Abstract: 学者过去曾对由基督教会开办的新马华文中学概况进行分析,不过学者偏向于将这些学校与非教会支持的“传统”华校归纳为同一组。虽然同样在新马独立前由非政府组织创建与支持,但是像公教中学那样的教会华校无论在校务管理或者在教学上,与“传统”华校有明显的差别,绝对不能将两者混为一体。历史线索证明了教会华校是在华校与英语主导的教会学校的基础上形成。拥有近80年悠久历史的公教中学,秉持着重视学生掌握中英双语的教学理念,培养出一些在新加坡政界与艺能界的知名人士。调查证明了公教汲取教会学校与华文学校的精华,所以不能简单地将公教与有相同独特办校模式的教会华校,与“传统”华校归纳为一组。Scholars over the years have touched on the overview of Chinese-medium schools created by the Christian churches, but they tend to group these schools with the “traditional” ones that are not supported by the churches. Though created and supported during the pre-independence days in Singapore and Malaysia by non-governmental organisations, there are distinct differences between these so-called “missionary Chinese-medium schools”, such as Catholic High School, and the “traditional” Chinese-medium schools in terms of school management and teaching. As such, these two types of schools must not be grouped together. Historical evidences have shown that the missionary Chinese-medium schools are created on the basis of Chinese-medium schools and dominantly English-speaking Christian schools. With a long history of nearly 80 years and holding onto the teaching ideology of focusing students to become bilingual with Chinese and English, Catholic High School has produced some of the well-known personalities in the entertainment and the political arenas in Singapore. Study has shown that Catholic High has drawn on quintessence from both the Christian schools and the Chinese-medium schools, thus it cannot simply, together with other missionary Chinese-medium schools that run on the similar model, be placed together with the “traditional” schools as a homogenous group.
