Old Chong Cheng School

Chong Cheng School, not to be confused with Chung Cheng High.






Does anyone know where it is?

Chong Cheng is Chong (2) Zheng (4)

Chung Cheng is Zhong (1) Zheng (4)




I think it's still there like 2 or 3 years ago.SPI featured it's photo (mistakenly) during its investigations to Chung Cheng High's reputed haunting.


I also recall seeing a nostalgic looking art deco former school building somewhere in the city. I know it sounds very vague...

I think it is around either Middle Road area or Kampong Glam area. Been a few years since I last passed by it.

Old Monfort School is demolished. Yes... It is rumoured to be haunted. That is because there is a graveyard beside it around 15 years ago? Just before it was demolished, I went into it and it was so run down that I cant really proceed further than a few steps. The ceiling might just fall anytime.

When the graveyard ready for "shifting" (where are the remains are transferred), a lot of weird sounds were heard. Not really pertaining to Old Monfort School itself but the entire area surrounding it.

the old Montfort was definitely creepy..I once went to explore it with 2 frens in 1997 late at night...I remember the corridor leading down to the toilet at the end was so spooky!
