When it became a government aided school in 1963, it was called SMB Kucing High and since 2002, the school has been known as SMK Kuching High.

The school has been named Sarawak’s most promising school and Chief Minister Excellent School.[5] Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin who is also the nation's Education Minister praised Kuching High School as "a success story of the national education system".[6] To have further education, completing students would be accepted into SMK St. Thomas, to pursue their Malaysian Higher School Certificate (Sijil Tinggi Pelajaran Malaysia or STPM) program, by the government’s matriculation program (mostly to Kolej Matrikulasi Labuan) or other public and private higher education institutions, while some have been awarded education scholarships by government or private bodies.

1916:   Min Teck Junior Middle School (民德初級中學)
1946 : Chung Hua Middle School (中華中學)
1958: Chung Hua Middle School No.2 (古晉中華第二中學)
1963: SMB Kuching High
2002: SMK Kuching High

SMK Kuching High was formerly known as Min Teck Junior Middle School (民德初級中學)when it was established by Kuching Teochew Association(古晉潮州公會) in 1916 as a self-funded Chinese school, at Jalan Batu, Kuching.[2] [7]

In 1941, the school was closed during the Japanese Occupation in Sarawak until liberation, and in 1946, the school was reopened and named Chung Hua Middle School(中華中學)under the management of a Joint School Board formed by representatives of thirteen leading associations in Kuching, thus becoming the first and the sole Chinese Middle School re-opened at that time.[8] In 1958 when another new Chinese Middle School under the same Board of Management was built in Pending Road, Kuching and named Chung Hua Middle School No.1 (古晋中华第一中学), this school was renamed Chung Hua Middle School No.2(古晉中華第二中學).[2] At the same year, Chung Hua Middle School no.3 and Chung Hua Middle School No. 4 were estalished under the Board of Management.[9]

After Sarawak, Sabah and Singapore joined Malaysia in 16 Sept 1963,[7] the Sarawak Education Department introduced a Ten-year Conversion Plan to bring all Chinese Middle Schools into the National Education System by gradually switching the medium of instruction from Chinese to English, while retaining Chinese language as a compulsory subject.[8] Nevertheless, the Board of Management was under no obligation to comply, but was stipulated that schools that would not accept it would have to withdraw from the Grant-aided system. The Kuching Joint Board, however, declined the Plan, and hence all the four Middle Schools under its control, including Chung Hua Middle School No.1, Chung Hua Middle School No.2, Middle School No.3 and Middle School No.4 became non-aided Chinese Independent High School.[9]

At this juncture, a number of the parents of the students studying in Chung Hua Middle School No.2 requested the Teochew Association, which is the legal owner of the premises of the school, to get back the school premises and run it as an aided school.[8] Furthermore, the Teochew Association considered it necessary to have at least one Government aided secondary school to be established in Kuching so the Teochew Association took over the management of the school in 1963 under the auspice of the parents and with the approval of the Education Department (11 October 1962). Consequently, the Kuching High School became one of the 78 schools nationwide which had converted into national schools and participated in the national education system.[6] The name Kuching High School was chosen and in order to assimilate into Malaysia schools, it was called Sekolah Menengah Bantuan (SMB) Kuching High.[2] "Sekolah Menengah Bantuan" means "Aided Secondary School" in Malay language. When bearing the name Kuching High school, its first intake of students on 15 January 1963 had 830 students and 25 classes in both the Chinese and English streams.[10] In 2002 together with all government aided school in Malaysia,[2] the school became to be known as Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan (National Secondary School) and hence the name SMK Kuching High.[7]

Physical Development

In early 1963, the school consisted of a 7 wooden school blocks,[2] such as the administration block built in 1932 [11] which included the general office, staff room, science laboratory and library, as well as six two-storey classroom blocks, two basketball courts, one badminton court and a store-room.[7] In 1974, a two-storey partially wooden science laboratory block was constructed.[11] Due to growing student enrolment, in 1977, the one-storey Block 2 was reconstructed into a two-storey classroom block and the store-room into a three-storey concrete block, which housed science laboratories and uniformed societies, to alleviate overcrowding. In 1988, a four-storey concrete block was built on the basketball court and named Block 6, with the top three floors utilized as classrooms and the ground floor as the canteen, while in 1990, another four-storey concrete block was built to replace Block 6 and named Block 7, with the top-most floor as the science laboratories, ground floor for co-curricular activities and the rest as classrooms.

Block 4 and 5 were demolished to make way for a new three-storey concrete block with a hall, theater, library and living skills education rooms in 1996.[7] However, it was a failed project as the plan was not approved by the local authorities since the site was made government’s reserved land.

In 2000, several parts of the school was renovated, including a new great hall on the badminton/tennis court, a steel canopy joining adjacent Block 6 and 7,a garden between Block 1 and 3 and a concrete wall aligning the school compound along Mathie Road.[7] The following year, the school’s jogathon provided MYR 250,000 for building a computer room. In the end of 2002, a cooperatives room and an auditorium was built, while counselor’s room was revamped from an old classroom.

