Cheong Koon Seng House (CKS)

ACS Independent

As one of the earliest ACSians, Mr Cheong Koon Seng joined the school in 1891. A successful businessman and a well-known public figure as the Municipal Councillor, he was for many years the President of ACSOBA. In the 1934 ACS Magazine, Mr Cheong was memorialized as “a genial friend, a sound businessman and a loyal old boy of the school to which he had rendered valuable and ungrudging help.” Working closely with the Methodist Mission, he helped to acquire the land at Barker Road where the ACS (Barker Road) complex now stands.
