SRJK(C) Shih Chung (时中正校) @ Bayan Lepas

With the help from Penang State Government and a property developer, the 107-year old Chinese Primary school, SRJK(C) Shih Chung, has finally found its new home and will be relocated to Bayan Lepas in the next few years.

The new school will be located within the development area of One Foresta affordable housing scheme. A really good news for young couples who are planning to buy their first home, not having to worry about sending their children to school in the future.

As part of Ideal Property Group’s corporate social responsibility, the developer has contributed 4 acres of land and to bear the estimated construction cost of at least 50 million ringgit.

According to Ideal Property Group’s Chairman Datuk Alex Ooi, the school will have a 3-storey building that can accommodate up to 1,000 students, a multipurpose hall with four badminton courts, a small football field and two basketball courts. There is also a reserved land for future expansion.

    It seems to be a good news for those who stay in Bayan Lepas, in future, it is likely to be a so called education hub as quite number of national schools are located in that area, as education accessibilty is crucial and eseential requirement needed for every family, personally, it is a great news to Bayan Lepas area. i forsee, this area is going to be booming in near future. Bravo!

    You are right, you will get more and more national schools in the southern part of the island as the population there increases. Statistics for chinese schools already shows that there is a declining enrollment for chinese schools in the north part, whereas enrollment has increased tremendously in the south.

    Most residents in Tanjong-Gurney area are foreigners, either without any school going children in the family, or they go to international schools. As real estate in the north gets more and more expensive, schools with low enrollment will make way for luxury condos. Pykett could be a good example soon.
