It all began in 1984 with the idea of a private secondary school being born in the mind of the late Bishop Datuk Simon Fung. He mooted this idea to protect the family structure. For up to this time many parents had been sending their children overseas at a very tender age. He and his initial Board hoped that by setting up Maktab Nasional, parents would refrain from sending their children overseas so early in life when the family bonding was extremely important. Since Maktab Nasional opened its doors in January 1985, the school grew so fast and three years later, a primary school was added – Sekolah Rendah Swasta Datuk Simon Fung.
During our years at the Likas Expo site, it was becoming clear that we needed our own building as our needs were exceeding the cramped quarters we were housed in. A fire in 1992 which destroyed the administration block, library and many classrooms of the primary school pushed us to acquire a piece of land in Kingfisher Park, Kuala Inanam. From then on, there was no looking back. Our first Headmaster, Mr. Mak Goon Wah, spent the first 10 years laying the foundations.
A great deal of support came from so many people, especially our parents who have helped us achieve our home and we look forward to many more successful years at SRS Datuk Simon Fung.
