Tsun Jin High School (Chinese: 吉隆坡循人中学) is a Chinese independent high school situated along Jalan Loke Yew in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, established in 1955. It was founded as an expansion of Tsun Jin Primary School, founded in 1913.
History[edit | edit source]
The early 20th century witnessed a sweeping worldwide trend to establish schools. With the aim to educate and to equip the younger generation, the prudent predecessors of The Selangor Fui Chiu Association thus founded the Tsun Jin Primary School in 1913.
In the early 1950, responding to the urgency to provide students with a holistic Chinese education and to pass on the excellent Chinese culture, the Tsun Jin Board of Governors thus endeavored to establish an independent Chinese high school. The high school section was officially in operation in 1955.
In 1962, many local Chinese schools opted for systemic reformation. Convinced of the unique and significant mission of the independent Chinese high school, the Tsun Jin Board of Governors courageously resolved to stay in the noble course. Manifesting the great spirit of self-reliance and striving against all odds, various construction plans have been sequentially and successfully implemented.
Infrastructure[edit | edit source]
Today, the school's facilities include a library, 8 badminton courts, an air-conditioned hall with a capacity of 800 persons which provides a venue for concerts and lectures, and a main hall built in 2009 having a capacity of 2,500 persons. A music room is usually occupied by the choir society.
Among the many clubs and societies are the Police Cadet, Editorial Club, St.John Ambulance, Boy's Scout and Girl's Guide, Orchestra, Debate, and Elocution (debate and elocution are divided by three languages). The timetable for this school is fixed except for assembly days.
Besides that, the school has celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015 and the school held a performance on 25 and 26 July 2015. The school hired Mr Beh Kim Chuan as the Head Director of the performance.
Achievements[edit | edit source]
Tsun Jin High School's students are known for their exceptional skills in the field of elocution. Their Chinese Debate team captain Justin has won the Asian Debate Cup several times while their English Debate team has won several awards over the years including the HELP University 2014 International Chinese Secondary School Debate Competition.
The Tsun Jin basketball team has also made a name for themselves as being one of the top high school basketball teams in the state. They have won numerous awards over the years including the Ruby Cup, Selangor-Kuala Lumpur Chinese Independent High School Inter-school Tournament and many others. Team members have to go through an audition and are carefully chosen by both the coach and teachers.
