荣获MSSPP杰出运动员 何嘉璇再创高峰

她于11月15日站上了梦寐以求的舞台,手里接过今年年度MSSPP杰出运动员的奖杯与奖状,脸上挂着灿烂而自信的笑容。她的荣誉,渗透着她辛勤的汗水,是她人生中耀眼的轨迹。而她,就是韩江中学的游泳健将—-何嘉璇。

何嘉璇同学于今年的MSSPP比赛中共参加了6个项目,50米蝶泳、100米蝶泳、200米蝶泳、100米蛙泳、200米混合泳及400米混合泳,而她都在所有项目中脱颖而出,获得金奖,荣获6面金牌,展现了惊人又杰出的表现。除此之外,她也于100米蝶泳和200米蝶泳项目中打破了大会纪录,成为大众仰慕的纪录保持者。

何同学表示,当她得知自己获奖时,高兴而感慨的心情立即涌上心头,毕竟她曾经为游泳付出了无数的努力。她从十岁起就开始进行游泳训练,几乎每天都定时进行至少三个小时的游泳训练,唯独星期三得以休息。虽然如此,她的“游泳生涯”并不是一帆风顺的。

她坦言,望着身边同龄的朋友们都可以在家里休息,只有她需要牺牲自己的时间去参与训练,还有来自比赛的压力,她偶尔会感到有些气馁。尽管如此,她依然会振作起来想办法克服种种困难,譬如敞开心怀找父母谈心事,抑或是找朋友和兄弟姐妹们发泄情绪。

虽然何同学并没有在国家队进行训练,她曾代表我国参加游泳比赛。她指出,身为一名优秀的运动员,最基本的本质莫过于要有良好的态度和心态。比赛有分胜负,而每一次都获得胜利是不可能的。或许赢得比赛的人是你的好朋友,但你必须永远保持着良好的心态,承认自己还有进步的空间,绝不可以因为不服输而与好朋友翻脸。当然,天下没有白吃的午餐,只有努力的人才会在比赛中与成功不期而遇。

在当一名游泳健将的路途中,她最想感谢她的父母、家人以及所有朋友一路陪伴着她,给予她支持以及满满的正能量,让她不会在迷失方向时感到彷徨无助。

另外,她也特别感谢她的教练耐心地指导她。因为有了那么好的教练给她传授宝贵的游泳技巧,她才能够拥有今日丰硕的成果。

我校的联课处副主任金紫鹏老师表示,为何嘉璇同学的成就感到十分开心与欣慰,因为她成功突破自我,并提高了学校的名誉。

所谓:“天下没有不劳而获的事”。金老师声明,虽然许多人会误以为获得杰出运动员奖是件极其容易办到的事,他们却不晓得运动员们背后所付出的努力、默默的耕耘。

何同学今日的辉煌成果都是她这7年来逐日的坚持与努力所酿造出来的,而金老师想在此恭贺她, 并提醒她别因为一次的成功而傲慢,应该虚心学习,精益求精。

金老师也劝说,一名卓越的运动员要求的是更快、更高、更强,而希望何同学能时时保持着体育精神,再度成就自我。

金老师也盼望我校的其他运动员们能向何同学看齐,并加紧训练,在纪律方面也需加强,好让他们能在明年的五独中田径锦标赛中凯旋而归。

Anglo-Chinese Independent School’s Visit

On the 7th of November, a Singapore Regional Studies Programme was held. A number of 18 students and two teachers from Anglo-Chinese Independent School came for an educational visit to our school. They arrived at 9a.m in the morning and were welcomed by their host, Mr Samuel Ong.

Firstly, they were escorted to the S.T.E.A.M Lab and took their seats in the front rows. To start off the day, Mr Samuel gave a welcoming speech and introduced our school to the students. Next, a student representative from Singapore went up to give his speech. He thanked us profusely for granting them an educational visit to our school and that they hope to better understand about Malaysia’s education system and history.

