Proposal to set up temporary school for students in Felda Sahabat, Lahad Datu

LAHAD DATU, March 11 — The Lahad Datu Education Office has proposed to set up a temporary ‘school’ for students in Felda Sahabat, to ensure they do not miss classes, if their schools remained closed longer.

Jummiah Tee, a deputy officer at the Lahad Datu district Education office said the setting up of a temporary education centre would ensure children from the three schools that remained closed in the Red Zone, would not miss their classes.

However, the setting up of such a centre would depend on the security report and approval from the police.

“We are not allowed to enter the Felda Sahabat area, so we have asked the teachers to identify those who have been shifted to temporary ‘homes’. We do not want the ongoing feud to affect the studies of children,” Jummiah Tee told reporters here today after a briefing to finalise which schools were allowed to carry one.

Jummiah Tee said 997 students from Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Lok Buani, SK Tanjung Labian and SK Fajar Harapan are unable to attend school since their schools were closed on March 4.- BERNAMA
