived by Kenneth Tan in, one of the pioneer students of KTJ. The mantle of leading the fledgling organisation was passed to Leong Yeng Kit, who successfully organised the first major KTJ Alumni event to commemorate the Kolej's 10th anniversary at the Mines Palace of the Golden Horses hotel. Gan Te-Shen took over the leadership and under his direction, the alumni became a legally registered society on 20 September 2010 and is officially known as Persatuan KTJ Alumni Society, Negeri Sembilan. The current President is Mohamed Azlan Shah Shahroldin.
The KTJ Alumni Society regularly organises events both in KTJ and in Kuala Lumpur. There are generally social events organised annually in Kuala Lumpur as well as a major sporting carnival held at KTJ. More recently, we have added an annual gathering in London on our calendar. Our alumnus have also been more involved with KTJ activities such as being a speaker at the Careers Day, being part of the Theatre Sports and representing in the board of judges for the SEA Forensics Competition at ISKL.
With more support coming from both KTJ and our alumnus, the society will be able to achieve greater heights and be more relevant to all. KTJ Alumni activities are not limited to just KTJ and the society as the organising party. We do encourage any suggestions and recommendations from all alumnus, and we are willing to help you host an event if it is to cater for our alumnus. We intend to organise a business networking session in the future, starting with a conference on the Oil and Gas industry as we have identified a vast number of alumnus involved in this industry. This initiative was suggested by one of our alumnus who is willing to host this event.
For more information, keep in touch through one of our channels listed under 'Alumni Contacts'.
In recognition of the fact that our teachers have been a large part of our KTJ experience, in 2011, the KTJ Alumni Society awarded the ‘Pioneer Teachers Award’ to the eight teachers, namely Asogan Arumugam, Irene Yu, Krishnan K. Karupannan, Mohd Pauzi b. Mohd Nor, Norliza bt Othman, Sharifah Nura bt Syed Edros, Simon Lai Mun Chew and Zuraidah bt Omar. The Award acknowledges the contribution of these eight educators who had served KTJ since the date of its inception in 1991.
A commemorative plaque setting out the names of the pioneer teachers is mounted at the entrance of the Tuanku Najihah Hall. Each pioneer teacher was also awarded an award certificate which was presented by the Alumni's joint patron YAM Tunku Naquiyuddin ibni Almarhum Tuanku Jaafar.
Just because you no longer attend KTJ, it doesn't mean you have to lose touch with KTJ or other schoolmates. The KTJ Alumni Society offers a multitude of ways alumnus can stay involved. Whether it be attending one of our social events, participating in our numerous sporting events with current students of KTJ, or by following us on one of our social media platforms. We also send out periodical emails to our alumnus, therefore we require you to update your contacts for us to keep our database up-to-date. So whether you still live in Malaysia or have since left its sunny shores, your Alumni Society is always here to advocate for you, enrich your lives and continue to involve you with the traditions of Kolej Tuanku Ja’afar.
