SJK (C) Chung Hwa, Kualu Penyu - 3 years without water


Sabah DAP Beaufort chief, Jinlin Abdul Rahman with the branch member Ong Boon Hoo visited the SJK (C) Chung Hwa yesterday to find out the reason why there is no water supply to the school for as long as three years . The Jabatan Air had cut off the water supply to the school due to no payment from the education department. The school has been depending on rain water stored in tanks during rainy days. There is no water for the toilets and washing hands, it is very smelly there and especially in this time of H1N1 wide spread, all the hands must be washed thoroughly. The parents, students and teachers are complaining very much. The teachers who live in the school also faced the problem of not having water for shower, they have to go to the school toilet to use the water from the rain water tank.

During the visit Jinlin, he met some parents and students and they all wanted DAP to bring up the issue to the Education Department and ask them to pay the Water department the outstanding bills. There is no reason for the bills not paid, and water department should not cut the supply to the school. The school consists of 120 student and ten teachers. The principal of the school should immediately bring up the case and seek help from the Education department.

Jinlin said he wants the Education Department, the principal, the school management board to immediately work to get the water supply back to the school. The school should not have one day without water. The rain water collected is not clean and not fit for consuming.

There are some other schools in the Kuala Penyu area having the same problem. DAP hopes the situation can be put right immediately by the Education Department, and Jabatan Air should not cut the school water supply. The Supply must be reconnected for the sack of the student and teachers.

瓜拉班尤中华小学三年没有水供
沙巴民主行动党保佛负责人,吉林阿都拉曼与党员王文和昨天访问了瓜拉班尤中华小学,去视察该学三年没有水供的问题。 水务局切断该小学的水源供应,是由于教育部没有支付其水费。 该学校目前只能依靠储存在水箱里雨水。 因为没有水洗手和冲洗厕所,所以发出恶臭及非常不卫生,尤其是在 H1N1病毒广泛蔓延的期间。 为了预防病毒的传染,学生必须彻底清洗双手,但是没有自来水如何能够保持干净呢? 该处的家长,学生和老师们不断的抱怨。 尤其是住在学校宿舍的老师们面临着没有水洗澡和如厕的问题,他们必须前往使用雨水储存箱的学校厕所来冲凉。

在访问的期间,吉林会见了一些家长和学生,他们都希望民行党向教育部提出他们学校面对的问题,并且要求他们尽快清还水务局的水费。 没有理由教育部迟迟不清还该水单,而且水务局也不应切断该小学的水供。这所学校共有120名学生和10多位教师。学校校长应该向教育部寻求帮助。

吉林说,他希望教育部,校长,学校董事部立即着手工作,尽快让该学校获得水供。学校不应该一天没有水,而且收集到的雨水也不干净和不适合。
还有其他在瓜拉班尤区的一些学校也面对相同的问题。沙巴民主行动党希望教育部能够立即纠正该情况,及水务局也不应切断学校的水供。 该些学校的水源供应必须重新接回,以解决该些校学生和教师们的问题。
