Ambassador of the People’s Republic of China to Brunei Darussalam Yu Hong paid a visit to Chung Hwa School Kiudang (CHSK) on Thursday.

Yu Hong was welcomed by Chairman of the Board of Governors of CHSK Sii Tai Chuong, members of the school board and Principal Loo Shee Yun.

Sii thanked the ambassador and the Chinese Embassy in Brunei Darussalam for giving the teachers and principal the opportunity to participate in professional and cultural training courses in Guangzhou and Beijing last year.

He hoped for further collaboration with the embassy to improve the quality of Chinese education in CHSK.

“Early this year, I watched a video made by Chung Hwa School Kiudang students cheering for Wuhan’s fight against COVID-19 which left a deep impression on me. I would like to thank the teachers and students for their love and support for Wuhan,” Yu Hong said.
