A school that seems like a second home to bright students has shone the beacon of light for a better future.
SJKT Ladang Regent in Gemencheh, Negeri Sembilan is rejoicing after receiving the long-awaited approval from the Education Ministry to move into their new building.
The RM8.5 million new school building underwent two years of development, beginning in August 2014. The necessity for a new access road, the water supply, and the eventual MCO during the COVID-19 pandemic all caused delays that led to the handover being postponed.
According to the Facebook post by Alor Gajah MCA, the Deputy Education Minister and Vice Chairman of MCA, Datuk Mah Hang Soon assisted and delivered a letter of approval for SJKT Ladang Regent to utilise the new building.
He handed over the Certificate of Practical Completion (CPC) to Navaneetham, the school’s headmistress, during a tour of the old (current school) and new buildings, on 19th August.
Following the resolution of the school code, they would relocate to the brand-new, long-vacant facility to carry on with their educational practices.
The 251-student school has seen a number of difficult circumstances, including floods, snake encounters because of the land’s meadow surroundings, and a lack of classrooms, hence why relocating to a new structure is essential for them.
With such excellent news, the staff and students would be able to quickly adapt to the new school and put their safety worries to rest.
