KUCHING: A new multipurpose court which will be built at SMK St Anthony, Sarikei shows the state government’s commitment to providing proper infrastructure for students to pursue their education.
Repok assemblyman Datuk Seri Huang Tiong Sii said the school which has a rich history needed a solid plan of redevelopment.
“As we know, this school is not only one of the earliest educational institutions in the district but often has excellent academic and co-curricular records of achievements.
