PORT KLANG: Some Chinese schools face a huge financial challenge because they are only partially-aided by the Government, said MCA president Datuk Seri Dr Chua Soi Lek.
He said almost half of the 1,292 Chinese schools nationwide were partially-aided schools.
The onus, Dr Chua said, was on other parties including the schools’ boards of governors to raise funds.
“Chinese schools are able to keep going because of Chinese associations, boards of governors, Parent-Teacher associations and well-wishers,” he said when launching the installation of an LCD-based teaching aid at SJK (C) Lee Min in Telok Gong here yesterday.
The hardware was donated by local television manufacturer MTV Digital Technology Sdn Bhd, with the software sponsored by Multiple Technology Sdn Bhd.
Six classrooms in the school were fitted with the equipment.
Dr Chua also announced that the school would be given an allocation of RM30,000.
