You can call this number 03-8023 2174 to inquire about SJKC Tun Tan Cheng Lock for the Chinese school.

There is also a Malay & Tamil school in this Sekolah Wawasan ;)

So, the school is actually in operation?! Know any complaint?

I like to know the different between pure SRJKC and those in Sekolah Wawasan.

The wawasan schools get to share their facilities with the three major races. Your child gets to play and learn with children from other races. Idea is to promote the muhibbah spirit from young. Facilities at the exisitng wawasan school should be alot better than the SJK(C)s in SJ-USJ. The govt promoted the wawasan concept. If the wawasan school is close to home than it would be feasible to enrol your child there. You may not want your child to be caught in the massive traffic jams going to and coming from the two other SJK(C)s - Lick Hung in SS19 and Chee Wen in USJ 1. Teaching quality is very subjective -One man's meat is another man's poison.

Its not a "Malay" school. Its a National school. I am not sure but I think the Chinese and Tamil schools still have their own boards to run it with little interference from the ministry.

wawasan schools were built to improve racial integration among the kids.. since national schools were having almost 95% enrolment by malays.

How many years have this wawasan school been running ? I personally wouldn't expect to see much racial integration just from the kids "mingling" during recess and assemblies. I would think since they don't spend time together in class they would naturally stick to their own "gangs" during the breaks.. I dunno.. maybe some parents who have kids in these schools can provide some feedback on the actual scenario.

Secondary school already unify to one kind only which is SMK, so there is no need to have "wawasan" for them.

I wonder how much integration they have? Having assembly together each morning? Sharing same canteen, library & field?

During morning assembly, they should each queue with their same class, so can't have any integration over there, time spent on canteen, library & field are minimum.... so what integration they have?

Frankly, I think nothing much has been done in promoting racial integration at the wawasan school at the moment.

My daughter is in the school. Every day she comes back with loads of homework. And whenever the school has any extra curricular function, it is limited to that school itself without involvement from another 2 schools in the same compound (pls correct me if I am wrong)

Guess that all the 3 schools' management there have their own 'work load' to handle. Not much time for others as yet

Finally someone with child in Sekolah Wawasan, so how long your daughter studying there? Feel anything special about this concept?

If the SRJKC component is acceptable, then should encourage this sekolah wawasan concept, cause that way we will have NEW fully sponsored SRJKC that will solve our "dilemma SRJKC" problem.

Sorry, I did'nt get myself clear.

My daughter is in the National school, Tun Jaffar (I think) and she learn Tamil from her Indian friends from the Tamil school, when time permit, she attend the Tamil class in the afternoon.

As for her Mandarin, she learn from her babysitter who look after her from 2nd month till 4 years old. We too started learning Mandarin from her as she speaks Mandarin to us then. We then learn more from friends and collegue and I now converse in Mandarin with my Chinese collegue who choose to converse in it.

Looking forward to start learning Tamil from her!

I know a little bit of Tamil, but you know lah, it's those *&^%$!

Have a good day!

I think in SJ area all SJKC school have over crowded class - more than 40 /class. So you can expect the teachers to be fierce to be able to conduct classes. I think teachers play more important roles than school. If you get a good teacher, doesn't matter what school it is, you child will enjoy learning. Lick hung has both good and lousy teachers.

I know a little bit of Tamil, but you know lah, it's those *&^%$! hopefully she isnt learning those same words from her classmates while playing outside. :)

Wawasan school...a great idea, but it needs more wawasan and muhibbah...sometimes a gentle nudge from parents can push school administration into breaking down the silos and getting staff and teachers and admin and students to interact.

Otherwise you just have 3 relatively separate schools in the area sharing the same facilities...which makes Sekolah Wawasan an interesting microcosm...for a country with 3 (oh, 4++ actually) relatively separate societies sharing the same land mass

So how can parents nudge these changes forward? Food and festivals are a good approach but more is needed. Maybe an interschool playmate program? Interschool co-curricular activities, sports, concerts, etc? Interschool exchange programmes? Parents of different races sharing supervision duties on the school fields?

It's that time for me to consider which school to register my son in for Std 1. Any feedback from parents who send their kids to this school?

LMei,

If your child can get into SJKC Tan Cheng Lock - then it is good as it is a FULLY GOVT SPONSORED SJKC, so all the facilities should be newer, better, classes are smaller, no donations required etc ... compared to Lick Hung and Chee Wen. As for the teaching, IMHO, all the 3 SJKCs in SJ/USJ are comparable - most importantly is the commitment of the teachers which is very high in all 3 SJKCs - so no worries there.

