Crack HEADs

The champion of 'ALLAH' for bible's god is rearing his head again.

He must have his cake and eat it!

The Education Ministry should consult the school board of SMK Convent Bukit Nanas (CBN) to resolve an ongoing dispute regarding the appointment of a new Muslim principal, said Gerakan president Tan Sri Dr Koh Tsu Koon.

He added that the person would need to work together with the school board and community.

“The 1Malaysia concept is reflected in the country's education system, of which the various communities including Christian mission schools and other religious schools have roles to play.

“Their contribution and roles must be well-respected and appreciated,” he said at the Gerakan headquarters.

Stressing that the views of the school board must be taken into account, Dr Koh said the decision to appoint a Muslim principal would create a negative impression to those who have contributed to mission schools.

“At least, have a meeting with the school board. Maybe other names can be accepted,” he said, adding that he understood the school board's proposal of three candidates had been rejected.

Archbishop of Kuala Lumpur Tan Sri Murphy Pakiam was reported to have said the appointment of Datin Seri Zavirah Shaari as CBN principal was contrary to the Government's policy of consultation.

He said former prime minister Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad had affirmed the pledge to consult mission school authorities over the choice of school heads and teachers during a 1988 trip to Kota Kinabalu.

Pakiam appealed to the ministry's director-general Datuk Seri Abdul Ghafar Mahmud to reconsider the appointment and pick a candidate nominated by the school owners.
