Floods: School Principals, Headmasters In Kelantan Told To Be Prepared

Last update: 02/01/2018
KOTA BHARU, Jan 2 (Bernama) -- All school principals and headmasters in flood-prone areas in Kelantan have been urged to be vigilant and prepared to face the disaster.

State Education Department (JPN) director Muhammad Zahari Othman also reminded students to take care of themselves and not to play in floodwaters.

Among the main issues discussed at the special meeting on flood disaster between the department and district education offices (PPD) today were to activate the flood operations room and to update the task schedule at each PPD in dealing with the natural disaster, he said in a statement here.

Muhammad Zahari said three schools in Tanah Merah, namely Sekolah Kebangsaan (SK) Sokor, SK Ladang Kerilla and Sekolah Menengah Kebangsaan Ladang Kerilla, were closed today as the roads leading to the schools were inundated with floodwaters due to heavy rain in the remote areas.

The JPN was now monitoring the situation and the schools would be reopened if the roads were accessible, he added.
