WHAT CAN THE CHURCH DO FOR OUR MISSION SCHOOLS
by Tay Choon Neo,
Director, Spiritual Development
Methodist Council of Education
Haven’t we all heard the general lament of our Mission Schools; some even say that they are more like a sekolah agama than a Christian Mission School. What happened to the Christian Ethos of our Methodist Schools ?!
It is with joy that I bring you greetings from a new avenue of the Council of Education called Spiritual Life Development of schools. As the recently appointed Director, I covet your prayers and partnership to bring back the Christian Witness and Christian Ethos in our schools which has been eroded over the last few decades.
Our Methodist Mission Schools have been providing education since 1891 with the Anglo-Chinese School (now MBS) in Penang. After that, many schools have been set up and blessed thousands of boys and girls with a good holistic education based on Christian values and principles. There were church schools, government-aided schools, afternoon schools, continuation schools, private schools and they attracted multiracial and multi-religious students of all social-economic backgrounds. Over the years, because of changes in policies and circumstances, demographics have also changed. The ethos or pervading spirit of the school has been reformed until it is often unrecognizable as a mission school.
