KAJANG: With the completion of two new blocks by the middle of the year, SJK (C) Sungai Chua will finally have enough classrooms for a single session.
The Chinese primary school will start its single session in the morning next year.
MCA deputy president Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong said the RM3.7mil project, which began in June last year, was approved by Deputy Prime Minister Tan Sri Muhyiddin Yassin before the last general election.
“It is 80% completed now and we expect this to be finished by June or July this year. Both the parents and teachers have been waiting for many years for a single session.
“This project proves to be another success by the Barisan Nasional government to fulfil its promise to the people,” he said after visiting the project site at Sungai Chua new village.
The school, which was set up in 1952, currently has over 1,500 pupils using 21 classrooms.
The Education Ministry, said Dr Wee, had also approved two new Chinese primary schools in Hulu Langat.
“The SJK (C) Bandar Sungai Long project is 95% completed now,” he said, adding that the new school could accommodate more than 2,000 pupils.
However, Dr Wee said the fate of SJK (C) Kajang 2 in Kajang Utama was still uncertain.
“Until now, the project to build the new school cannot begin despite approval from the Federal Government many years ago. We have applied for land title for the school in April 2012. However, till now, we have received no news,” he said.
“We hope the state government will put aside political differences and let education be their priority.”
Meanwhile, MCA Youth lodged a police report against several Opposition leaders over allegations that party vice-president Datin Paduka Chew Mei Fun closed a Chinese primary school in Petaling Jaya.
The report was lodged against PKR’s Batu MP Tian Chua, and DAP’s Selangor executive councillor Ean Yong Hian Wah and Pantai Remis state assemblyman Nga Kor Ming for accusing Chew, who was Petaling Jaya Utara MP in 2000, of closing SJK (C) Damansara.
Its secretary-general Leong Kim Soon said the allegations had tarnished the good name and reputation of Chew, who is now Barisan Nasional candidate in the Kajang by-election.
The school, said Leong, was shifted due to a highway built next to the school, adding that “the original school is still operating”.
