Go Forward, Beloved Sir!
After devoting 12 years of service to Methodist Boys Secondary School Kuala Lumpur (MBSSKL) as its principal, Mr. Wong Chee Kheon took a last bow to tumultuous applause as he bade farewell to his beloved school on the 17th June 2017.
Mr. Wong Chee Kheon started off as a teacher and then moved on to become a school inspector before working briefly in a stint at Bahagian Teknologi Pendidikan as part of the Smart School Project Team. A vacancy then led to him to his first principal post for a fleeting 22 months in SMK Bandar Baru Sri Petaling before he was posted to MBSSKL where he served ardently for 12 years as principal.
Throughout his years in MBSSKL, Mr. Wong brought about numerous advancements and improvisations. Through his indefatigable assiduousness, MBSSKL was awarded the, “Cluster School of Excellence” title in 2008. With the feasible mechanisms that he employed, he led MBS through a glorious path – one of the top 10 schools in Kuala Lumpur for SPM and STPM, numerous national level winners in co-curriculum activities namely Robotics and Chess tournaments, and a remarkable feat would be when MBSSKL became the first government school to offer IGCSE in English in the country. Being awarded the ISO 9001 Certificate in 2014, the school also had international collaborations with Methodist College Hong Kong since 2010.
Needless to say, the legacy that Mr. Wong had carved into the history books of MBSSKL made him deserving of an outstanding retirement celebration. Among the long list of distinguished guests were representatives from the Ministry of Education, the Board of Governors, the Methodist Council, the Methodist Church, the MBSSKL Alumni and principals from various schools in KL. The representative from the Ministry of Education and the Board of Governors presented Mr. Wong with a certificate in appreciation for his endeavors. A special video montage that encompassed Mr. Wong’s 12 years of memorable journey in MBSSKL including pictures with his family was screened. There was a plethora of dance performances on display showcasing the students’ talent. The icing on the cake was the rendition of 2 songs by Mr. Wong, “Seasons in the Sun” and “Words” and there was thunderous applause when his wife shared the stage with him to sing these songs.
In his final speech to the school, Mr. Wong reiterated his motto, “Always strive to do the right thing“. He expressed his fervent admiration of Mother Theresa and how her altruistic actions were always an inspiration to him. Mr. Wong was showered with gifts from guests, teachers and the fact that many former boys had taken the time and effort to join in the celebration clearly signifies Mr. W ong’s impact on their lives.
Finally, Mr. Wong was escorted by the MBSSKL Boys’ Brigade band to bid adeiu before he was finally driven off in a Porsche – A classy ending to the era of a visionary principal. May he be blessed by the Almighty in his new journey. -ORA ET LABORA-

Alumnus Edmund Bon Inspires Students on Graduation Day

Posted on Nov 22nd 2010 at 1:00pm under Events by wongck

Rosette for Edmund upon arrivalGraduating students
Memories are the stuff that dreams are made of, and the dreams of the Form Fives and Form Sixers of MBSSKL saw a culmination on 10 November 2010. Yes, it was their Graduation Day, a day specially set aside in their honour. At approximately 7.30 in the morning, the distant sounds of kompang pierced the air. It grew more distinct and a small procession could be discerned as it made its way up the hallowed hallway to the school “Dewan”.
“Announcing the arrival of our distinguished guest-of-honour Edmund Bon Tai Soon…” the talented emcees for the day Ho Sek Wei and Alexandra enunciated through the PA system. All necks craned to view the entourage consisting of the principal, Mr Wong Chee Keong, the invited guest, Mr Edmund Bon Tai Soon, the PIBG chairman Mr Ron Leong, ex-principal Mr Yong Chee Seng, and the MBS Alumni representative Mr Low Kong Ming walked down the “aisle” and took their places.
The National Anthem and the school song in Malay duly sung, the barrage of speeches quickly started: Ng Wai Lam representative for Form 5 Science stream took the podium first, followed by the Arts Stream Form 5 Representative, Mohd Alif Danial bin Mohd, Chua Wanji for the Form 6 Girls, Dhilip Kumar for the Form 6 Boys and closed by the witty, light and interactive speech by the Captain of the school, Pavithran Nair, the natural speaker that he is. All speeches were excellent, with hints of nostalgia, twinges of heart-stirring unforgettable moments and gratitude to the educators for being their guiding light. All these will become indelible and will be looked back on with fondness.
The PIBG chairman Mr Ron Leong then delivered an stirring speech with the quizzical theme “MBA”: not you’re typical Masters of Business Administration but Mental Picture, Believing in Oneself and Action mantra that one can apply in one’s life for a successful action plan. This was followed by the principal Mr Wong Chee Kheon’s speech that touched on being pillars of society and not forgetting one’s roots especially that of being an MBS boy. Finally the guest-of- honour, Oxford educated Mr Edmund Bon Tai Soon gave a inspiring speech that exhorted boys to uphold the 5 tenets of the Rukunegara (Nationhood) and know our constitution well. He also asked students to always treasure the rights given to us and to fight for what one is entitled to. He regaled students with anecdotes of his fair share of brushes with school rules and early days of trying break ‘laws’ just to see if he could get away with them!!
After such a thought-provoking speech, the much awaited ceremony of giving out of certificates for 100 percent attendance, President’s Council, and Societies, was swung into action, culminating in the presentation of souvenirs from the Form Teacher to the students and a song by the students beseeching teachers to accept them as they are since nobody is “PERFECT”, the title of the song. As expected, teachers lined the halls to shake the hands of the graduating students and send them off on to path of their chosen future accompanied by the strains of the soulful “Auld Lang Syne” evoking sadness tinged with the regret of separation and the fact that school days are over, and they are ready to embark on the next phase of their adult lives with trepidation and expectation. Tears flowed freely and hugs were given warmly. What does the future hold?
Everyone adjourned to the terrace for a photo session which soon escalated into impromptu photo shoots that will go down in one’s own annals of history as the day they graduated from Form 5 and Form 6 in MBSSKL.

Posted on Aug 18th 2010 at 10:28pm under Events by wongck

July 24 2010 proved to be a very memorable and joyous day for MBSSKL. The whole school, including the PTA had worked hard leading to the carnival. Tickets sales, stalls, food, sponsorship, games, cleanliness, parking, etc,etc were issues to be worked on before the day. But feedback from the crowd gave the best satisfaction for the hard work put in. Many are of the opinion that never in a school carnival the place was so clean and well organised with so many stalls in such a joyous and cheerful occasion. The day started with the students and teachers gathering and laying out their food items and the others getting ready their games stall. The crowd sized up at about 9am. At exactly 10am, the Lion Dance Troupe staged a splendid performance to welcome the Methodist Schools alumni from all over Malaysia and also two alumni from Hong Kong. This was followed by the traditional kompang welcome. The entourage was then taken to visit the food and games stall area and the 1st KL Company Boys’ Brigade staged a few formation tunes to the delight of the crowd. The total revenue from the carnival was in the excess of RM110,000 and all stakeholders – students, parents, teachers, alumni had played their part to make it the most successful carnival in the history of MBSSKL.DSCN0548
