    are merely pawns in the political battle The riots must be the work of communists he exclaimed angrily Beads of perspiration rolled down the faces of father and daughter Mountbatten Road unshaded under the broiling sun was almost unbearable to pass through Wet strands of hair covered Swee Har s forehead and she tried to smoothen them back The trishaw came to a halt outside a gate It bore the name Kallang West Government Chinese Middle School Swee Har noted that this new school building was smaller than the other secondary schools Smell of fresh paint wafted through the hallways which were rather narrow Swee Har frowned Wrapping his arm around Swee Har s shoulder her father assured her that the newly completed Mountbatten Road school building was a temporary campus that had originally been slated for a primary school Mr Lee said You ll soon have a bigger school Moving to secondary school may be unsettling for some but not for Swee Har Like 400 other students from the Chinese High School and Chung Cheng High School that were shut down by Lim Yew Hock Singapore s 2nd Chief Minister Swee Har was more concerned about continuing her studies The government opened emergency schools for these affected students Swee Har s new school was one such school Mr Sun Hwan Sin 1956 1958 was appointed the first principal of Kallang West Government Chinese Middle School Notably Swee Har did not enroll herself at Kallang West Government Chinese Middle School The school was born out of political necessity on 14 October 1956 The pioneer batch of students consisted of about 100 boys with a teaching staff of about 10 In an interview with the National Archives of Singapore four decades later Swee Har recalled At that time there were leftists in Singapore My father was very worried He didn t allow me to study in the established Chinese Middle Schools because Chung Cheng High School and the Chinese High School were leftist in orientation He forbade me from enrolling in these schools There was one Chinese middle school that he had approved but it was too far from my house I decided to continue my studies at Dunman High Chinese Middle School The school building was not completed yet The school was temporarily housed in Kallang The school was then called Kallang West Government Chinese Middle School The school building was originally built as a primary school A year later in 1957 our new school building was completed 那个时候学校有左派分子 我爸爸很担心 他不让我去中正中学和南侨中学读书 于是 我报读了德明政府华文中学 不过 当时的校舍还没建好 临时的校舍在加冷西 目前是一所聋哑学校 一年之后 新校舍完工 我们就搬过来了 Swee Har could still recall vividly the lessons and teachers at Kallang West Government Chinese Middle School She reminisced We studied History English Language Geography and had singing classes The school also offered Art lessons too My deepest impression was my Chinese Language teacher because he s from Beijing He spoke with strong Beijing accent He s a nice teacher His name was Mr Lee Zhong Qian Mr Liu Kang