After the speeches, Mr Samuel passed it over to Mr Yap Chin Pok for him to speak. Before he started off with the activities, Mr Yap gave a speech on S.T.E.A.M Education which was something completely new to the Singaporean students. He displayed videos about the Makers Fair and as well as a presentation about the Makers Club. He also spoke about the awards they have won with their creative inventions. When Mr Yap was finally finished with his speech, the hands-on activity began. Makers Club members were there to assist the students with the programming activity known as Arduino Uno. Students interacted with the club members, listening to instructions on how to do it. They were extremely interested in carrying out the activity.

At 10:30am, the students moved onto the next activity which was Robotics. The students were brought to a room and asked to take their seats. The president of the Robotics Club began their activity with a speech about robotics and the awards they have won in the competitions they attended. He also introduced the different methods of building a Lego robot and the time it usually takes. The students were also shown a video on the Lego League Competition that the Robotics team attended in the United States. Next, the students were allowed to walk around the room and look at the Robotics machines and Lego robots displayed on the tables.

Lastly, the students were guided to the Cultural Museum. The objective for the students to visit the Cultural Museum was to understand more about the history of Malaysian culture. A tour guide led them around the museum, explaining about the history of cultures and school. The students listened attentively to the detailed explanations given by the tour guide and were fascinated by the museum. After they finished touring the museum, the students gave out souvenirs to the teachers and students that helped them around. With that, their visit to our school was over and they headed off.

Joel Neo, a student from Anglo-Chinese Independent School stated that he found the school nice and interesting. He thinks that the difference between Penang and Singapore is that Singapore is just mainly built up of modern buildings as well as that everything seemed more manufactured and fabricated whereas Penang is more unique, vibrant and lively. Apart from that, he finds the activities that were done very interesting and finds it similar to a competition back in Singapore which is about ideas. He finds it surprising that we invent and create things for fun rather than for intentional competitions or performances. Another student is Loh Hong Ming. He says that our school is very nice and is full of wonderful facilities like labs and more. He believes that the difference between here and Singapore is that Singapore focuses more on manufacturing and factory work. He thinks that today’s hands-on activities were extremely fun. He particularly liked the Robotics activity because he learns Robotics and was happy to see that some students here have the same interests as him. He likes Penang, because he finds Penang unique and fascinating.

Singapore Holy Innocents’ High School Visit

In order to allow students to experience new things and get to learn from our school while gaining more knowledge, one of the earliest Chinese Catholic High School in Singapore, Holy Innocents’ High School, visited Han Chiang High School on the 6th of November. A total of 35 students and 4 teachers participate in this activity. All of them were from the soccer and netball team in their school. They planned to stay in Penang for four days and three nights.

Holy Innocents’ High School was a government-aided Chinese Catholic High School with a long history of 127 years located in Singapore. Their main goal was to nurture students to be compassionate and morally upright citizens, committed to serving God and society. So as to reach their goal, they provided excellent education to their students in all aspects including languages, science, humanity and aesthetics. Besides that, they also had a wide range of co curricular activities for students to choose from such as uniform, sports, performing arts, societies and clubs.

In her speech, Principal Kung Bee Lee gave a warm welcome to all students and teachers of Holy Innocents’ High School for visiting Han Chiang High School for the very first time. She stated that she really appreciated this golden opportunity of students interaction and cultural exchange which would help students to enrich their experiences while improving their social skills. She also pointed out that she was keen to learn more about their school and was looking forward to their outstanding performance. Besides, she hoped that some of our students could pursue their studies in universities of Singapore in the future.

Besides that, Mr Yap Chin Pok gave a presentation to introduce our school’s new technology course STEAM Education to the students and teachers from Holy Innocents’ High School. After that, a quick workshop was held for students to carry out a basic electric project by using a microprocessor called Arduino. They had the oppoturnity to learn how to light up an LED. All of them were very enthusiastic in participating and offered a positive performance.

