HENG EE; SOME HIGHLIGHT BEFORE ITS 55TH ANNIVERSALLY CELEBRATION
Welcome to Lift You Up Blog.
We know you all had a great weekend. It is a brand new day and beautiful new week, that time again to make new discovery of interesting events around us. If this is your first time linking up, we hope you find this a great blog to follow and to be followed. This is our intention to get more readers/followers in our blogs.
During my recent trip to Penang, I also managed to seize some of my time to pay a visit to my former school at Heng Ee High School. As I passed by the Hamilton Road, I noticed some decorations inside and outside of the school, ready for the grand opening. I then went in to snap some photos after obtaining permission from the guard there. While I was snapping photos, I recalled some of my old sweet memories where I spent my time at the School.
Below are some of the noticeable buildings I write to update you and hope you are entertained with these changes to the school.
Block F: Bangunan Wawasan
The Vision Building (Chinese: 宏願樓) (Malay: Bangunan Wawasan) has been topped out and is scheduled to have the grand opening at the School's 55th Anniversary Celebration on 9th of September 2011. The eight-storey building will house two multi-purpose halls, a library, a teacher's resource room, a co-curriculum unit as well as music rooms specially built for performing arts societies. An observatory deck was built at the rooftop for the school's astronomy club. Two elevators were installed to transport students throughout the building.
The original location of the school canteen was the current staff room. Years later, it was moved to the site beside Block E. Due to the school's expansion plan for the 8-storey Vision Building, the school once again moves the canteen to the site behind Block B temporarily. To cope with the increasing population, the new canteen to be built in the Vision Building will no longer be able to accommodate the increasing number of students. Hence the school announces the temporary canteen as the permanent canteen and three ventilating machines were installed at the same time.
Block D was completed in 1975. I recalled vividly that this block was built with public funds through walkathons. I lost my Identity Card during the fund raising exercise and fortunately I received it back when an unidentified good-hearted finder sent it through post. The ground floor of Block D was formerly the school canteen and was currently used as the staff room and the meeting room. Opposite the staff room was the air-conditioned lecture hall. Above the staff room was the school hall. Lecture Hall 2 was situated on the second hall opposite the balcony of the school hall.
DATO' FATHER JULIET'S ROOM
This room has been converted to the afternoon supervisor's room. I remember he was very happy to receive students in need of help. However, he was disliked by some mischievous students, who like to create troubles. Being a responsible and conscientious person like him, he always takes extra miles to lecture and teach them appropriately. That is why he earned a high respect from my heart.
Trust you find this update useful and stay tuned for more exciting news which are in the pipeline waiting for your discovery.
