Dilapidated school receives repair fund

Date:

SIBU: SK Sungai Naman near here has received an allocation of RM200,000 from the State Education Department (JPNS) to help repair the school.

The school is among 15 primary schools in the Dudong state constituency that are in a dilapidated condition with its wooden structures and facilities rotting.

SUPP Dudong Branch chairman Wong Ching Yong noted that the school building had been badly damaged due to termites.

“On August 4, after having a dialogue with hawkers at Pasar Ria Sibu Jaya, I, accompanied by a few members of our branch, went to visit the school.

“After the visit, I wrote a letter to Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg, Local Government and Housing Minister Datuk Sri Dr Sim Kui Hian, Education, Science and Technology Research Minister Datuk Seri Michael Manyin and Assistant Minister of Education, Science and Technology Research Dr Annuar Rapaee to apply for financial assistance,” he explained on Saturday (Aug 7).

He was relieved that JPNS through the Sibu District Education Office had allocated RM200,000 for SK Sungai Naman to carry out its repair work.

Meanwhile, school headmaster Admah Mohd expressed his appreciation to Wong for his commitment in helping to apply for the financial allocation.

He hoped the authorities would channel more funds to the school for repairing its roof.

Apart from SK Sungai Naman, 14 other primary schools in Dudong are SK Tanjung Latap, SK Nanga Assan, SK Sungai Salim, SK Ulu Sungai Salim, SK Batu Wong, SK Assan Nunggang, SK Ulu Durin Kiba, SK Nanga Pak, SK Sungai Durin, SK Sungai Menyan, SK Ulu Sungai Sengan, SK Ulu Sungai Naman, SK Kampung Banyok and SK Sungai Nibong.
