If there is one thing that Malaysian Chinese hold dearly, it is our children’s education. Many parents are willing to save and be thrifty in all other aspects of their lives, as long as it guarantees quality schooling.
The earliest Chinese schools were found in 1904. The Chinese community was adamant on preserving their much treasured culture and language. This soon translated into a collection of fund which was used to build schools, providing education for the next generation.
A century has passed, and we still hold on dearly to these values. The efforts to build and maintain Chinese schools have never ceased. In fact, it has only became stronger.
As part of the Chinese community in Malaysia, I treasure our culture and language dearly. It is my conviction that this nation can only progress if we embrace quality education, diversity and an appreciation of our roots.
A good school needs good teachers and decent infrastructure. A comfortable environment would make both learning and teaching much more enjoyable, enhancing the overall experience of everyone.
This is also why I am concerned. Adequate funding never comes easy to Chinese schools. For many decades, we organise countless fund-raising events and seek for donation. We even have an annual charity concert to raise funds for Chinese schools.
When I found out that SJK(C) Lukut needed a new hall, I immediately initiated a meeting with my team to talk about how we can help them.
It came to my knowledge that the school was founded in 1930, and has produced countless talents. As the student body grows, the school is in need of a hall that can be used for extra curricular activities, exams, or other big events.
With this in mind, my team and I visited SJK(C) Chung Hua Lukut. After a meeting, we decided to donate RM350,000 to the school to build a multi-purpose hall. The project commenced in 2014, and was completed in 28th May 2015.
The school invited me to pay a visit. As expected, the hall was more than satisfactory. I was also told that the school is now capable of having many more events because of this hall, and they extended their gratitude. I was humbled—indeed, being able to contribute to our children’s education is my pleasure!
There are many more schools in Malaysia which are in need of funds and infrastructure. I want to give a shoutout to all those who are capable of contributing: let us bless our children with education, the most precious gift of all. Every little bit goes a long way![/vc_column_text][/vc_column][vc_column column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ width=”1/2″][vc_column_text]MonSpace集团捐献逾35万令吉 为芦骨华小建立多功能礼堂