One of the teachers from Holy Innocents’ High School, Mrs Ku Tin Tin pointed out that although this was her first time visiting Han Chiang High School, she was really impressed about our school and felt honoured to have the chance to learn from our school. She stated that some of the students who came to visit Penang were selected by teachers, but there were also some who volunteered to participate in this activity. Moreover, she mentioned that the students of their school were quite similar to ours as most of our students were also Chinese. What made them special was that they were a mission school which always emphasizes the character of their students, such as humility, integrity, respect and love.

Raphael Chua, a student of Holy Innocents’ High School, stated that the environment in our school is very comfortable as there are various facilities and most importantly, the air conditioner. This was his first time visiting Han Chiang High School and he felt very happy to learn something new which he won’t learn it in class. He was also amazed by the STEAM Education that the presentation had mentioned just now. Therefore, he was looking forward to his next visit to Han Chiang High School.

Zi Ning, a student of Holy Innocents’ High School, pointed out that our school offered a very wide range of quality education for students to discover what they were really interested in, which was very nice. She stated that the workshop was complicated but enjoyable. At the same time, she learned a lot about programming, coding and many more. Other than visiting Han Chiang High School, she mentioned that they also visited some famous attractions in George Town to understand the traditions and cultures in Penang.

Before the event ended, they were brought to the cultural centre to learn about the glorious history of our school as well as Penang. Lastly, the event went smoothly and came to a successful conclusion at 2:30p.m. in the afternoon.

舞蹈团远赴成都国际非物质文化遗产节

于10月14日至23日间,我校韩江中学的舞蹈社受邀前往到中国成都参与了第七届中国成都国际非物质文化遗产节。韩江舞蹈社为此派了6位代表,即陈意、李洁、洪海莹、林昀蓓、杨立闲及杨淑文同学及教练林修端老师踏上远途。他们因此马不停蹄地准备了3支舞蹈,包括《壳动南洋情》,《南洋牡丹》和《甜妞》。

他们除了到中国成都展现才艺,把韩江发扬光大外,也参观了许多名声地如杜甫草堂、武侯祠 、宽窄巷子、熊猫基地及太古里,使得他们在这趟旅途中获益匪浅。

洪海莹
洪海莹同学表示她会想参与此次的演出是为了累计表演经验,同时也可以到外国增广见闻及学习中国丰富的文化特色。在筹备的过程中,虽然他们遇上了极大难关,即参加人数的难题,便将原先20人的舞蹈改为6人的舞蹈,在团员们的团结合作下,成功使6人将20人的编舞跳得有声有色。她亦十分感谢他们的教练,教练不但帮他们编排舞蹈,还要指导他们舞蹈动作、普及他们各种外国的习俗。这次的活动也是教练带着他们奔波劳碌,在他们的身边提醒他们各种事情。

洪同学也透露,本次不是很满意自己的表现,因为她认为尚存许多进步的空间。从中她也获益匪浅,学到了如何时刻保持良好的心态去应付突发状况。另外,她还因此行学到了许多原来没有接触过的东西,让她觉得在学习的道路上是源源不绝的,只有持续的努力学习,才会有能力去做好每一件事情,认真与投入会给自己带来更好的收获。她觉得所有的参赛者都付出了很多、在舞蹈的呈现上也看出了心思,因此没有什么较比的地方,大家都加倍珍惜此次难得的表演机会。

林昀蓓
林昀蓓同学表示她会想参与此次的演出是因为可以见识到别的国家的文化,并体验国际舞台是如何的。在筹备的过程中,她们遇到了团队合作的问题,一些人因不配合而导致了种种的问题发生,但最后大家自己反省后,演出也顺利的进行。她坦言,她最想感谢的人是教练,因为是教练给予了她们机会去参与此次的表演。教练也教会了她如何独立,成长且不去依赖他人,也让她有机会到这么大的舞台表演,认识了很多不同国家的人及他国的文化。她坦言不是很满意自己的表现,因为她没有做到最好,也让教练失望了很多次。

