Chung Hwa School Kiudang (CHSK) marked a milestone as a Chinese primary school in the Tutong District, celebrating its 70th anniversary at the school’s hall on Saturday.

Legislative Council member Yang Berhormat Lau How Teck was the guest of honour.

CHSK began in 1951 and celebrates its 72nd anniversary, as the 70th anniversary celebration was put on hold due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Chairman of the Board of Governors Kelvin Pong Ming Onn said the 70th anniversary celebration was initiated by the former board of governors under the leadership of former chairman Sii Tai Chuong and former vice chairmen Sam Ying Kok and Yong Teck Foo.

He expressed gratitude to the former leaders who initiated the celebration, as well as to the current Vice Chairmen Wong Gia Kiong and George Wong Ling Ming Principal Loo Shee Yun for their leadership in the preparations leading up to the event.

The chairman also gave recognition to the the directors and teachers who worked hard to ensure the event’s success.

He also made a special mention of appreciation to Lau Sheau Yuan as the dinner’s sponsor as well as Jackson Ting.

The event saw several awards of appreciations presented to sponsors, permanent honourary advisors and honourary advisors by the guest of honour as well as colourful stage performances by students.

CHSK has gone through 70 years of development with the former and current board of governors contributing to improving the teaching and learning environment at the school as well as upgrading facilities and infrastructure while nurturing responsible and talented students.

This was underscored by the 70th anniversary committee chairman Yong Teck Foo who said that with the society becoming more challenging and demanding, the development of education must keep up with the pace of globalisation for students to be competitive.

“The transformation of the future of the school depends upon our principal, school consultants and teachers.

“The school board gives full support to our school consultants to assist and advise our principal and teachers in improving the quality of education in CHSK.”

Principal Loo Shee Yun said the school achieved much because of the support and cooperation from the past and present board of governors, teachers, parents, alumni and the Chinese community.

The school has also gone through changes since 2018 complementing the school organisation, enhance the administrative and academic aspects and to tailor teaching and learning tools in line with SPN21 towards achieving Brunei Vision 2035.

“The school will continue to strive for many years to come by providing professional development trainings for teachers to gain knowledge and new teaching strategies.

“I believe the school’s platinum jubilee anniversary is the starting point in achieving greater success and many more years of achievement in the future.”
