PASIR GUDANG: The Education Ministry has allocated RM6mil for the development of a temporary cabin to replace the old building of SK Perigi Acheh, here.

Johor education and information committee chairman Aznan Tamin said that the development is expected to start in June this year and would be completed by early December.

"The school was previously closed in July 2021 due to structural issues, and the students have been relocated to the nearby school, SK Tanjung Langsat.

"So we can expect the school to be reopened by January next year," he said when met by reporters after conducting a working visit to the school in Kampung Perigi Acheh, here, on Wednesday (Feb 21).

Aznan added that the development would involve two phases, namely the development of the temporary cabin and the soil treatment work.

"The temporary cabin will be developed using a skeleton frame and cement board that can last between seven and nine years.

"There are currently 105 students enrolled at the schools with 12 teachers," he said, adding that the Johor government had also allocated RM50,000 to help transfer the students to their new school once it was opened.

Aznan also informed that the Johor government had also sent a request to the Education Ministry for the development of a permanent school building.

"The request was submitted under the Fifth Rolling Plan of the 12th Malaysia Plan (MP12) for the year 2025," he said.
