This school in the sleepy town of Lubok China, in Alor Gajah, Melaka, looks like any other Chinese school preparing to celebrate Chinese New Year.
But a closer look at its student population will surprise many: the majority of its 51 students are Malays, with only a handful of Chinese and Indian pupils.
SJK (C) Sin Min in Lubok China, the only Chinese primary school in the township, was built in 1931, when the town had a large Chinese community. Over the years, their number dwindled.
