SK Sitiawan in Kampung Sitiawan, here, recently received a RM20,000 donation from Transport Minister Datuk Seri Kong Cho Ha.
SITIAWAN: The money will be used to convert the teacher's room into the school hall. It will also be used to improve the old classrooms.
The school, established in the early 1920s, is one of the oldest in the Manjung district, near here.
Currently, the school has 350 pupils and 39 teachers.
Speaking at the school's open day recently, Kong encouraged the students to keep abreast of advances in technology.
"Children today adapt quickly to technologies and are highly active in social media.
"All these are a 'must-know' to stay ahead in a competitive, border-less world," he said.
Kong also touched on the dwindling number of male teachers in the country.
He also said that Kampung Sitiawan has grown by leaps and bounds over the years and made good progress in tandem with Manjung district's development plans.
Meanwhile, a host of activities were lined up for the open day organised by the school Parent-Teacher Association (PTA).
They included an aerobics session, colouring contest, telematches, jogathon, health screening and a Fire and Rescue Department exhibition.
Parents and those living nearby attended the event.
Kong was welcomed on arrival by the school headmistress Umi Khalthsom Abd Rashid and PTA president and Sitiawan village chief Mohamad Kassim Mohd Said.
