KENINGAU: The State Education Department (JPNS) always welcomes motivation and cooperation from the state’s schools, said JPNS Chief Assistant Director of Students Affairs, Student Development Sector Fazilah Haji Abdul Rahman.

“This includes motivational sessions from those who are successful and implementation of the Social Responsibility Programme (CSR) initiatives in schools.

“We build a profile for each of the more than 500,000 students in Sabah and we know their needs.

“”So after we have identified the needs of these students, we share that information with parties willing to provide assistance or CSR,” Fazilah said at the School Level Teacher’s Day Celebration at SJKC Cheng Ming here, officiated by Director General of Yun Fook Resources Sdn Bhd Datuk Yap Yun Fook.

Earlier, Fazilah expressed her gratitude to Yun Fook Resources Sd Bhd as a supplier of milk to schools in the state who ensured that the programme could be implemented.

She said the School Milk Programme (PSS) is a government effort to foster the practice of drinking milk implemented by the Ministry of Education with the participation of milk producing companies in line with the concept of Malaysia Incorporate.

This programme was started in 1983 together with the Supplementary Food Plan programme and managed by the Ministry of Education.

“Starting in 2020, PSS has been empowered with a number of improvements such as the open tender procurement method, provision of unflavoured full cream milk for every school day and the supply involving most of the local milk suppliers.

“This programme also aims to help in the recovery of the national economy in addition to benefiting the growth of students,” she said who represented the State Education Department Director.

“The programme aims to foster the practice of consuming milk or dairy products in the diet of students, especially those from low-income families,” she said.

Fazilah hoped this would be a practice among students until they grow up so that they can be a healthy and fit generation.

On the school’s Teacher’s Day celebration, she said it brought a big message of appreciating the hard work and services of teachers.

Present were Assistant Director of the School Management Sector, State Education Department, Richie Kong; Assistant Directors of the State Education Department, Rosaineh Suhaibul, Suppary Jumin and Nowenna Willie D Tamsin; District Education Officer, Johari @ Jaibet Sabin, SJKC Cheng Ming Headmistress, Chee Sui Fung, district education officers and teachers.
