About This Book

Throughout human history, whenever people moved to a new land they sought to preserve practices from their place of origin, whether that was in the form of their language, religion, culture or cuisine. Wherever Chinese have settled in significant numbers outside of China, they established schools in a bid to retain their mother tongue. Within the reality of Malaysia's multi-ethnic fabric, the Chinese community has also sought to preserve its cultural roots through vernacular education. This photo-journal attempts to describe the Malaysian Chinese primary school system's challenging journey over the last century. Legally defined as "National-Type" Chinese Primary Schools, SJKCs have become a social institution with a significant role in nation building in a multi-ethnic setting.
