Report lodged over UEC
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.”
