【Visit to Johor Bahru, Malacca PeiFeng】
To maintain the autonomy in running the schools and teaching, the Malaysian Chinese community, abandons the
government’s funding. All the school expenses rely on the Chinese community’s own fund-raising activities and sponsorship. This makes the Chinese community cherishes this autonomy even more and safeguards it however they can. Johor Bahru Kuan Rou was founded in 1913. Today, it has five primary schools, three secondary schools, and one university. PeiFeng Secondary School in Malacca was also founded in 1913. We are really impressed by the cultural performance in their school celebration!
From June 8th to 10th, our Chongfu Alumni organized a tour group of 30 people, under the leadership of Chongfu Alumni President Chng Teng Siong and Chongfu Principal Mdm Foo Mui Chuw, to make an exchange program visit. We are warmly welcomed by both schools and the visit provides us a deeper understanding and insight in the school culture.
Generous reception by the principals of the four schools, parents’ group and representatives of our delegation.

The background of this photo shows the treasure of Kuanrou and Dacheng school. It is call the “Panshi”. We have deeply gained valuable insight on how the 2 schools keep our Chinese Culture alive. Hope we will return soon.
