Be fully involved in activities run by schools, PTA members reminded

MIRI: Members of the any parents-teachers association (PTA) should not shy away from activities conducted by the school or the association, for that matter.

According to Assistant Minister of Early Childhood Education and Family Development Rosey Yunus, they play significant role in helping schools achieve great achievements.

“In today’s education era, parents should be far-sighted and be all out in school development, both in academic and non-curriculum,” she said in officiating at SK Kelapa Sawit No 4 PTA’s annual general meeting (AGM) recently.

Rosey, who is Bekenu assemblywoman, pointed out PTA as a vital channel to bridge the communications between parents and the school management.

The association, she said, could help schools to address various issues, especially on the academic performance of students.

At the same time, she called upon any school management to update to their respective district Education Office on any infrastructure or upgrading project.

“If your school is facing problem with the contractor appointed to undertake a project, the school management should inform the nearest district Education Office for further action.”

Rosey said such commitment was a must in order to ensure that the project would be carried out according to schedule and specification in a way that it would not affect school operations.

Later, the assistant minister presented a Minor Rural Project (MRP) grant worth RM20,000 to SK Kelapa Sawit No 4, in addition to distribution of learning and supporting materials worth RM3,000 to the school. PTA chairperson Hadrah Hamzah accepted the cheques on its behalf. .
