DUNGUN: With only two days to go before the start of the new school session, armed forces personnel stepped up to clean flood-hit SK Kampung Pasir Raja here today.

A team of 33 personnel from Company C 18 of the Royal Malay Regiment (Para) cleaned all the classrooms early this morning to ensure the school’s 53 students can resume their studies comfortably on Tuesday.

SK Kampung Pasir parent-teacher association chairman Raja Shahdan Musa said he was grateful to the soldiers for their willingness to lend a helping hand because it was difficult to clean the school’s three blocks without extra help from outside.

“Our village was hit by floods on Dec 23 and the temporary relief centre (PPS) at Kampung Pasir Raja community hall was open from Dec 24 until yesterday.

“But barely three hours after it was closed at 5pm, the river overflowed again and the residents are now back at the PPS.

“I am very grateful and would like to say a big thank you to the armed forces personnel for volunteering their time and energy to clean our school,” he said.

The Kampung Pasir Raja community hall PPS, which was reopened after being closed yesterday, is now sheltering 66 flood victims from 24 families. - FMT
