    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

    Very Little Difference.

    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.

    Question

    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!
