Damage school to move into an industrial park

SK Taman Sungai Besi Indah general workers packing books and files to prepare for the big move.

SK Taman Sungai Besi Indah in Seri Kembangan, which was declared unsafe, would be relocated to Balakong Industrial Park.

Preparations are in full swing for the relocation.

General workers were seen busily packing books and files to take to the school’s new temporary location.

A school official, who declined to be named, said the move would probably take two weeks.

PIBG deputy chairman Zaidy Idris said the Education Ministry had instructed that classes begin by May 5 to ensure the pupils’ education is not disrupted for too long.

In a statement, the ministry confirmed the new building would be renovated to accommodate classrooms, canteens, labs, library and a staffroom.

Education Ministry secretary-general Tan Sri Dr Madinah Mohamad also said a notice will be issued to the developer Bludream City Development Sdn Bhd to rectify the problem as well as collect payment for the relocation costs.

The new building was selected from several suggestions by the Parent-Teacher Association and was chosen for its proximity to the school’s current location.

The new temporarily school would be housed in a four-storey building. It is approximately 10,000sq ft in size and has eight halls as well as large open spaces, which will be converted, into classrooms for all 1,228 students. The new place is located 3km from the existing school.

The school was declared unsafe on Monday after gaping holes appeared on the wall of Block B which houses a computer room, toilet, canteen, library and classrooms for Year One to Three pupils.

The Public Works Department (JKR) had ordered the school to evacuate and said the cracks were caused by construction work at a luxury condominium project next to the school.