In 2004, the roof of the great hall was repaired in response to one that was blown away in a storm and in 2007, the great hall was renovated.

In early 2008, the two-storey Junior Science Block which was an extension of the administration block, consisting the junior science laboratories, red crescent office and staff’s toilets together with Block 2 was declared unsafe by the Public Works Department (PWD) due to termite problem [12][13] and had since become unoccupied.[11]

However, before the school's Board of management received a grant from the Education Ministry to renovate the unsafe blocks, the administration block and Junior Science Block was razed in a fire on 2 December 2008,[11] causing the school in need of MYR 500,000 for temporarily housing its staff.[12] Construction of the razed blocks would be divided into two phases, viz. phase one for the construction of junior science block and classroom blocks, whereas phase two for administrative block that includes an office, a library, classrooms and a conference room, costing MYR 3.4 million and MYR 2.2 million respectively.[14] On 23 Dec 2008, an EGM was held by the Teochew Association to approve amount of MYR 3.2 million to rebuild the block, of which MYR 200,000 for a temporary administration office, and the remaining MYR 3 million to rebuild Block 1 and admin block.[15]

2 December Fire

A fire razed Kuching High School on 2 December 2008 afternoon. The incident started at 1:05pm (GMT+8.00 HRS) when the staff noticed smoke billowing from the Red Crescent Society room at the ground floor of the Junior Science Laboratory and contacted the Civil Defence Department and the Fire and Rescue Services Department.[16] At the same time, the office clerk, teachers and security guards at the site salvage important documents, some files and various equipments including heavy duty printers and computers from the administration block which houses historical documents, students' belongings and computers.[11] The fire then spread to junior science laboratories above the building and administrative block adjacent to the Junior science laboratory block.

In about 40 minutes, the inferno was brought under control by forty-one firefighters with four fire engines and three Rapid Intervention Motorcycles (R.I.M) units from four Fire Departments in Batu Lintang, Tabuan Jaya, Petra Jaya and Padungan.[11] Initial investigations revealed short circuit as the cause of the fire. Despite no casualty recorded, the school was faced with heavy material losses and ensuing financial problem to reconstruct the facilities. In addition to the two-storey Junior science laboratory block that includes junior science laboratories, equipment store room and staff wash room, as well as the adjacent two-storey administration block that includes principal room, staff room, administration room, library, meeting room for staff and students activities, which were burnt down in the blaze,[17] textbooks kept in the Junior science laboratory block for the student’s Textbook Loaning Scheme (Skim Pinjaman Buku Text or SPBT) the following school year were also destroyed.[11] Also, the destroyed corporation's property within one of the burnt blocks summed up to a MYR 20,000 lost. [18]

Aftermath

With the reason that classrooms used for the annual SPM examination, which was scheduled until 4 December 2008, were quite a distant from the burning blocks, the students sat for their exam as planned with no hindrance.[11]

An immediate effort was called for to restore the burnt buildings along with those which had been declared unsafe by PWD preceding the calamity. The fire left the School Board of Management with an estimated MYR 6.4 million reconstruction cost. This included MYR 3 million for rebuilding the administration block and MYR 1.4 million for the Junior Science block, which were both razed by the fire, in addition to MYR 2 million for rebuilding Block 2 that consisted of living skills, religious teaching, and equipment storage rooms, which were falling down. In order to meet ends with its heavy cost, an appeal was made to the Ministry of Education for a grant.[19]

On 23 Dec 2008, an emergency general meeting (EGM) held by the Teochew Association ordered the construction of a temporary administration office with MYR 200,000. Another MYR 3 million was funded by the meeting to rebuild Block 1 and the admin block for the long run.[15] Also, the Kuching High Rebuilding Committee, chaired by Mr Kuek Eng Mong,[20] was formed on 6 January 2009 with the support of ex-Highians (alumni), Parent-teacher association, Kuching High School Board of Management, Kuching Teochew Association and other concerned individuals.[19] The school was also blessed with concerns from the state’s Deputy Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Tan Sri Dr George Chan Hong Nam, Malaysian Minister of Plantation Industries and Commodities Datuk Seri Peter Chin Fah Kui, Director of JKR Sarawak Datu Hubert Thian Chong Hui and other local politicians, who became advisors for the reconstruction of the school.[21]

The school is slowly recovering from the calamity with fiscal support from various bodies and communities. Besides MYR 900,000 allocate by the School Board of Management [19] and approximately half million ringgit from insurance claim, the reconstruction projects also received fundings from various bodies, including MYR 1.7 million from the Ministry of Education, MYR 200,000 from Sarawak’s government MYR 600,000 from Kuching Teochew Association, MYR 100,000 from SUPP and MYR 120,000 from the school’s Parent Teacher Association.[22] Various fund-raising activities were also organized by the school and alumni. A jogathon organized by the school’s parent-teacher association (PTA) on 25 July 2009 saw 400 participants and collected MYR 170,000 from the public.[23]

Academics

Kuching High curriculum, similar to other government high school, is divided into a three-year lower secondary stage and two-year upper secondary stage. Lower secondary stage consists of Form 1 to Form 3, while Upper Secondary stage consists of Form 4 and Form 5. A one-year Removal class prepares students who have failed their UPSR exam for Form 1.

