In presenting the appointment letters, Mr. Lim Kiat Kong said that Kota Kinabalu High School is a national-type Chinese school that has been restructured, covering an area of 18 acres with approximately 2,400 students, most of whom come from middle to lower-income families, including non-Chinese students from Chinese primary schools. The school provides Chinese language education from Form 1 to pre-university, in addition to Malay and English languages. The school's educational philosophy is to cultivate the student's moral, intellectual, physical, social and aesthetic aspects.
Currently, Kota Kinabalu High School is actively upgrading its e-learning facilities, which is spearheaded by Vice Chairman of Kota Kinabalu High School Board of Governors, Datuk Hiew Thien Choi. The project aims to improve teaching equipment and adopt technology-enhanced learning to effectively improve the school's teaching quality and students' learning. The construction of an international standard sports field and running track is also underway and is expected to be completed soon, providing modern sports facilities for the school. The school board is also actively promoting the greening of the campus to protect the environment. "Our ultimate goal is for students to learn in a campus filled with wisdom and beautiful environment, to establish a warm teacher-student interactive campus culture, to cultivate students' sense of belonging to the school and to make Kota Kinabalu High School their second home," said Mr. Lim Kiat Kong.
Treasurer of Kota Kinabalu High School Board of Governors, Mr Pao Ong Kiew, is responsible for the campus greening project. During the two-year period of Covid-19 pandemic when the school was closed, Mr Pao Ong Kiew actively implemented a series of measures to deepen environmental cleaning and campus greening, planting flowers, trees and various tropical fruit trees in the school's open spaces, and setting up a nursery for student learning.
Finally, Mr Lim Kiat Kong said, "As we all know, Datuk Kong and Datuk Stephen Ngok are both famous and successful entrepreneurs in Malaysia, who are busy with their work and have many commitments. It is an honor for Kota Kinabalu High School to have them accept the appointment as consultants for the school's greening project and education development. We hope that both Datuk can often spare time to visit the school to guide our work. With the assistance and support of the both Datuk, we believe that our campus greening and environmental protection project will be successful."
