The newly constructed SJKT PJS 1 is the 100th Tamil school to be built in Selangor. In addition to that, the school library has recently received RM10,000 worth of books from the government. Under Deputy Prime Minister Ahmad Zahid Hamini, Arvind Appalasamy, who had been appointed the Special Officer in Charge of Handling Matters of the Indian Community, attended the inauguration of this event. The school headmistress spoke about how this aid will immensely benefit the students and parents.
This will help us in a really big way. Since the school is newly constructed, there are many things that we have to get done. Even though there have been obstacles, we can always reform them. This library and these books will be of great service in developing greater reading comprehension among students. It will also help students acquire greater general knowledge.
At the same time, parents who live nearby can also use the library during school hours. I believe that they too can acquire new information and knowledge from the reading materials available.

Vetrivelan, the leader of the Malaysian Tamil schools, had also expressed how this decision will greatly benefit the Indian community and the development of Tamil schools.
We have to completely commit ourselves to the development of Tamil schools. Moreover, the Indians who live in this area should use this library to its full capacity. This is a new library. I have never seen a library like this before. It is vast, and if it were to be used efficiently, the school’s development would greatly benefit from it.