When I was registering with my son back in 2008, we actually picked SJKC Tan Cheng Lock as our first choice for the reasons stated above (Govt paid, facilities, school field .... ) but when we spoke to the Tan Cheng Lock HM, we were told that based on our house address, we should apply to Lick Hung and that he will also reject us beacuse we are not in his "catchment" area but under Lick Hung's zone. So, we went to Lick Hung and no regrets whatsoever except when the "quarterly" donation forms come in :rolleyes: :D

He said if we insist on applying to Tan Chen Lock, our chances are less than 80% for that year but if we apply to Lick Hung definitely 100% get enrolled - so he advises us to go to the SJKCs nearest to our house unless you want to leave it to chance and be decided by the Pejabat Pelajaran who could sent the child to Sungai Way or Puchong.

When I asked him about teaching quality, his answer is at Primary level ALL URBAN SJKCS are similar, most uses the same workbooks, all have tons of homework :eek: , SJKCs teachers are all fierce, expect children to do revisions - the difference in performances is a reflection more of the parents emphasis and in the matter of UPSR, parents at Chee Wen, Lick Hung and Tan Cheng Lock are more "kiasu" - that's why all 3 are "fighting" to be SJ/USJ top dog :p - just like Man Utd, Chelsea and Arsenal :rolleyes:

As for the WAWASAN CONCEPT - that is what it is A CONCEPT .... by a politician who knows nuts about integration some more, come on, let us face reality, if your kids are in an SJKC, if they have got time to pee or eat properly during recess, you are lucky !! The "play" concept which is when REAL INTEGRATION happens is when the school emphasis less on studies - I don't think it will ever happen in an SJKC !! People become "integrated" when they play together ... not work, not study, not whatever ... but PLAY and ENJOY ... and in the case of the kids, I don't mean the officially organised events, dances, 1Malaysia this and that etc etc ... but what happens before, after school and during recess ... the random and ad-hoc gathering and playing among children (minus adults and supervision) ;)

So I don't even give any weightage to it EXCEPT with that tagging/labelling, Tan Cheng Lock get 100% GOVT (RAKYAT) MONEY for its development, buildings etc while the other two only 50% or matching funds and the rest from donations from parents and community - if my understanding is correct :) Lick Hung is still in the process of raising RM4-5 million for new class block and to date, I have not heard of Tan Cheng Lock asking for donations for buildings/facilities ;)

Currymee, after reading what you have just wrote, I cannot help but to think that if the SJKC Tan Cheng Lock HM had known that you are such a pro-active parent in your child's education ;) (based on your SJKC Lick Hung Parents thread), he may make an exception even though your house is out of his normal students intake zone.

I guess it is Lick Hung's parents and children gain in this context.

Cikgu Fong,

I wouldn't think so - most school management and HM do not like "active" parents - they prefer docile, obedient and compliant parents :rolleyes:

You need to call in Wawasan to see whether the area you staying will get a placing there! Eventhough they say no, you may still try if you really want your child to enrol to Wawasan... ;)

No need to bring your child. I can recall just bring your child birth cert (original) and your house utilities bill. You may want to find out from Wawasan first before you go there to register!!

Dear parents,

I heard that Sek Wawasan offers kindergarten classes for 6 year olds. I am thinking of enrolling my daughter for 2012 intake. Called the school and was told that I can try to enrol in August.

Question: Does enrolment into kindergarten also depend on house address/catchment area?

For Std 1, I've heard of parents who live near that school but still could not get into it as the classes are very limited (only 3 classes) - is that true?

Could any parents please share their experiences? Much appreciated.

Yes for kindergarten it will still depend on ur house address. from this year onwards standard 1 only have 3 classes. But you can try. I's better to enrol your child into kindergarten as 1 (Year 1) class is reserve for their kindergarten's student. TTCL is a good school.

Thanks for your reply.

I've just called the school but the little info given is terribly unhelpful :(

The person I spoke to cannot let me know the catchment area or the criteria for selection. I guess it's all 'unknown'?

Can someone help me with the catchment area for this school? USJ 13? USJ 14? USJ 15?

I just need to know whether it's worthwhile for me to try registering or should I not waste time and go look elsewhere.

Sorry to say, they are not able to tell you which area. As far as I know, even you are staying next to it also you won't be able to get in to Wawasan. So, all the best for trying! ;)

I am not sure if it is true or not but I heard over one Xmas gathering that SJKC TTCL is having serious financial problems where they are unable to get any more Govt funds to rebuild and repair some of the classrooms that were damaged during the recent storms. :confused:

Furthermore, I heard that the PIBG in TTCL is starting a donation drive but rumours that because it is a fully funded Govt-SJKC, the local businesses and community are turning a "blind eye" to assist ? :(

That will be very SAD, politics aside, please think of the children and their safety !!

I got this hyperlink via an email this morning - http://moonlightchest.com/selangor_times_2011/subang_residents_schools_seek_aid.asp

Extract: .... “We were worse hit on the top floor with seven classrooms damaged. Classes are now conducted in the multipurpose hall for safety reasons,” said Wong Kuan Yu.

Wong, who is the SJK(C) Tun Tan Cheng Lock (TTCL) PTA president, said he hoped the Ministry of Education would help with repairs ....

Perhaps, parents with kids at TTCL can shed some light on this ? :confused:
