Lee Hah Ing Scholar’s Reception

11 Jul 2008

On 11 July, TCTF invited its Lee Hah Ing Scholars for tea at the Tan Chin Tuan Mansion. For the first-time, scholars past and present – from 1990s to the current batch – gathered to meet their benefactors, as well as Mr Lee Hah Ing, 94, who was guest-of-honour.

About Mr Lee Hah Ing
Born in China in 1914, Mr Lee Hah Ing graduated from the Raffles College in Singapore in 1934 and returned to teach at ACS Teluk Anson, ACS Ipoh and Methodist Boys’ School in Kuala Lumpur before joining ACS Singapore in 1952. He served as Principal of the Anglo-Chinese School from 1961 to 1969.

He served as honorary advisor to the Foundation for several years before retiring in 2006, at aged 92.

In 1992, Tan Sri Dr Tan Chin Tuan established a scholarship in Mr Lee’s name to honour his contributions to building up ACS as Singapore’s premier school that sends well-rounded, educated and moral young adults into the world.
