Free school uniforms scheme revived

Kota Kinabalu: Yayasan Sabah has revived the free distribution programme of school uniforms to government primary schools in the State, as of 2008.

Disclosing this here, Monday, the foundation’s Uniform Quality Assessment Committee Chairman Haji Hassan Haji Momong said the exercise would benefit nearly 300,000 primary school pupils throughout the State, including those in religious schools run by the Sabah Islamic Department (Jheains).

This year, the programme would involve an expenditure of RM15 million, over the next 10 years.

A set of uniforms would be distributed to Year1-3 pupils and two sets for Year 2-6, to include pants and shoes for boys, and baju kurung or pinafore, and shoes for girls.

According to Hassan, the first consignment of uniforms was concentrated on the rural areas for distribution since October, and the rest would be sent out in stages.

He expected this year’s exercise would be completed by early next year.

He said Yayasan Sabah would live up to its social obligation to ensure that young students are not deprived of education.
