ABC Letter P for people



The people's school.

People's/Citizen school, Koong Ming/Citizen School is connected to the Chans and the Kongs. My grandfathers on both sides raised money to build the school. They served in the school board. My cousin Kong Chek King is the secretary of the Board of Management.
In 2013, we went to visit the school, and the principal explained the financial situation of the school. Last year, I read a write-up about him attending funerals to raise fund for the school.
The headmaster of Citizen Secondary School of Rejang River has passed away last Friday 75yrs old Hii Sui Chung
He worked as a headmaster n gardener and general worker every day without pay really very great

a person that deserves our deepest admiration... education is not only one of the most important things for man but sadly enough also one of the most expensive things

Schools are so important!
We sometimes have problems getting enough funding for schools here in the USA, too.
