SMJK Katholik in Petaling Jaya is in need of funds for the upkeep of its building and the school plans to have a fundraising dinner on May 24.
Since it was founded in 1956, the school had expanded into a big institution with six blocks of classrooms, including student facilities.
Catholic High School is a double- session school with 3,000 students enrolled.
Currently, the school is facing a shortage of office space and classrooms.
The school requires a new block to give them the additional space.
With several buildings, an abundance of facilities and the large number of students, the school has to spend a considerable amount of money yearly on utility bills.
The electricity bill alone is estimated to amount to approximately RM200,000 a year.
Therefore, the school needs to have a viable way to cope with the payment of electricity bills and the Solar PV Project is a possible solution.
The school, the Marist Brothers, the Board of Governors, the Parent-Teacher Association and the alumni are appealing to the public to donate generously to enable the school to have a new building and to implement the Solar PV Project.
A fundraising dinner will be held at the SJKC Sungai Way hall at 7pm on May 24.
