Petaling Jaya school gets RM100,000 for repairs from Selangor govt

SMK Assunta’s retaining wall has been repaired, thanks to an allocation provided by the state government for partially aided schools.

THE damaged roofs, retaining walls and drains at SMK (P) Assunta in Petaling Jaya have been repaired in time for the school’s reopening next month.

Bukit Gasing assemblyman Rajiv Rishyakaran said the school received RM100,000 from the RM24mil budget allocated last year by the Selangor government to assist partially aided schools with general upkeep and maintenance.

“The funds were supposed to be disbursed last year but it was delayed due to Covid-19.

“Nevertheless, it has been given in a timely manner so the school can pay the contractor who recently completed the job.

“The state has allocated another RM24mil this year for the same purpose and schools can apply based on need, ” he said.

Rajiv presented a mock cheque for the amount to the school’s Parent-Teacher Association chairman Alan Goh.

“Usually we receive RM80,000 in total a year. Last year’s allocation was the highest.

“The school is 61 years old and many repairs and maintenance works are needed, ” said Goh.
