KUALA LUMPUR: Tuan Hua Chinese School in Cambodia is recruiting teachers from Malaysia to teach primary and secondary students starting next year.
Founded by the Association of Chinese Teochew in Cambodia, Tuan Hua is the largest Chinese school in the country with over 10,000 students.
Teachers are being recruited to cope with the increasing number of students, especially after the school resumes classes after the Covid-19 pandemic.
As Chinese is now a popular second language in Cambodia, the school is facing an acute shortage of Chinese language teachers.
Set up by local clan associations since 1992, Chinese schools in Cambodia are facing the common problems of shortage in funds, teachers and textbooks.
In Malaysia, the effort of Chinese education activists contributing to the development of Chinese education has won the praises of Chinese-speaking communities throughout the world.
Sin Chew Daily reported on June 15 that Tuan Hua Chinese School is using the textbooks published by the United Chinese School Committees’ Association of Malaysia (Dong Zong).
Chinese teachers from China have suggested that the school continue to use textbooks from Malaysia instead of China because Chinese language is taught at these two countries as a foreign language.
Tuan Hua is hiring Chinese, mathematics and science teachers from Malaysia aged between 25 and 60. Retired teachers are welcome too.
Applicants must be physically healthy, free of any criminal record, and have received at least two doses of Covid-19 vaccines.
The salary is in the rage of US$1,000 to US$2,000 depending on experience and qualification.
Send your resume to [email protected] or call 019-389 9337 before July 5.
