The headmaster of Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Tamil SJK(T) Sungai Ara has ensured that going to school will be an enjoyable experience for his young pupils. The walls and floors of the school grounds have been painted with games of ‘Snake & Ladder’ and ‘Teng-Teng’. He also recommends teachers to take learning outside of class and explore the surroundings and has allocated reading and Internet-surfing areas.
Being a visionary, Headmaster Sangga has ensured that his school has met 9 out of 17 objectives under the United Nations Sustainable Develop­ment Goals. This includes a plastic and junk food ban, recycling efforts, growing their own produce on the school grounds and collecting trash on every Friday.
Headmaster Sangga is expecting to retire in the next 3 years but hopes that these practices will live on way beyond his time there.
