SJK (C) Sam Chai held a dinner at the Garden Restaurant to celebrate Teachers’ Day on Sunday, August 25. The occasion was attended by about 250 teachers, staff members and guests. During the dinner, long service awards were presented to Ms Leong Wai Ling and Ms Wong Lai Fong for their dedicated service to the school. Both have served 20 and 15 years, respectively.
Mementos were given to retiring Assistant Headmaster, Mr Hew Tet Choy, teacher Ms Teh Ai Chin while guests were entertained to dances by members of a local dance troupe.
The school took this opportunity to launch the Sam Chai Charity Night 2013 which will be held on Saturday, October 26, 2013 at the Poi Lam (Suwa) High School grounds. The event is to raise funds for the school’s ongoing building project consisting of a 4-storey block to replace the two existing termite-ridden wooden blocks which were built in 1951 and 1961.
According to Mr Lee Chau Ju, Chairman of the Board of Governors, the school is still short of about RM3 million to complete the project. He said that a sum of RM2350 was collected and donated to the school by staff of Taiko Plantations when its appeal for funds was highlighted in Ipoh Echo recently.
Lee beckons readers who are interested to donate to this worthy cause to visit the school for an overview of the building project. He can be reached at 05-254 0087 and 05-241 5483.
