Smart TVs a necessity for schools in Sarawak, says deputy minister

More schools will be provided with smart televisions once funds are made available by the Sarawak government.

State Deputy Education, Innovation and Talent Development Minister Datuk Dr Annuar Rapaee said the move was to empower teachers.

“Ideally, we would suggest to the state government that schools without smart TVs should receive them.

“We are aware that national- type schools already possess many smart TVs, but we have also started the programme for religious schools.

“If we manage to secure funding from the state government, we can ensure that every school in Sarawak has easy access to smart TVs, especially in this IT age where it is a necessity,” he said after attending a festive celebration at SK Abang Ali in Kampung Hilir, Sibu.

Dr Annuar said 18 smart TVs were distributed to nine schools in his Nangka constituency last year and another 18 would be given out this year.

“Going forward, we will collaborate with parent-teacher associations to secure funding to ensure that every classroom in the Nangka constituency will have a smart TV,” he added.

After the event, Dr Annuar visited three houses in Teku as part of his grassroots “Bejarah Raya” visitation programme.
