“For schools, a total of RM3.98 million has been approved for nine Chinese private secondary schools (SMPC), RM1.9 million for eight national type secondary schools (SMJK), RM8.1 million for 81 Chinese national type schools (SJK(C), RM4.1 million for 73 national primary/ secondary schools (mission) (SRK/SMK), RM1.1 million for 137 kindergartens and RM695,000 for 18 private schools (mission).
