Zhonghua Secondary School - History


Zhonghua Secondary was established in 1911 in response to Dr Sun Yat Sen's suggestion for schools to be established for girls. The school was founded by Mr Tay Peng Teng, Mr Puan Yeow Pong and the Chinese community. The school was originally at Mohamad Sultan Road.

In its 90 years, the school has moved five times:

  • In 1925, it moved to Niven Road and was named Chung Hwa Girls’ High School. To cope with the increased enrollment, it shifted to Bartley Road in 1951 and secondary classes were conducted at these larger premises.
  • In 1967, a four-storey block was built, comprising the General Office, Staff Room, Home Economics Unit as well as the Science Block, Geography Room, the Music Room and the AVA Theatrette.
  • In 1987, the school moved to Serangoon New Town at Serangoon Avenue 4 and was renamed Zhonghua Secondary School.
  • In 1999, a new school complex at Serangoon Avenue 3 costing an estimated $23 million was completed. In 2008, construction works began on the Multi-Purpose Sports Complex.

Famous quotes containing the word history:

    Boys forget what their country means by just reading “the land of the free” in history books. Then they get to be men, they forget even more. Liberty’s too precious a thing to be buried in books.
    Sidney Buchman (1902–1975)

    Properly speaking, history is nothing but the crimes and misfortunes of the human race.
    Pierre Bayle (1647–1706)

    I saw the Arab map.
    It resembled a mare shuffling on,
    dragging its history like saddlebags,
    nearing its tomb and the pitch of hell.
    Adonis [Ali Ahmed Said] (b. 1930)
