In many old premises in Malaysia and Singapore with Chinese connections, they often have arches with Chinese architecture. They have famous people penning the calligraphy. This one was erected in the 60s, and at the school I taught in Binatang, called Kai Chung school. This view is taken from the school.
In 1963, Sarawak and Sabah n and Singapore joined Malaya to form Malaysia. Bahasa Malaysia became the official language. One side is taken from the road. The new words just say the name of the school.
忠 Loyalty 孝 Filial piety 仁 Benevolence 义 Righteousness
My ex student Francis wrote this words for me this morning. I verified with him, Francis, did you write them? Wow! just to confirm, how come the 4th word on the arch has a XIN, heart next to the ear, and yours has a different word. One of the Chinese virtues taught to students is humility. Francis said he hasn't done calligraphy for 30 years. What a great job he has done.
