KUALA TERENGGANU: Three schools in Hulu Terengganu remained closed as they were still inundated by flood waters.

State Education, Science and Technology and Human Resources Committee chairman Datuk Ahmad Razif Abdul Rahman said the schools were SM Agama Mahmudiah, SK Tengku Ampuan Intan and SK Bukit Tadok.

However, the new school session at 28 other schools in Terengganu which was postponed yesterday due to floods, started today, he said.

"If the situation returns to normal, the three schools will begin their new session tomorrow," he told reporters after visiting a pupil with a heart problem at SK Wakaf Mempelam here, today.

Some 12,000 students were affected on the first day of the new school session in Terengganu following the closure of 31 schools, which was announced by the state Education Department due to the second wave of floods in the state.

Ahmad Razif said schools which were closed, must make a replacement on Saturday and parents could contact the schools or District Education office on the status of their children's school.

Meanwhile, a Bernama check at SK Tengku Ampuan Intan in Kuala Berang found 150 people comprising teachers and members of Rela, the school's Parent-Teacher Association, Civil Defence Department and Terengganu Community Development Agency in a gotong-royong to clean up the school from 8.30am.

Headmaster Mohd Hassan Deraman said the school management did not expect a flood when the new session was about to begin.

"This is the first time we could not open the school on the first day of the new session because previously, floods happened during the school holidays.

"Unfortunately, flood inundated the school once again at 3am yesterday, and the school had to be closed," he said.

In KOTA BARU, only Sekolah Agama Bantuan Kerajaan (SABK) Diniah in Rantau Panjang, Pasir Mas, was closed due to flood.

Kelantan Education Department school management sector head Abdul Aziz Abdullah said four schools in Tumpat, which were closed yesterday, would open from tomorrow.

The schools are SK Simpangan, SK Bendang Pak Yong, SK Telok Jering and SABK Nurulhuda.
