A LETTER FROM FORMER HEADBOY 1973

HERITAGE: Relocating school means relocating history
6 AUGUST 2014 @ 8:08 AM

THANK you for highlighting the issue of the proposed relocation of my beloved alma mater, Malacca High School: “Outcry over bid to relocate school” (NST, July 31).

Please consider the lyrics of the Malacca High School song:

Sekolah Tinggi Melaka keseluruh Negara,

Beramai ramai kita dukung Rukunegara,

Satu padu bertenaga majukan Negara,

Prinsip hidup progresif amalan sekolah kita

Sejak lapan belas dua enam
namamu terbina,

Sepanjang masa kemuka mulia dan bahagia,

Sekolah Tinggi, Sekolah Tinggi,

Tempat mu berbakti,

Perpaduan, bercahaya, kekalan abadi

The lyrics tell the world how much this school has done to nurture all its students since 1826. Great people have come from this school. They are all over the world today. My five brothers and I attended Malacca High School.

History was made many times at this very site where MHS stands today. Now there are plans to relocate it. Do not relocate history. There may be economical reasons behind it, but money isn’t everything.

Abdul Rahim Abd Aziz, MHS headboy, 1973
