Due to a significant increase in pupil enrollment over the years, SJK(C) Boon Beng in Sungai Bakap is currently raising funds to build a new school building and multipurpose hall.

Headmaster Tan Saw Hoon stated that the proposed new school building and multipurpose hall would be constructed on the existing school field.

“Meanwhile, the small piece of land beside the school will be converted into the new school field. The estimated cost for these projects is around RM10 million.

“We plan to organise more charity programmes to raise the necessary funds, which we expect to achieve within two years.

“We also urge the corporate sector and the public to assist us in this endeavour.

“With the new school building and multipurpose hall, we can provide a better learning environment for our pupils,” Tan told Chief Minister Chow Kon Yeow during his visit to the school on Friday.

Tan also expressed gratitude to the Nibong Tebal parliamentary service centre for its RM50,000 contribution.

Meanwhile, Chief Minister Chow stated that the Penang government would consider providing a special allocation to SJK(C) Boon Beng for these projects.

“We commend the school’s efforts in their commitment to raising funds. Although it may take a few years, I hope the school management will succeed in reaching their fundraising goal.

“I urge the Ministry of Education (MoE), related Federal and state departments, corporate sectors, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), and good Samaritans to assist SJK(C) Boon Beng in its construction project for the new school building and multipurpose hall,” he said.

Also present were Deputy Chief Minister I Datuk Dr Mohamad Abdul Hamid, Bukit Tambun assemblyman Goh Choon Aik, Batu Kawan parliamentary service centre director Ewe Chee Way, Chow’s political secretary Lau Keng Ee, unity government’s Sungai Bakap candidate Dr Joohari Ariffin and SJK(C) Boon Beng Board of Directors chairman Ma Chai Long.