林同学透露,她从中学习到了如何在30秒内换装,也在10分钟内化好妆。她也领悟到了团队合作是多么的重要,尤其是在团体活动中如因少了一个人或者不配合都会影响到整个团队。她认为我们马来西亚的舞蹈与其他国家的舞蹈不一样的地方在于其他国家的舞蹈都是快速的而她们的节奏是偏慢的。不但如此,我校舞蹈社的服装也让很多其他国家的人另眼相看,因为她们的表演服装较为鲜艳,也比其他国家的服装好看。她认为此次去中国成都的表演非常有意义,这些都是无法从口中得到的经验,而是要亲身体会才能换取最珍贵的成果。

杨淑文
杨淑文同学表示非常荣幸可以被选到中国成都参加演出,因为此行只有6个人被选上,是个难能可贵的机会。虽然演出前已无限接近考试期,但她们仍需在每个星期六和日抽空练习舞蹈,而且还需在两天内学好一支新舞,可谓处于刻不容缓的局面。一开始,她透露自己因不够时间练习再碰上考试的来临而感到有点压力,但在大家的努力下也成功的把舞蹈学完,但她觉得还可以做得更好。她最想感谢在旁给予她帮助且支持的朋友,因为没有了她们,她也不会走到今天。杨同学表示这次她们去到中国去了一些历史性的地方,在那里学到了乐器,诸葛亮的东西和以前的人的生活方式等等。

她觉得这次去到中国不够努力,没有好好的练习,不管是比赛还是表演,都要把最好的自己表现出来。不管是在国外或国内表演,她认为身为一名负责人的舞蹈员,自身形象和纪律都应努力兼顾与保持,以避免来自老师和教练的失望。她坦言自己想做一个优秀的舞蹈员,她也为此全力以赴来时刻把最好的表现发挥出来,因而需要付出超常的精力和时间来锻炼舞技。通过本次国际的活动,她看到了来自不同国家的人,觉得每一个国家的传统舞蹈都各具特色,舞蹈亦多姿多彩,令人挪不开双目。

手艺学会访St. Nicolas

人们说,上帝是不公平的。有些人在呱呱落地的时候就是一个被所有人宠着的小公主,在别人都在奋笔疾书的时候她在游山玩水。有些人还没出生,就已经被决定了命运,一辈子被拘束在偏远的小山村,不能受到良好的教育,甚至不能真正体会什么是快乐。但对于先天性失明的人,以上这些所谓的不公平都不值一提。

我相信看到这篇文章的人,都不知道先天性失明是什么样的感觉。看不到高楼林立的城市,漫山遍野的花草,车水马龙的街道,甚至看不到自己挚爱的亲人和爱人。这是一种什么样的痛苦,而这些人又是怎样凭着坚强的意志活到了今天,这是一个应该令所有人都沉思的问题。我们所有人的父母都有着贫富差距,外貌差距,性格差距等等,但是我们父母给了我们健全的五官和四肢,我们都可以看到这个美丽的世界。但是很遗憾,他们却没有机会看到我们能看到的这一切。

韩江中学手艺学会的学生非常同情这些先天性失明的孩子,于是借着义卖会给这些孩子筹款,希望能尽一些微薄之力。今天,我们受邀前去St. Nicolas盲人院进行参观。学生们对于这所特殊的学校内一切事物都感到很惊讶,整个学校环境很好,干净整洁,安静无声。除了参观校内的设施器械,我们还了解到盲人所读的书籍使用特殊的机器制作而成的。二十六个英文字母都有不同数量和排列方式,学生们通过数量和排列方式就可以顺利的读懂书籍。同时,学校还会叫这些学生一些有用的技能:烹饪,按摩和编竹篮等。这样,就算这些学生想去社会上闯荡,也有一些能让他们养活自己的手艺。

