“Gathering on 95th Anniversary & Dating You on Centenary”
The Grand Dinner of CHIHS 95th Anniversary
The Rationale of Fundraising for the Construction of Multipurpose Block
For the building of a nation, education is undeniably its founding stone. To develop to become a strong nation, technology and human resourcefulness are vital and indispensable. In Malaysian context, education provided by Chinese independent schools contributes to national development and social progress. Shouldering the mission of conserving cultural heritage and to be innovative, we still have a long way to go.
Years past fleetingly and Chong Hwa Independent High School Kuala Lumpur (CHIHSKL) experienced evolutionary changes. Having been through the stages of founding, development, relocation and expansion, Chong Hwa Independent High School KL now celebrates her 95th Anniversary. Thankfully, after this arduous, long and hard educational journey, CHIHSKL is now one of the major Chinese independent high schools in Malaysia. Retrospectively, our school truly owes much to the commitment and sacrifices made by our farsighted forefathers, the strong support given by our alumni and the community of enthusiastic people. Thus, on behalf of the school, we would like to express our heartfelt gratitude.
From time immemorial, running a school is comparable to governing a nation. Today, CHIHSKL has an enrolment of more than five thousand teachers and students. Our teachers are committed and conscientious; our students are well-rounded in all aspects of academic, artistic and in co-curricular activities. They deliver excellent results and outstanding performances even among the international arena.
However, we must not rest on our laurels and allow complacency to set in as educational work is ever challenging. In recent years, the mushrooming of modern and well-equipped selected high schools, international and private schools has posed enormous pressure on us. We can no longer confine ourselves to our present status but instead, to be innovative in order not to find ourselves dropping behind.
In the future, CHIHSKL is committed in keeping abreast of the times, upholding the philosophy of education needed for the future development of the school. We will implement our five-year blueprint in building a multipurpose complex which can accommodate administration, management, teaching and extracurricular activities. The construction of this new quadrangular complex is also based on advanced environmental concepts of energy saving and carbon reduction. We will also update and enhance our software and hardware devices.
The new multipurpose complex will greatly facilitate school administration, promotion of the new school policy and strategies, so as to cultivate and form students who possess the following traits: a Scientific Mind, a Heart of Humanity, a Global Perspective, a Passion for Chinese Culture, an Enthusiasm to Contribute and a Robust and Healthy Personality”. Through education, we aim to nurture our students more holistically in the following dimensions: moral, intellectual, physical, interpersonal, aesthetic, industrious, and spiritual.. We also aim to create a campus ethos that is rigorous, practical, diligent, harmonious and innovative. As the whole construction is estimated to cost about 60 million Ringgit, in conjunction with the school’s 95th Anniversary, we are conducting a series of celebrations for fundraising. We sincerely request all concerning sectors to donate generously, so that we can accomplish this grand project and witness the opening of the magnificent multipurpose complex as we celebrate our centenary.
The climax of the 95th Anniversary celebration series is scheduled on December 20th, which is the Grand Dinner that will be held within school campus.
We cordially invite all of you to grace this auspicious occasion which is themed “Gathering on 95th Anniversary and Dating You on Centenary”. We urge all our dear alumni to actively respond to our invitation, welcome home to the warm bosom of your alma mater and give your moral as well as generous support. We hope that all community leaders, business people, philanthropists, benefactors, alumni and parents can join the festivities, and be generous sponsors for the banquet, enthusiastically giving donations, in aiding the school to accomplish this urgent and important construction goals for our next new milestone, thus providing us with uplifting and inexhaustible strength. Let us endeavor to make our school to be global oriented, so that everyone can benefit from our achievements and truly be proud of CHIHSKL.
The mission in managing a school is indeed an enormous task; more so in trying to maintain it. At this juncture of the school’s journey of development, we aim to maximize the opportunity to brave the challenges. Hence, we sincerely anticipate support from all sectors. Truly, we are most appreciative of your generous donations and sponsorships. We therefore pledge to maximize the effectiveness of our school as an educational institution so as to fully cater the needs of our beloved and diligent students. This is the most favorable era, an era of swift advancement in science and technology; an era that is truly ours.
Whosoever is more thoroughly prepared, he then is the one who can journey better and farther.
Hence, your care, concern and support for our school will surely help realize our dreams: to achieve our educational goals and to prepare a young, fine and smart generation for Malaysia, our beloved motherland.
Finally, we pledge to endeavor in paving our young graduates to reach all corners of the earth, as shining examples of learning, serving and contributing in various fields.
Thanking you from the bottom of our hearts.
