Permanent site for school urged


KEDAH MIC chairman Datuk Dr S. Ananthan has called for a permanent solution to SJK (T) Ladang Katumba’s woes, Makkal Osai reported.

The school, located about 3km from the main road connecting Kuala Ketil and Baling in Kedah, is surrounded by oil palm plantations and forests and serves residential areas in Kampung Dara and Sungai Tawar.

The landowner is said to have written to the Baling district education department for the school to vacate by the end of March.

Following discussions, the pupils and staff members were temporarily moved to the SJK (T) Binjol in Kuala Ketil, about 13km away, said school board chairman M. Krishnan.

Ananthan, who is the party’s national Tamil schools action committee chairman, urged the Education Ministry to allocate a permanent place for the school at a plot near Kampung Dara.
