SK Ulu Ansuan facilities to be upgraded, says Education Ministry

KUALA LUMPUR: Facilities at Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Ulu Ansuan in Telupid, Sabah will be upgraded for the well-being of the school community, says the Education Ministry.

In a statement on Sunday (Nov 19), the ministry said construction work involving academic and administrative blocks as well as other facilities, including furniture purchases is currently underway.

In addition, it said the construction of four new teachers' quarters units was approved during the presentation of Budget 2024.

The total cost of the projects, including the construction of quarters, is RM12.5 million, it added.

"As a short-term solution for the teacher accommodation problem at the school, the ministry has completed the maintenance project for the quarters with an allocation of RM200,000,” the ministry said.

On Saturday (Nov 18), the media reported how SK Ulu Ansuan headmaster, George Odol, who is due to retire on Nov 27, spent over three years staying in the school’s storeroom just to be able to carry out his duties in educating his pupils in the interior of Sabah.

The ministry said it remains committed to improving access and facilities at all schools nationwide that require attention to ensure the well-being, safety and welfare of teachers, students and the entire school community. - Bernama
