Kheng Cheng School
How Kheng Cheng School Developing The Students?
Madam Lim Peng Tuan, the school’s founder, arrived at Shrewsbury Road, a rural region bordering Newton and Moulmein, in 1910 and established the school. Madam Lim was approached by a scholar, Mr Tan Cheo Teng, in 1922 about starting a school. She accepted because she viewed this as an opportunity to impart education to the youngsters in the neighbourhood. Although she had only a few years of education and was not affluent, education was the only way out of poverty. Madam Lim named her school Kheng Cheng School, which means “to raise the youths” in Teochew. It is a name that continues to inspire us to this day.
The Kheng Cheng School International Chess Club emphasises character values such as tenacity, perseverance, and respect fostered through competitions and interactions among club members. In the early 1990s, the Chess Club found intend to foster intellectual games. Chess, a ‘thinking’ game, helps members develop tenacity, self–discipline, and self–confidence. It also requires players to practise logical decision-making and reasoning. Members have the opportunity to reach new heights of excellence through an enjoyable learning process. At the Nationals, compete in the Individual and Team Chess tournaments, representing the school.
