A total of 9,287schoolchildren were unable to attend classes at 29 primary and secondary schools in Kelantan on the second day of the 2017 school session due to floods.

 

The State Education Department said in a statement that the six secondary and 23 primary schools were located in four districts, namely Pasir Mas, Kuala Krai, Tanah Merah and Tumpat.

 

It said the access roads to the schools were flooded and it was dangerous for the pupils, students and teachers to attempt to go to the schools.

 

The closure of the schools affected 7,746 students of 13 schools in Pasir Mas, 588 students of six schools in Kuala Krai, 953 students of five schools in Tanah Merah and 214 students of a school in Tumpat, it said.

 

It named the Pasir Mas schools as SK Kampung Baru, SK Rahmat, SK Gual Tokdeh, SK Rantau Panjang, SK Lubok Stol, SK Sri Rantau Panjang 2, SK Kok Pauh, SK Sri Rantau Panjang 1, Sekolah Agama Bantuan Kerajaan (SABK) Al Falah Siram, SABK Diniah Bongor, SJK(C) Khay Boon, SMK Rantau Panjang and SMK Tiang Chandi.

 

The Kuala Krai schools were SK Pemberian, SK Bahagia, SK Ladang Taku, SK Pasir Kelang, SK Kuala Nal and SABK Saadatul Qura, it said.

 

The five of the six schools in Tanah Merah were SMK Ladang Kerilla, SK Ladang Kerilla, SK Sokor, SK Kampung Panjang and SK Tebing Tinggi while in Tumpat it was SK Pulau Beluru, it added.

 

The department said 788 teachers and other staff of the schools were also affected by the closure.

 

The department said it was monitoring the situation in the flood-affected areas and would make an announcement when the schools could re-open.

 

In Terengganu, State Education Department director Shafruddin Ali Hussin said only three of the 11 flood-hit schools in Terengganu remained closed.
