History of SJK (C) Union
Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan (Cina) Union or more commonly known as SJK (C) Union was established back in 1952 to cater to the education needs of the growing population of Ulu Sepetang, Taiping. It has 6 classrooms and students from different racial backgrounds attended this school.
But as time passes, many of the Ulu Sepetang population moved on to larger towns and cities in search for better opportunities, and this has led to a serious drop in student enrolments in SJK (C) Union.
In 2009, SJK (C) Union had a total of only 3 students, 1 boy and 2 girls. And the school had only 3 teachers. In 2014, it’s student number was reduced to zero and there was an urgent need to relocate the school to a more urbanized location where high growth population was evident to cater to the needs of Chinese education.
To keep SJK (C) Union in existence, The School Board has been looking at possible relocation options over the past 10 years. When the school was finally granted approval to relocate to Cyberjaya in 2013, the board met up with MCT Berhad, a public listed developer who generously donated a sizeable parcel of the 6 acres land within their Lakefront development to build the school.
