History of Chung Wah Chinese School
Imagine coming to a foreign land alone and not knowing the language; how desirable it is to know someone speaking the same language.
Going to the souvenir anniversary publication of the Chung Wah Association, the idea of Chinese language teaching was nurtured in 1923 at the Wesley Church, where senior members talked informally to Sunday school children.
But it was only in 1974 that the Executive Committee of the Association, with Mr Ken Sue as President, started a Chinese school to allow the members’ children to learn Mandarin at the Association Hall, with twelve students attending the first class.
In 1980, the school was relocated to West Leederville Primary School. It was the year Chung Wah Chinese school received Commonwealth funding under the Ethnic School Grant Program. In 1984, Mrs Anita Chong OAM was made Principal with the assistance of her then-deputy, Mrs Trinh Quach. The school, by then, had fifty students and three teachers. This first Chung Wah Chinese school was relocated to Morley Senior High in 1993 till today.
In the third term of 1985, the West Lynwood branch of Chung Wah Chinese school was started in response to requests from parents living south of the river. This branch relocated to Rossmoyne High School in 2011. The newest campus of the Chung Wah Chinese school, the Leeming Chinese school, started in 1991.
Today, the Chung Wah Association runs five Chinese schools with an enrolment date of over 1,500 students. The schools provide the facilities and opportunities for students to learn, listen, speak, read and write Chinese (Mandarin) and to gain a greater appreciation of Chinese culture and tradition.