Compulsory subjects of the lower secondary includes Malay Language, English Language, Mathematics, Science, History, Geography, Living Skills (Option 4: Business and Commerce), Physical Education, Art and Civics. Non-Muslim students would have to study Moral Education, while the Muslims students take Islamic studies. The Chinese Language is an elective subject which most students take. Students in Removal classes would have to take Malay Language in Practice (Amali Bahasa Melayu). At the end of Form 3, students would sit for the PMR examination, and later, they could enter the school’s upper secondary stage, where they can choose to enter the art, science or technology ‘streams’.Compulsory subjects, which have to be partaken by students from all three streams include Malay Language, English Language, Mathematics, History, Moral Education/Islamic Studies, Civics and Physical Education. Students would sit for the SPM examination administered by the Ministry of education at the end of their Form 5 before graduation.

In addition to the core subjects, Kuching High also offers a broad range of elective subjects for senior students. Generally, Science streams would have Biology, Chemistry, Physics, Additional Mathematics and English for Science and Technology. Both technology and art streams offer Commerce, Science and Art. Computer science enthusiasts could take up Information, Communication and Technology which is only offered in the technology stream; whereas the art students can take up Geography.

A popular elective subject in both upper and lower secondary stage of Kuching High is Chinese Language which is taken up by most students, viz. the S1, S3, S4, S5, A1 and A3 classes.

“Due to its historical past - being a Chinese-converted secondary school since 1963 - Chinese language is essentially an important and popular subject among the students, in line with its justification of conversion and establishment. Till today, this is still looked upon as the soul and spirit of Kuching High, without which the school will be looked upon as "rootless".” [24]

Besides elective subjects taught in classes, some students opt to take additional subjects independently to sit for their SPM examination. The common ones includes Bible knowledge and Chinese literature.

The school has been widely recognized by the public. The Sarawak Foundation awarded the Chief Minister Excellent School Awards to the school in 2003.[5] It has been deemed the state’s Most Promising School by the Education Department of Sarawak in 2002. In SPM 2008, there are 2 students scoring 13A1s, 9 students scoring 12A1s and 33 students scoring at 12As.16 students achieved 11As in the SPM examination apart from 13 students scoring 10As. SMK Kuching High is one of the top 10 schools in Sarawak. [25]

Chinese Language Society

古晉中學華文學會是在一群學生和華文教師的群策合力下成立,先前的會所坐落于民德樓前方的一座磚砌小樓,后在新世紀后應發展洪流而拆除。古晉中學華文學會以保留中華文化以及語言的使用而做出貢獻,其中包括會刊的出版(如:<<奔浪>>、<<留往若青山綠水>>、<<沒有終點的追逐>>等)、舉辦和協辦各種以弘揚中華文學的活動(如:年度“華文學會文學營”、華文戲劇比賽、演講比賽、華語辯論比賽、年度“族魂”的演出等)。每逢周六必定在“敬業樓”的底層三閒教室進行活動,其中包括“歌詠組”,“壁報組”,“書法組”以及各種團康活動。爲了鼓勵學生使用中文進行文學創作以及欣賞,華文學會創立了“向日葵版”壁報,該布告欄原本坐落于“民德樓”左側的校務処入口,現已不復存在(待查)。

The Chinese Language Society (古晉中學華文學會) was established under the auspices of students and Chinese language teachers. A room inside an isolated concrete hut in front of the Administrative had been allocated for the society's activities and storage. However, it was demolished to give way to development after the Millennium.

The society aims to conserve Chinese cultural heritage and its language usage among students which is exemplified through several efforts viz the publication of societal magazines (like 'Chasing the Waves'- “奔浪”, 'Existing like the green mountain and water' - “留往若青山綠水” and 'Unending pursuit' - “沒有終點的追逐” ) besides the organization of various activities that promulgate Chinese literature, such as the annual "KHS Chinese Literature Camp", Chinese Drama Competition, debates, forum, and the annual ethnic-spirit themed performance. Weekly activities, which consist of a choir, arts and crafts, Chinese calligraphy and other recreational activities, are held on Saturdays at the ground floor of Block 3.

In order to promote the production and admiration of creative pieces among the students, a Notice Board nicknamed the sunflower "向日葵版" displayed students' writings and art works at the left entrance of the Administrative block. This was lost in the fire in 2009.
