KULIM: The federal government has approved a RM100 million allocation to upgrade and renovate SJK (T) schools in the country as part of the transformation programme for Tamil vernacular schools.
Minister in the Prime Minister's Department Datuk Seri G. Palanivel said the government also agreed to approve the construction of six new SJK(T) schools nationwide, with two of them in Kedah.
The other schools will be build in Perak, Selangor and other states.
Palanivel, while announcing the windfalls for Tamil vernacular schools, said the allocation was made possible by the first ever direct collaboration between the Prime Minister's Department and the Education Ministry.
He said the approvals were obtained earlier this month. About 100,000 pupils attend Tamil vernacular schools nationwide.
