No politics for us

AS the chairman of SMK Subang Utama’s Parents-Teachers Association, I was interviewed over the phone on June 25 by a reporter from The Star on the school’s ex-prefects reunion, as requested by Hannah Yeoh, the assemblyman for Subang Jaya.

Specifically representing the school PTA, I gave my stand and statement as follows:

  • We will not get involved or caught in any political issue.
  • We have no objection to the present prefects who are studying in SMKSU to attend the above function, so long as their parents’ consent is given.
  • We have no objection to Ms Hannah Yeoh, as an ex-head prefect, attending the function.
I am disappointed that the above statements were not reflected in The Star report (Nation, June 26).

Chairman, PTA, SMKSU
Subang Jaya, Selangor
