Re­port lodged over UEC

The Sun (Malaysia) - - NEWS WITHOUT BORDERS - BY KONG SEE HOH

SM CHONG HWA KUAN­TAN has lodged a po­lice re­port to en­sure its stu­dents can sit for the UEC (Uni­fied Ex­am­i­na­tion Cer­tifi­cate) ex­am­i­na­tion peace­fully, Chi­nese press re­ported yes­ter­day.

Con­firm­ing this in a state­ment on Wed­nes­day, the chair­man of the school’s board of gov­er­nors, Tan Sri Pheng Yin Hwa, said it “had no other choice”, and hoped that its first batch of 113 Ju­nior Mid­dle Three stu­dents could fo­cus their at­ten­tion on pre­par­ing for the ex­am­i­na­tion and sit for it with­out any in­ter­rup­tion.

He said some quar­ters with ul­te­rior mo­tives had been spread­ing mes­sages detri­men­tal to the school on so­cial me­dia.

Some of them hinted that there would be a “sec­ond wave of ac­tion”, in­clud­ing hold­ing protests out­side the school, and sug­gested that cer­tain par­ties should take the school to court for en­rolling its stu­dents for the UEC ex­am­i­na­tion, which is con­ducted for stu­dents of Chi­nese independent schools by Chi­nese ed­u­ca­tion group Dong Jiao Zong. “The school’s board of gov­er­nors has de­cided to lodge a re­port to pre­vent any un­to­ward in­ci­dents.”
