CAUSE FOR CELEBRATION: Site and budget for SJK (C) Pei Hwa 2 approved
JOHOR BARU: THE first Chinese vernacular primary school will be built in the residential area of Permas Jaya, here.
The Higher Education Ministry has identified a site for the construction of SJK (C) Pei Hwa 2, said its minister Datuk Seri Mohd Khaled Nordin.
"The government has approved the building of the school and a site has also been identified. The allocation for the project is RM5.5 million," he said.
Khaled announced the good news at the Pasir Gudang parliamentary constituency Chinese New Year open house at the Johor Baru Central Municipal Council Hall in Taman Johor Jaya, here, on Saturday.
The announcement was greeted with cheers and applause from the 3,000 gathered at the event.
Khaled said the ministry understood the parents' problem of having to send their children to schools in Taman Kota Puteri and Plentong in Masai.
Also present were Johor Jaya assemblyman Tan Cher Puk and Permas Jaya assemblyman M M Samy.
The open house is an annual event organised by Barisan Nasional Pasir Gudang division and the Pasir Gudang Village Coordinating Committee.
Tan said the news would be well received by the Permas Jaya community.
"I'm sure it is not only the Chinese community that is rejoicing at the news but also other races who are keen to enrol their children in a Chinese primary school," he added.
