Han Chiang High School(韩江中学)




1962年当时教育制度改变,全马各华文中学纷纷改制为全津贴的国民型中学,本校董事部议决不接受改制而成为华文独立中学,自筹自办,不受政府分文 津贴。在众善心大德的支持及热心捐献下,韩江中学完善的硬体建设一一的落实(室内体育馆图书馆、商科楼),一时韩江中学被称为大马最具规模,设备最完善的 独立中学。

韩江中学自创迄今已过半个世纪,七十年代及八十年代初期,学生来自全马各州!及邻近东合国家,尤其以泰国及印尼为首,学生人数一度达三千余名。韩江 中学肩负维护及发扬中华优秀文化的重任,培养实用之工商科学人材,以适应环境之需求。除了坚持母语教育,1998年更创立了韩江ELS语言中心,提供高素 质英文教学,1999年设立两间冷气电脑室,以提供学生电脑资讯课程。同时更创办韩江学院,开 拓学子升学的管道。
