Students protest teachers’ dismissal
Uprising: The tense atmosphere as the students protest during the convocation in Kota Kinabalu.
KOTA KINABALU: A convocation for seniors at an independent Chinese school here was disrupted when a group of students marched into the hall protesting against the dismissal of 10 teachers.
Prior to that, attendees at the event, held at the Kian Kok Middle School on Friday, were already taken aback when a teacher who was giving a farewell speech voiced her dissatisfaction over the termination of the services of several colleagues as well as herself.
According to several parents who attended the convocation, as the teacher was speaking, a group of 20 senior students walked into the hall carrying placards asking the school management to explain why the contracts of their teachers were not renewed.
After chanting that they were against the termination, the students then left the hall.
