SANDAKAN: Kindergarten children numbering 150 from Kg. Melayu Bumiputera Sim-Sim Tabika KEMAS will be temporarily relocated to the nearby Tadika Sinar Harapan after its facility was destroyed by fire on last Sunday.
Tanjung Papat Assemblyman (ADUN), Datuk Raymond Tan, said they will provide donations such as clothes, shoes, and learning equipment for the affected children to resume with their learning activities.
“Tadika Sinar Harapan is able to accommodate kindergartens from Tabika KEMAS despite already having 150 children under its care. We have no problem if teachers from the affected nursery school to come and teach here.
“The will be here until we are able to find or construct new classrooms. I will discuss with KEMAS in Kota Kinabalu regarding this matter. Maybe we will rebuild the facility at the old site, but it will take time,” he said last Monday after visiting the incident location where four houses and one kindergarten school were destroyed at Kg. Melayu Bumiputera Sim-Sim in Sandakan.
Meanwhile, Sandakan Public Welfare Department has confirmed that the fire incident affected 59 victims from six families.-SayangSabah
