Other then the late Brother Liu Kwai Choong, Brother Siew Kow also taught me to be a good scout.

Our condolences to Siew Kow’s family too. He was one person who seldom gets angry or upset. A true Methodist.  The perfect gentlemen.

My deepest condolences to Siew Kow’s family. Had been hearing his name the day I joined the scouts. It’s a regret that I did not had much close encounter with him. Thank you Siew Kow for everything I’m enjoying here.

Yes, I remember Brother Scout Siew Kow as the quiet one who led by example whether we were in the school having our 10th KL scouting activities or camping somewhere.
May He Rest in Peace!  Gone to the Happy Hunting Ground!

Your Brother Scout

During my short time as a scout, I only met the legendary Mr. Siew Kow
once, but have heard his name many times from Old Boys’ and Scouters.
May he rest in peace.

My condolence to the family of the late Mr.Siew Kow. I don’t really know Mr Siew Kow personally although he was teaching in the Primary School when I was also in the primary school but was never given an opportunity to be in his class. He was then teaching in lower secondary and I was also not under his care when I was in the scouts. The only moment when I remember was helping the late Mr Siew Kow move his house to the second storey along the now Jalan Maharajalela which Sze Tin have so much found memories of.

With sadness we lost another comrade. Though he has not taught me before, his colleague, later wife did and was my class teacher in STD 2 (1961).

Mr. Siew Kow was my Class Teacher of Std6A in 1971. He taught us Art, Science, Geography among other subjects. An excellent and very dedicated teacher who went to great lengths in bringing all sorts of models, apparatus, utensils etc into class for our learning experience. He was both personal in approach and strict in discipline at the same time. May his soul rest in peace.

This is the teacher who had changed my life & put me in where I am now. Without him I could be just a store-keeper to the most. His love for his profession, his humanity & an unselfishness attitude had pull me out from my parents’ home of poverty. I am wondering how many teachers in this time have similar attitude & quality. May he enjoy peace in his eternal life.

Together with Kwai Choong they were legends in 10th KL . My deepest condolence to the family.

Tan Chee Chong in Kuala Lumpur
My sincere condolences to the bereaved family.
I never got a chance to be taught by Mr. Siew Kow but if my memory does not fail me, he was quite big and fair in complexion and taught Arts subjects ?  Was he the teacher that directed the students to paint the mural on the wall of the Primary School Office block ?
