MAHSOPA being one of Malacca High School Old Pupils Association, received two important letters issued by the Education Ministry from Putrajaya and an official letter from the Malacca State Education. 

There is a suggestion to relocate our School. No action is being taken yet as the authorities want to discuss this important matter with the School Management, Parents Teachers Association and former MHS pupils via our Alumni.

Letters below show their intention.

We want our former pupils of Malacca High to voice your opinion on this important development. 

Send your responses to : asap.


Our school is the second oldest school in Malaysia. The old buildings comprise a piece of our history which must be preserved at all cost! It is a shame to bulldoze it and replace it with some modern building is a shame. Melaka has sufficient land for development, besides more land can always be reclaimed and ir would be a disgrace to destroy our heritage.

Thank you.

Charlie Chia Sad indeed. Replacing 160 years old Heritage buildings with development. History maketh a sane and treasured civilization and ought to be preserved at all cost.

Black Km i think it s better since area situ dah selalu jammed..

Ming Lin Kwee Ntahlerr... ini dah umpama merobohkan rumah moyang... nilainya tak berbanding wang... mana satu area sekolah tak jam zaman sekarang...

Black Km skrg nyer masa x tau ler nak kata apa.. tang duit semua jadi buta..

Ming Lin Kwee 1% pun dah cukup lau dapat ambil alih dan majukan tapak kawasan tue... sama cam padang pahlawan dulu...

Whatever good that might come out of the relocation, a big piece of history will be gone and this cannot be replaced.

Black Km yup.. everything about money..

Premanathan Jaganathan Our school is a history site....what a waste

Adamronny Rosly malacca govt has long eyeing banda kaba land as moving the school might put pressure on land owners to move out once development take place..lets vote the school to stay where it is

Dear All, This news came shockingly close to this year's Hari Raya, a joyous occasion; yet it's felt almost like the twin disasters of MH370 & MH 17! Yes MHS has huge historical significance akin to the other pioneer schools  - Penang Free School & VI (Victoria Institution) in KL. Moreover it's Location is clustered with other neighboring schools which include BHES, SFI (both primary & secondary schools), Sacred Heart Convent & CHIJ, further up the road along Bandar Hilir. We MUST object and protest vehemently up to the highest government levels and if need be to include mounting a legal challenge! That's how strong we old pupils should feel. There are enough former students in Government, both politicians and lawyers who are available to do this. If would certainly help if the incoming principal of MHS is an old boy. Not that long ago the privatization (due to 'commercial & business' reasons) destroyed the educational legacy of  BBGS, Bukit Bintang Girls School in KL, where Pavillion is now, is a stark reminder of what may befall our beloved MHS. The powers that be almost did the same to VI & Merdeka Stadium which were saved from destruction due to the pleadings and objections from influential public figures and institutions. We MUST do the same for MHS before it's too late! Let's maintain and preserve the school according to our motto meaning "here we strive for the better things"- Meliora Hic Sequmour - so  Long Live OUR school, MHS forever! Let's start with a signature campaign and if need be get this into the news papers and then go viral in the social media and reach international circulation where many past students are worldwide. Americans would say - Go Get It!

Dear mates,

Attached are are letters from the Ministry of Education and Melaka Education Dept. proposing to shift the location of MHS to another location, forwarded to us by Norwati Jaapar of Melaka High School for our information.
I was notified of this intention by phone yesterday by Razali, Penolong Kanan Pentadbir (Senior Assistant 2) of MHS. Manuel Gomez of HSOBA collected a copy of the letter by Razali yesterday. Requested Razali to extend a copy to me and Razali wishes some feedback from us regards this proposal.

Was also informed by Razali that the new MHS Principal will be an old boy of MHS, and will be starting his duties soon.

