Teachers' Day 2013: A Trip Down Memory Lane

Brinsford Lodge Crest

To commemorate Teachers' Day 2013, we invited some very special guests into the studio to remind us of how important teachers are to our society, and how much they can contribute to our future generations.

Dato' AR Peter, Datin Mawanchik Jais and Ben Chow all have one thing in common - at some point between 1955 and 1964, they attended the Malayan teacher training college at Brinsford Lodge, a small college nestled away in the English countryside. Initiated by the British as they were pulling out of Malaya in the 1950s, the college was intended to train young Malayans to be high quality teachers and replace the British teachers who would be leaving along with the decline of British colonial rule. Over the next 10 years, it produced over 1000 exceptional teachers who returned to pre-independence Malaysia, to contribute to its nation-building and begin their life-long effort to improve the quality of Malaysian education.
