Hisham: Never mind the uniform

MARAN: Attend school even if you do not have your uniforms on the first day of the new session.

“I am worried as there are students who have said they would not be attending school because their uniforms were lost or destroyed in the floods,” Education Minister Datuk Seri Hishammuddin Tun Hussein said at a gotong royong to clean up SK Paya Pasir, here yesterday.

He said school principals had to understand there were students who had lost their uniforms in the floods.

He said the Government wanted to see all pupils and students attend school on Jan 3.

“There will not be any punishment if they are not in their school uniforms,” Hishammuddin said, adding that the students should also not be embarrassed if they were without the uniforms.

He also urged textbook suppliers to double their effort to print the books so that they could be delivered on time.

The Meteorological Department has forecasted less rain over the coming days in all states except Sabah and Sarawak.

Moderate occasional rainfall is expected in Sarawak while rain is expected in eastern Sabah in the morning and western Sabah in the afternoon.

The statement said high tide was expected at several places off the peninsula, Sarawak and western Sabah for five days beginning today.
