SJK(T) Ladang Tebrau finally took possession of its new preschool building after two years of construction and several delays in approvals, Makkal Osai reported.
This Johor Baru preschool was one of 33 approved in 2017 under the previous administration, which allocated a total of RM10mil for 33 preschools.
School endowment board chairman Datuk K. Purushothaman said there were delays in getting approvals from the relevant authorities, which meant the building could not be occupied.
But with the tireless efforts of all parties involved, including the school’s headmaster, the approvals were obtained and the keys handed over to the school at last.
The new preschool, which includes two classrooms, teaching equipment, toilets, and a sports field, was completed at a cost of RM400,000.
The effort to build the school, which began under the former deputy education minister Datuk P. Kamalanathan, came to fruition after four years.
Classes would begin next month, Purushothaman said.
