IPOH: Parents whose children have been selected for national service will receive letters from the NS Training Department informing them of the pick-up points for the transport to the campsites on Feb 16. 

MCA Youth secretary-general Loh Seng Kok said the department, which would finalise the locations today, would also announce the pick-up points through the media.  

“All participants will receive letters on what to bring and what not to bring, where to meet and other details. 

“There will definitely be pick-up points in Ipoh and other parts of Perak, such as Lumut,” he said after a briefing organised by the Perak MCA at its headquarters here on Tuesday. 

Among the speakers was department director-general Kamaruzaman Mohd Noor who assured parents that there would be facilities for the children to recharge their cellular phones and wash clothes. 

Loh said that of the 85,000 trainees selected nationwide, 8,970 were chosen from Perak. 

The trainees would be randomly posted to 41 campsites throughout Malaysia. 

During the briefing, the parents were told that the Segari camp in Lumut, one of three camps in Perak, was still not ready and could only accommodate 320 trainees instead of the projected 680. 

The remaining 360 trainees will be temporarily put up at the Teluk Rubiah camp in Manjung and the National Service Centre in Kampung Baru, Ayer Tawar, which can each accommodate 840 trainees.
