Some 65 national-type primary schools in Sabah will receive aid to carry out repairs besides expanding the number of their classrooms and other works, said Deputy Education Minister Datuk Dr Wee Ka Siong.

The aid, he said, to be announced over several weeks, would be “substantially higher” than the RM9.35mil assistance the schools received last year.

“A handful of schools have reported that their dilapidated buildings need to be replaced. One school in Beaufort reported that one of its blocks was damaged by floods,” he said after meeting officials of the Sabah Chinese Schools Development Committee here yesterday.

The assistance, added Dr Wee, would also enable schools to buy more furniture for their teachers and students.

Asked about the quantum of increase in the aid, he said it would definitely be more than 10% and that the details would be announced after the Chinese New Year.

The funds were part of the yearly aid to Chinese schools with government, Tamil and mission schools also receiving similar aid.

“No community will be neglected,” assured Dr Wee, adding that Sabah was among the states which received the highest amount of aid.
