13th February, 2018

KOTA KINABALU: Some 1,546 students and pupils of SMK Pekan Telipok and SK Pekan Telipok started their learning activity in their new school buildings yesterday, thanks to the Royal Malaysian Navy (RMN) who helped the school to relocate.

A total of 105 RMN personnel from the Eastern Fleet Command, Sepanggar helped the schools to move their equipment including tables and chairs from their old buildings in Telipok to the new buildings in Jalan Kayu Madang, yesterday.

RMN Eastern Logistic Headquarters Chief of Staff, Captain Jailani Adnan who led the mission said that it is part of RMN’s community service called Jiwa Murni.

“Everyone knows that RMN’s role is to make sure that the country is peaceful, but during peace time, we also have our responsibility towards the community such as the programme today,” he said when met at the schools’ old building.

Thanking RMN for the community service, SK Pekan Telipok headmaster, Suhaimi Abdullah said that the programme has enabled the pupils and the students to continue their studies with minimal interruption.

“When we were allowed to relocate to the new buildings, we were facing logistics problem, and if we were to hire contractors, it could cost a lot of money. We had a series of discussions with SMK Pekan Telipok principal and management and we decided to get help from the navy.

“We are very grateful to the RMN,” he said.

The programme was also attended by Kiulu Assemblyman, Datuk Joniston Bangkuai who commended RMN for being concerned with the community. -By Eric Bagang
