韩江三校与印尼棉兰棉中中小学学校签署合作协议书

于2019年10月12日,印尼棉兰棉中中小学及崇文中小学莅临我校,并由韩江三校教职员代表热烈欢迎。而贵校远方到来的主要目的是为了签署两校之间的合作协议书,义结金兰成为姐妹校。此仪式于上午十时在韩大礼堂举行。

播放了韩江三校的介绍影片后,便由韩江三校董事长拿督斯里黄赐兴先生致词。首先,他热烈欢迎并感谢远方贵宾来到槟城参加韩江的百年校庆。他也提及,自己曾与陈国平局绅到棉兰棉中学校到访,表示那次拜访让他深受感触,认为倘若没有苏用发先生的办校精神,华校并不能顺利办成。而他也奉劝韩江董事会改日应该到印尼棉兰棉中中小学取经,互助互利。他认为,唯有这样才能学会华族对教育的贡献,有朝一日培养值得韩江骄傲的学生。拿督斯里黄赐兴先生也在此强调教育的重要性,并希望他能够与棉兰当地社团尽量彼此辅助,共存共有。

接着,印尼苏北华社联谊会暨亚洲国际友好学院董事长苏用发先生也给予一些金玉良言。苏先生在致词中简单地讲解了印尼教育的过去、今日及未来,好让在座的各位了解发展的情况。他提到,由于印尼在1965年经历了一番政治混乱,而导致近1500所华文学校关闭。他表示自己得感谢韩江董事会在那困苦之时无条件又积极地接待棉兰学子。他认为韩江与棉中拥有切不断的关系,因为没有韩江的欣然接受,就没有今日的棉中。苏先生表示,如今的年轻人似乎已忘了自己还拥有华人的根,这是让他感到内疚的事。因而所以,他认为应该推动中华文化的传承,这也是他对中文教育的一个交代。

2007年,苏先生建立了苏北华联,而能够从当初的26个社团的加入到如今的150个社团,他也深感感激。当中,潮州会馆给予最大的支持,而潮州公会便是苏北华联的一个合作伙伴。他提到,苏北华联曾收到大马星洲日报的爱心捐款,而当自己在吉隆坡星洲大厦接过120万美金的支票时,不禁让他为此动容,毕竟这120万是马来西亚人对印尼苏北华人的中华文化的一种肯定。而2008年建立的亚洲国际友好学院,倘若没有槟城华侨的支持,就没有坚持华文教育的推动,更不可能有崇文学校,一个关闭50年的学校,在今天的宏立。他也感谢丹斯理拿督斯里陈国平局绅参与学校的落成典礼。另外,他也希望到访的三校校长能够抓住机会,在我校学习并取经。最后,他表示,只要把华文教育办好,中华民族就会有希望,继而把薪火代代相传。

致辞后,韩江三校与棉兰棉中中小学的各贵宾签署合作协议书。签署仪式完成后,便进行移交模拟支票仪式,由印尼棉兰崇文中小学杜保国立市长移交支票予拿督斯里黄赐兴先生,而此仪式的见证人是丹斯理拿督斯里陈国平局绅及苏用发先生。诸位校长也陪同参与仪式。

紧接着便是交换纪念品仪式,由拿督斯里黄赐兴先生赠送纪念品予苏用发先生,再由苏用发先生赠送纪念品予拿督斯里黄赐兴先生,而见证人便是韩江三校执行顾问丹斯理拿督斯里陈国平局绅。仪式完成后,各位贵宾便参观韩江三校校舍,便于道别前在林连登铜像前拍大合照。

来自亚洲国际友好学院的学生欧阳黛莎认为,韩江是一所好的学校,而她这次的到访可以让她学习到很多新知识、开阔眼界。她也称赞我校很宽大,校舍也很发达。除此,欧阳黛莎表示,她主要学习汉语的推动力在于,汉语的地位在如今的世界越来越重要。来自印尼亚齐的她,表示,那边的孩子从小一般只学阿拉伯语,而多达99%的学子没有学汉语。积极的她便因为希望在往后的日子能够在一所华校修读而开始学习汉语,而从2015年开始学习汉语的她如今已经毕业了。她表示,以后想到中国读书及发展。

棉兰棉中中小学学校总校长陈慰宇女士表示,这是她第二次来到韩江到访,而她第一次到访的时候是在2012年的七月。她认为,今日的韩江与2012年的韩江有了很多的变化。陈女士认为,能够参加韩江百年校庆,她很激动。她提到,自己身边的朋友曾来到韩江教书,因此她对韩江又熟悉但又新鲜;他也表示韩江能够坚持100年也不是一件容易的事。另外,她表示,当两校成为姐妹校后,两校的学生可以得到更多的学习机会,两校也可以彼此学习、分享。最后,她希望两校学生能够一天去到各校交流。

当天早上,除了棉兰棉中中小学董事长陈鹤秋先生、印尼苏北华社联谊会暨亚洲国际友好学院董事长苏用发先生、棉兰棉中中小学总校长陈慰宇女士的出席之外,韩江三校的执行顾问丹斯理拿督斯里陈国平局绅以及韩江三校董事长拿督斯里黄赐兴先生也在场。韩大校长马国辉博士、韩中校长江美俐硕士、韩小校长李凤珠女士,与三校的教职员们也出席了这场仪式。

A hundred years ago in 1919, Han Chiang School was founded by the Teochew Association and Mr Lim Lean Teng, standing on Chulia Street with a modest facade. A hundred years later, although having been moved to Lim Lean Teng Street and equipped with improved facilities, Han Chiang School continues to provide wholesome and quality education to thousands of students from various countries such as Malaysia, Thailand, Korea, and Japan.

