Khaw Choon Ean, née Teoh Choon Ean, (Sixth Form class of 1972) stands tall as one of the country’s pioneers in the field of gymnastics in Malaysia. From an early start in the gymnasium at St George’s, training with her teachers Mrs Koay Teng Hay and Mr Lim Chong Ghee, Choon Ean went on to win medals in state and national competitions. She was also captain of the gymnastics and swimming team and house captain for Mahsuri House. Epitomising the can-do spirit of St George’s, Choon Ean’s achievements were not limited to the domain of sports: she was the editor of the school magazine editorial board, as well as being a school librarian and prefect. Choon Ean was also an accomplished artist in school. Her circular wall mural, ‘Malay Dancers’ hung in the School Hall for many years.
Consultant and Head of the Cardiac Morphology Unit at Royal Brompton and Harefield Hospitals, London, Professor Ho Siew Yen (née Ng Siew Yen), says that St George’s has been ‘fundamental’ in her development as a scientist. She is a regular speaker at international conferences and teaches courses in cardiology, electrophysiology, paediatric cardiology, cardiac surgery, pathology and veterinary science. Her work has contributed to clarifying the anatomy of complex heart defects in children, and has helped guide doctors to improve diagnoses and helped surgeons to improve techniques for repairing holes in the heart. Siew Yen, who completed her Upper Sixth Form at St George’s in 1968, is a Fellow of the European Society of Cardiology, Fellow of the Royal College of Pathologists (London) and a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy (UK) and a published author of several specialist medical books.
Dr Chee Heng Leng studied at St George’s from 1970 (Form 4) to 1973 (Upper 6), after which she headed for the United States where she had been offered a scholarship to study at Wellesley College, Massachusetts. She graduated in 1977 with a Bachelor of Arts with honours in biological sciences, and then went on to study for her M.A. in nutritional sciences at the Harvard School of Public Health. She returned to Malaysia in 1979, and was employed at the Universiti Putra Malaysia. In the 1980s and 1990s, Heng Leng, with the spirit and determination often encountered in many St George’s alumni, participated actively in the movements for social change in Malaysia. She was one of the founding members of the Women’s Development Centre and the All Women’s Action Society.