Best Regards,

Teen thankful for new lease of life

Grateful: Teng with his mother Lim at his school.
Grateful: Teng with his mother Lim at his school.
MALACCA: Teenager Teng Cyun Shen, who survived a rare liver disorder, tells a story of gratitude — one that moved his schoolmates to tears.
It was a tale of caring schoolmates, teachers and alumni, and a stranger who went more than the extra mile to help the stricken teen.
Students of SMK St Francis Institutions (SFI) sobbed openly at the Monday morning assembly as Cyun Shen told his amazing story.
“I am alive today and I have to thank each and every one of you for giving me a new lease of life that I never imagined would be possible,” said the 17-year-old. In November last year, Cyun Shen was told by doctors he had only three more months to live after he was diagnosed with end-stage Caroli disease, a rare congenital disorder where the patient’s liver is abnormal. He was told he would die unless he had a liver transplant, a procedure only available at the National University Hospital in Singapore.“Today, I declare myself as a true son of SFI. I thought I would be in God’s hands by now, but because of your help, I am still here as a student,” said the Form Five student after successfully undergoing a transplant in Singapore. His liver disorder was already in an acute stage before that operation.
SFI and its Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) went on a donation drive to save Cyun Shen.
The fund received overwhelming response from alumni, Cyun Shen’s schoolmates, teachers and the public. In just two weeks, RM1mil was raked in.
The fund was then utilised for the liver transplant in Singapore in February and for Cyun Shen to stay in Singapore for three months for his subsequent check-ups.
SFI’s PTA chairman Mak Chee Kin said 27-year-old Lai Mee Yee from Kuala Lumpur donated 70% of her liver to Cyun Shen.
“Lai played a pivotal role in giving a second chance for the boy to live like any other teenager,” he said.
“Without her commitment, the transplant wouldn’t have been possible,” he added.
“The lass was willing to spare part of her organ to save a stranger after reading about his plight in the media, Mak said. “Her benevolence is extraordinary.”
Mak said Lai slept in a Buddhist temple in Singapore during the surgery, travelling to the hospital on her own expenses without demanding any form of payment.
“We are really touched,” he added.
Cyun Chen’s mother, Lim Choo Ngo, 52, said it was a miracle that her son was still alive.
“No word could describe my gratitude to the school, Miss Lai and Mak,” she said.
We extend our congratulations to SFI Alumni, former SFI pupils and donors for this very kind gesture in rallying to this compassionate cause.

Treasury will rely less on direct taxes with GST

KUALA LUMPUR: The additional revenue brought in by the goods and services tax (GST) will further reduce the Treasury’s dependence on direct taxes, said Datuk Seri Ahmad Husni Hanadzlah.
The Second Finance Minister said that with less direct tax burden on the people and businesses, there would be greater investment and even consumption within the domestic economy.
“The strategic impact would be that Malaysia, in percentage terms, will be less dependent on the external sector, on exports,” he said in his keynote address at the National GST Conference in Kuala Lumpur yesterday.
He said the Finance Ministry had already begun the process of reducing dependence on direct taxes, whereby personal and corporate income taxes had been lowered gradually over the years from 30% and 40%, respectively, to 26% and 25%. For SMEs, it has been lowered to 20%.
Husni said the GST, which would be implemented on April 1, 2015, would also simplify the tax system, encourage compliance and reduce administrative and business costs.
“It is essential that an efficient tax regime is provided for them (private sector). An unwieldy tax regime is expensive to manage and costly to administer,” he said.
As its implementation will cover three quarters of 2015, he said the Government was looking at earning roughly RM2.5bil in addition to the revenue secured under the sales and service tax.
He said this would jump to RM8bil in 2016 and keep increasing as more and more companies came onboard.
Husni said the Government was also intensifying efforts to promote the adoption of industrial design into exports, especially from the manufacturing sector, so that it could justify higher sales prices and edge its gross domestic product higher.
However, he said such efforts to upgrade this across Malaysia’s economy required money, pointing out that every tax incentive introduced by the Treasury was money spent despite incurring no immediate cash outlay.
