SOME 80 disciplinary teachers of independent Chinese secondary schools in the country attended a dialogue with the Malaysian Crime Prevention Foundation (MCPF) at the Dong Zong building in Kajang.
They were briefed by MCPF safety city committee chairman and national exco member Datuk Seri Johny Ch’ng Ewe Gee on the foundation’s roles and responsibilities in helping the authorities and the public fight crime.
Two retired senior police officers – Khoo Leng Huat and Chan Kuang Yu – gave those present an insight into past crime cases involving students.
Ch’ng, who is a former Pahang MCPF chairman, said such programmes were beneficial in helping schools address cases of students involved in crime.
“MCPF will continue to hold more joint activities and step up our crime prevention efforts.”
Ch’ng said students needed to be exposed to the true situation so they would not be led astray.
He said if the culture of detesting crime was inculcated in them from a young age, they would grow up to become responsible citizens.
He also welcomed 77 Chinese school principals and education officials to the Pahang MCPF office in Kuantan. — By SIMON KHOO
