Tuaran SJK (C) Chen Sin school Management board




The Management board of the SJK (C) Chen Sin, Tuaran is having a tough time due to the unsettled board member election. The recent board election gave rise to two separate groups claiming power to the school board. The most recent incident is the opening and closing of the new school canteen, which caused great inconvenience to both the parents and students in Tuaran.

The DAP Tuaran branch chairman, Peter Liew Fui Ken was at hand to probe into the matter as requested by some concerned parents from the school. He visited the school canteen with some parents, and he also brought along the Sabah DAP chief Dr. Hiew King Cheu and the Vice chairman Edward Ewol Mujie. The school kids will suffer when the school reopens on the 15th June without a new canteen. The parents urge the management board to resolve the matter and don’t put the interest of the kids and their parents at stake.

Peter Liew fully sympathized with the situation in the school, and he said what is happening now is due to the unsettled quarrel within the management board of the school. There are two groups of people claiming power over the management board. The quarrel had been there for as long as 6 years now. There seem to be no chance to resolve the matter, because both sides are not giving in. The most recent election of the board members had another reversed take over by the group who had lost the election. There seems to be no settlement or resolution to who is the rightful school board member. The Sabah Education department is urged to intervene and probe into the matter and assist to resolve as soon as possible. All school management boards are to be registered with the education department and strictly follow the Instrument and Guide lines provided under the Education Act.

Peter Liew also urges both party to sit down together to discuss and solve the differences for the sack of education. A fresh election can be held to elect the righteous board members, and the Tuaran people will be the best to select and elect those who are genuine in serving the school. The education department must send a independent representative, not the principal, to witness and control the election of the management board member. Then, we shall see a true and good board can be formed.

斗亚兰振新小学的学校管理委员会
由于不稳定的董事会,斗亚兰振新小学的学校董事部面临问题。 在最近的董事部选举中出现两个不同的团队,同时声称有掌管该学校的权力。 在进行该学校新食堂的启用时又受到阻止,对该学校的学生和家长造成极大的不便。

斗亚兰民主行动党支部主席刘辉坚受到该校家长的要求协助以求解决该项问题。 他和家长们前往巡视该学校的新食堂,陪同他一起有沙巴民主行动党州主席邱庆洲博士和州副主席爱德华慕吉。 这所学校的学生在六月十五日开学时,将面对没有食堂使用的问题。 家长们敦促该校的董事部,尽快解决这个问题,不要为了某些争论而忽略学生们的需要。

刘氏十分同情该校所面对的问题,他说发生这样的事情是因为该校的董事部成员内部的争夺,其职位悬而未决所引起的。 目前有两个团队声称都拥有董事部的职权,而该争夺已经有长达六年之久。 似乎无法解决,因为双方都不愿妥协。 在最近的董事部选举中,为了扭转接管该职权而发生争夺。 至今没有任何解决方案或谁是合法的学校董事部成员。 沙巴教育部被呼吁要求干预和探讨该项问题,并且尽快协助解决。所有学校的董事部必须要向教育部注册,并且要严格按照教育法令的规定和指南来管理学校。

刘辉坚敦促该董事部双方的当事人坐下来,为了教育应该好好的讨论和解决问题,重新进行选举以选出新的董事部。 斗亚兰人最清楚谁才是真正为学校服务的人。 如有重新选举,教育部必须派遣一位主持监选的官员(并非校长)来进行该重选。 我们才可以看到一个真正健全的董事部。