通过这次参观,学生们受益匪浅。采访了CE1班的潘贞佞同学,她认为这次参观她收获颇多,了解了盲人是如何看书识字,如何踏上社会养活自己。而且她很希望她尽的微薄之力能帮助这些人。人们说:赠人玫瑰,手有余香。我相信这些学生对盲人学校做的贡献,不止会造福他们,更会给自己的人生增添更大的财富。

韩中学生作品交流展

为了让学生们拥有展出呕心沥血作品的平台,并更投入于艺术及提升艺术造诣和创意力,我校商美班CV2班将于明日起(4日)至6日,举办一场校内学生作品交流展,于体育馆展出学生们一整年的美术作品,供师生们欣赏。

本次的作品交流展一共有530幅来自各班级学生的优秀画作,包括水彩画、素描、服装设计、混合媒介、手工艺品等。来自CV2班的学生也将展出几幅将于明年毕业美术科展的画作,让师生们欣赏他们以时间和精力呈现的画作,并且了解明年毕业美术展阐述的概念。

除此之外,本次的作品交流展也由蔡锦鸿老师、苏梅源老师、刘庆日老师、符智全老师、谢瑞琴老师、郭梅贞老师以及范柳卿老师一起带领。

陈佳威同学(CV2)表示,这已经是他们继百年校庆画展后第二次负责的美术展,对于能够帮助学生们展现美丽优质的作品,还有推广明年毕业美术展的画作,感到非常高兴,也感谢校方给予CV2班如此宝贵的机会。希望学生们可以通过这次的校内学生作品交流展发掘艺术的美,扩展视野,用心感悟艺术所要传达的信息。

林艺铨同学(CV2)指出,感到非常开心能负责这次作品交流展,由于优秀的学生作品多不胜数,因此必须在短时间内分类好所有作品,从这个机会也学到了如何好好把握时间,做事不拖泥带水。
他说,明年毕业美术展将走向不随波逐流的主张思想,以色彩绚丽的涂鸦和错觉艺术为主,并通过视觉上的冲击让学生们领悟作品背后的意义。
为了配合该主题,他们也将突破自我,挑战崭新的画法,以更加特别的方式推广该主题。他坦言,为了这个展出付出了许多努力,过程中也遇到了不少困难。因此,希望学生们会喜欢这次的主题,同时通过这次的作品交流展真正理解他们的创作概念。

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。

借助百年庆典盛宴之际,拿督斯里黄赐兴先生也代表董事会感谢执行顾问丹斯理拿督斯里陈国平局绅为韩江三校捎来校庆礼物。他承诺为韩江小学兴建一座拥有20间课室的教学及行政楼,为韩江小学未来改为全日制教学铺路。最后,他在此为韩江献上了最美好的祝福,希望韩江三校的前景更加辉煌灿烂,树人万万年。

来自姐妹校合艾树强学校的表演者陈家钰同学表示,能够有机会前来韩江与大家庆祝百年校庆,她感到非常开心。她指出,她最后一次到访韩江中学是在去年参加夏令营的时候,而这次主要是为了给大家呈现他们所准备的中国和泰国舞蹈,希望可以通过舞蹈传承中国及泰国文化。她在此也祝贺韩江三校百年校庆快乐,并在未来的日子里可以永续发展。

校友陈崇文先生表示,这是他特地返回母校出席此盛宴,与旧同学们一起庆祝韩江百年校庆。他感到非常开心,因为可以见到许久不见的同学们,与他们齐聚一堂话当年。他坦言,时隔那么久,韩江校园里的建筑与设备比以前进步,学生们也多才多艺,呈现的表演都非常好看。他在此希望韩江三校继续努力向前进,培养下一代。

韩江三校百年校庆盛宴于晚上十点圆满落幕。此盛宴进行得十分顺利,而它将会是全体韩江人难忘的美好回忆。最后,在此祝愿韩江三校百年校庆快乐,蓬勃发展,再创辉煌。

 

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.