On 12th October 2019, in conjunction with our school’s centenary celebration, the three Han Chiang Schools jointly held a grand dinner in the field of Han Chiang High School. The aim was to unite each and every member of our school, be it students, alumni, or teachers, to celebrate the wonderful occasion of the centennial anniversary of our school, one of the greatest milestones in the history of Han Chiang. The dinner received an exemplary response from the students and faculty with approximately a whopping number 10,000 attendees. The event kicked off at 7 pm sharp.

The Finance Minister of Malaysia, YB Lim Guan Eng, started off his speech with the best wishes from the Malaysian government upon the success of our school. He stated that having experienced innumerable ups and downs along our journey towards the centennial year, our accomplishment was worth everyone’s respect and admiration. As a gift for our centennial anniversary, the Ministry of Finance decided to allocate us with RM100,000, in the hope that our school will continue to strive in the future. “Although this is not considered as a huge sum of money, it is of great significance as this indicates that the government has acknowledged the contribution of independent schools in our country.”

During his speech, the Chairman of the board of directors, Dato Seri Ooi Soo Hing, stated that Han Chiang School has been faced with countless obstacles and difficulties in the past 100 years. However, the members of our school managed to overcome all of those by maintaining the spirit of persistence and perseverance. The fruitful outcome of the three Han Chiang schools wouldn’t have been completed without the contribution of our ancestors who worked hard and dedicated their lives to the growth of Han Chiang.

“Education is the foundation of everything.” Dato Seri Ooi Soo Hing also mentioned that in the process of cultivating and instilling the all-round virtues in the education system, we must also courageously face the rapidly transforming era of technology. Whether it be the slogan Mr Lim Lean Teng pronounced during the groundbreaking ceremony 100 years ago, or the motto we are using now, they all carry the same meaning, that is, paving the road for the next generation. He would also like to use this opportunity to express his gratitude to the Executive Advisor, Tan Sri Dato’ Seri Tan Kok Ping, who had generously agreed to construct a new building for Han Chiang Primary School consisting of 20 classrooms.

The gala dinner commenced with the singing of the National Anthem, Penang State Anthem and Han Chiang Primary School anthem. After that, a vocal performance by Han Chiang Alumni was presented. Their melodious voice enveloped the field and won a huge round of applause from the audience. There were also other performances such as an enthralling skit named ‘The Pride of Han Chiang’ prepared by students from Han Chiang University College, a dance performance with the title of ‘Han Chiang Airlines’ presented by Han Chiang High School’s choreography dance club and a choir performance by students from the three Han Chiang schools. Besides that, our sister school, Khunnatam Wittaya, also graced us with their appearance on that day. They sent a total of 32 students to perform a Chinese dance and a Thai dance which were contrasting to the usual performances as they were filled with the traditional culture from Thailand.

During the long stretch of performances, there was a six-course meal provided. A mock cheque presentation also took place during which YB Lim Guan Eng handed over the funds issued by the Ministry of Finance. In the meantime, there was an exhibition held in the hall to display the projects of the students during the past year to allow the public to have a better understanding regarding the activities included in our daily schooling routine.

Madam Khaw Hoay Lean, an alumnus who graduated in the year 1975, stated that she felt overjoyed and excited as this was a rare opportunity to gather with her old schoolmates. She described the event as enjoyable and entertaining as the performances were really wonderful. She also mentioned that the facilities of our school have improved immensely compared to her schooling days a few decades ago. She wished the best for Han Chiang School and hoped that it will continue to pursue for the better.

Mr Tan Chong Boon, a Han Chiang alumnus, stated that he returned to Penang from Hong Kong especially to attend this centennial event. As this was the first time he stepped foot into Han Chiang since a long time ago, he was touched when he witnessed our school’s improvement and changes, especially the teaching materials which were taken to great heights in the educational world. He hoped that Han Chiang will continue to work harder and nurture a whole new generation.

Warunee Sae-Chang, one of the performers from Khunnatam Wittaya, stated that this was the second time she visited Han Chiang High School, with the Summer Course being the first visit. She was elated that she got to celebrate our centennial anniversary together. They had prepared two different dances, hoping to make known the Thailand culture to us Malaysians. She wished to congratulate Han Chiang on its hundredth year celebration.

At 10 o’clock in the evening, the Han Chiang Centenary Gala Dinner was wrapped up with a colourful and majestic display of fireworks. Everyone left with another sweet memory created in Han Chiang.

他说,韩江学校能有三校并立的完整教育体系得来不易,是国内第3所获得政府批准升格的民办学校,因此会坚守回归教育育人本质,用心教研、秉承育人为本、德育为先的精神,发展韩江传媒大学学院。

韩江校友会总会长张正海指出,韩江人要感谢母校韩江,因为母校是大家展翅高飞、冲刺人生目标的起点,精神寄托的家园,人生才能绽放光芒。韩江校友的精神是来自于韩江,而维护源远流长的韩江精神更是韩江校友会总会的宗旨之一。团结的成果是属于韩江校友们的努力与合作,而总会是属于全体韩江校友,荣耀是属于大家。
