Just a week after sending off long-serving physics teacher, Leong Kok Chen, Anglo-Chinese School bade farewell to its principal, Cheng Sai Lak. Cheng, who obtained his secondary education in SMK Anderson, was the principal of ACS for 6 years. However, few know that he was once the school’s chemistry teacher. During his tenure as principal, the school witnessed two mega projects which got the school into the Malaysian Book of Records and helped raised funds.
Teachers and students were entertained to wushu and a dhol and tabla performances by students. Retired physics teacher, Leong even dedicated a song to him. Cheng noted that ACS is the epitome of 1Malaysia.
Present were representatives from the Perak Education Department, Chairman of the Board of Governors, Lai Thian Seong and the Parent-Teacher Association Chairman, Dato’ Dr. Balaravi Pillai.
In his farewell speech, Cheng urged students to strive hard and persevere, regardless of their background. Incidentally, ACS is one of the top schools in Perak in the 2010 STPM examination.
