光华国中风波- a student's view

Been really busy for the past few days. Not just with the monthly tests, but with the school also. Here's what everybody's been talking about in school since Tuesday.

〔巴生28日讯〕本报探悉,巴生光华国中校长蔡炎均疑受近日来的光华国中风波波及,将在4月1日始被调职。

消息指出,教育部日前已作出有关的调职决定,并将在4月1日开始生效,但蔡炎均的新职位有待确定。

据悉,教育部是以其他理由作出有关调职决定,但相信光华风波是主要的导火线。

本报探悉,教育部高层一领袖日前已向某些光华人士披露有关消息,并希望有关决定能逐渐平息光华国中连日来的风波。

《南洋商报》尝试联络当事人蔡炎均,但后者只向记者留下一句“对不起”后就挂断电话,不愿证实此事。

雪州教育局公关主任佐哈里受询时说,据本身所了解目前未接获有关指示,不过任何校长的调职决定都必须通过教育部的批准。

针对光华国中董事部重组后的12人名单,他说当局现阶段将重新检讨当时“同意”的新名单决定,目前在研究所有的资料,然后提呈报告予教育部以作定夺。

光华国中家教协会主席兼董事拿督郑文记受询时,否认董事接获当局指示,之前批准的新董事部名单将进行重新检讨。

至于针对蔡炎均将被调职一事,郑文记指目前尚未接获有关通知。

巴生27日讯-巴生光华国中校友拿督陈昤池呼吁校外其他组织手下留情,避免发放使事情恶化的言论。

陈昤池也是马华加埔3里支会主席。他说,他对有关母校的纠纷感到心痛。他认为,煮豆燃豆箕,继续争执只会让“仇者快、亲者痛”,因此他呼吁涉及三造顾及校誉、家长和学生的利益,停止通过报界媒体互相攻击,应迅速及积极地进行内部协商,让误会获得圆满解决。

陈昤池说,推动华教波折重重,爱护华教人士不应百上加斤,使到有热忱推动华教的人士心灰意冷。

“黄华民在巴生华社德高望众,在光华国中发展史上的贡献不可抹煞。拿督郑文记也积极推动国中发展立下汗马功劳,其诚意不可质疑。蔡炎均校长任劳任怨为校服务,深获家长和学生爱戴,三人都是我敬佩的,董事部、家协和校方的贡献功不可没。”

爱护光华珍惜光华

陈昤池说,光华国中成为全国多间学校在发展校务的典范,这个殊荣得来不易,爱护光华国中的人士要加以珍惜。


Sorry for the Chinese words. But i simply don't bother to translate them. It's just that we are going to lose our beloved school principal.

Students and parents went on strike on Tuesday. You'd know if you read the Wednesday Chinese newspapers. I didn't join the crowd 'cos i'm halfway through my BM monthly test. But from what i heard from my friends, it was just rallying and police officers inside the school, 'cos they wouldn't allow students out of the school grounds. Hmm... hope i didn't miss much. It lasted around 15 minutes and students started going back to their classes, reluctantly of course.

I'm not sure what exactly happened, it's sort of all complicated between our school principal and the 董事部. Or at least something like that. I'm not that sure about what really happened, 'cos there're sooo many rumours flying around i'm not sure which is true. So i can't give my opinion on this issue, not until i'm clear with what's going on.

We, that is SMJK Kwang Hua's students were given a form for our parents to sign to support Mr Chua Yam Ken. Mum signed it all right. I think dad still don't know about this. They didn't mention it in the English newspapers, did they?

Me and two of my friends interviewed Mr Chua when we were in Form 2, as part of a project. From what i learned during that one-hour interview, Mr Chua is highly ambitious. He has lots of blueprints of projects he planned to do but has yet to get approval from others-you know who-. And it wasn't just talk but no action. Several projects he mentioned to us have been finished since then.

I mean, he contributed so much to our school. A new Dataran Kwang Hua, a "cyber-cafe" where students can surf the net using coupons purchased from the school, new blocks to house students. If it wasn't for him, we 4S3 will still be having lessons in the laboratory.

Anyway, the new principal's probably going to come to school tomorrow. We'll see.
