SRJK(T) Dengkil students had a special Tamil lesson when Mohd Nazifuddin Najib, Prime Minister Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak’s son, joined them for a reading session, Malaysia Nanban reported.
Nazifuddin visited the Sepang school under the Youth On Unity NGO, which brings together successful private individuals who will be able to contribute to needy schools and students.
“Promoting unity among students and improving discipline are also part of the mission, as both are seen as deteriorating lately,” Nazifuddin said.
He presented teachers and students with gifts for the upcoming Teachers’ Day celebration before visiting classrooms and joining them in reading a Tamil book.
He also vowed to assist in the setting up of a health room in the school, as requested by headmaster M. Tamil Sekaran, and called on the room to be named after the headmaster.
Dengkil assemblyman Haji Shahrum Sharif, who accompanied Nazifuddin during the visit, pledged RM3,000 to repair the school’s science lab.
The school has 274 students and 25 teachers.
