Each of them received RM100 from the bank’s business tithes totalling RM37,700. This was the second time eligible students from the school received money from the bank.

“I am planning to use the money to buy a red baju melayu Teluk Blangah to be worn to the mosque for the Hari Raya prayers,” said Md Shahrul.

Meanwhile, Norainamira said she would buy her third baju kurung in Kuala Lumpur when her family went to the capital city for Hari Raya shopping.

Norsahidayani said presently there were 53 students attending six special education classes at the school.
