Pupils to sit out for a week more

4th January, 2019

By ALIZA ALAWI

TELUPID: Some 452 pupils of SK Pekan Telupid will continue to have their lessons under the canopy for another week as repair works to the damaged block, which was struck by a storm last year, will be completed.

The students affected are those in Primary 2 to 5, said Telupid education officer Mahanin Osman, who assured that the children would be able to return to their block after the repair works were done.

The works involved replacing the roof, ceiling, repairing the floor and other damaged parts.

“What was being shared in the social media of the students’ predicament is wrongly painted,” he said, adding that repairs began a week after the holiday break.

In anticipating the new term, the authorities have set up temporary canopies.

“We have to ensure the safety of the children and that they can study in comfort after the repairs are done,” he said.

According to Mahanin, the emergency funds to repair the school came from the Sabah Education Department. Meanwhile, school principal, Dominic Nara said the school was struck by strong winds in June last year.

“For the temporary measure, we have no problems conducting teaching,” he said, adding that there were sufficient teachers.

SK Pekan Telupid, which has 24 classrooms, has 800 students who are divided in two sessions with the Primary 1 to 3 taking the afternoon session.
