KOTA KINABALU: The involvement of Assemblymen in supporting activities carried out by schools is part of the commitment and shared responsibility to develop children's education.

Minister of Entrepreneur Development and Cooperatives Datuk Ewon Benedick said that through this involvement, the additional needs and assistance required by schools can be heard and appropriate action can be taken.

He said he used the Assemblyman’s allocation to solve some of the problems faced by schools, while if it involves a large allocation, it will be brought to the ministry level.

Ewon, who is the Penampang Member of Parliament and Kadamaian State Assemblyman reiterated his intention and commitment to continue helping schools in his area, including providing special allocations for the Integrated Special Education Program (PPKI).

"Last year, we allocated funds to improve school facilities such as toilets, but it was not enough because there are many school needs.

"As the representative of this area, I am responsible for facilitating or finding solutions to the problems faced by schools, whether using the representative's allocation or raising the need to the relevant ministry," he said.

He said this when met after attending the Year 6 Appreciation Ceremony and PPKI of SK Luyang, at the Auditorium of the Sabah Department of Culture and Arts Complex (JKKN) here yesterday.

Ewon said that the requirements of special needs students in several schools in the Penampang and Kadamaian areas will also be given due attention.

"I am aware of the primary and secondary schools in the Penampang Parliamentary constituency and the Kadamaian area and my commitment is to provide a certain allocation to help the needs of special education teaching in these schools.”

"Last year, I channeled allocations through agencies under my ministry to all primary and secondary schools in the areas I represent, namely Penampang and Kadamaian, but it was not enough because there are many school needs," he said.

At the event, Ewon presented graduation certificates to 95 Year 6 students and 9 Special Education Programme students."
