SMJK Yuk Choy hosted a joint Teachers’ Day celebration together with SJK (C) Yuk Choy, SJK (C) Perak and SMJK Perempuan Perak on Friday, July 6 at Syeun grand ballroom.

The aim was to double the joy and foster a closer relationship among the staff of the four schools.

Attended by 490, inclusive of retired teachers, it is an annual affair in which the four Chinese schools take turns to host.

“I would like to thank the teachers for encouraging the young ones to continuously outdo themselves. In this new era of education, we should prioritise innovative teaching methods as the kids are not just exposed to books but the web as well. It’s never easy being a teacher nowadays,” William Chan, chairman of Parent Teacher Association for SMJK Yuk Choy stated.

Running on the theme “Be Checkered”, the dinner ended with the naming of the best dressed in that classic pattern.

Besides lucky draw, guests were entertained by the 24 Seasons Drums troupe, a Chinese traditional dance and night-long karaoke session.

Perak has 185 national Chinese primary schools, 17 national Chinese secondary schools and nine private Chinese secondary schools.
